I love a good brisket, but I HATE biting into a mouthful of fat! There are very few places that trim the fat off their beef well enough to suit me, so I usually stick with chicken. The Brisket at Steamboat was delicious, tasty and...More

Two words: Rib Tips. Two more words: Burnt Ends. Both meats are spectacular. The tips are large, meaty and caramelized. Decadently rich and flavorful. Simply outstanding. The ends are moist and tender, and the taste is out of this world. Tack on some hand-cut fries...More

My son with a peanut allergy and limited bbq exposure was fine and loves their 'angus burger'. I'm assuming that's still an option. Not sure about gluten free options though.

I'm not certain. I still check next time I'm there. I usually get the bourbon apple and I don't believe there is any gluten in it.
