Just coming here from North Carolina I saw it and said yes. Asked for sweet tea and to my surprise I finally found a BBQ joint that doesn't have it. Got the sampler plate and after tasting a little of each I figured they made...More

If you love BBQ then prepared yourself for heaven. The food is out of this world. They have won countless awards and after you taste it, you will want to live next door. We came for lunch. We had them make our dinner to go,...More

Many people gush about this restaurant, but when the best thing you had was the fried macaroni balls, I would recommend going someplace else. I could barely get a sharp knife thru the rib meat. It was grey, and the fat lay in gobs instead...More

I was on a trip when I ate at that restaurant. I have no idea if they have meals to meet these dietary requirements. You could review their online menu to see if they have meals that might work. Good luck and happy travels.
