I enjoyed my pulled pork sandwich, but I will say the “3 pigs barbecue” in Bellevue does it a little better. The beans were fine and the cornbread muffin was tasty. My brother very much enjoyed his baby back rib dinner. Said the ribs were...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.
