    Those with Celiac, I have two words for you....FRIED CHICKEN!!!!!They had a nice selection of gluten free food and the server even brought out freshly made gluten free donuts! I never eat fried food at restaurants for the simple reason of cross contamination, but this business has a dedicated space along with a dedicated fryer!!The server also told me the reason they're so careful is that the owner cannot eat gluten either. Whether the owner has Celiac or not they are taking the correct steps in order to prevent cross contamination. We will be back!!

    It was Restaurant Week so they had a limites menu, but still plenty of options including gluten-free fries chicken. I haven't had fried chicken since being diagnosed celiac and this didn't disappoint! Great atmosphere and staff. I would definitely visit again! Probably a good idea to make reservations - we got lucky without them.

    On line menu is not updated. Was looking forward to gf shrimp/grits because it was on the web menu, then after arriving found out it was not gf. Chef was knowledgable and I ate there w/o getting sick, but they need to keep up w their menu on line. Had the tasting menu w the wine pairings, it was just ok. Wine portions very small.

    The chicken was as good as other reviewers said t would be. The curried okra was also a excellent and the fries as well. They do have a separate dedicated fryer so no issues at all. The chef even came by to tell us all the items that could be modified to fit our needs.

    OMG! It took my cousin from Chicago to come down to Houston to tell me she'd found this place online. I can't remember the last time I had fried chicken and I LOVE the stuff!! I've eaten it twice since March (it's July). I also have to be low-carb/ketogenic due to other metabolic issues and even though I ate 3 pieces, it did not kick me out of ketosis the next day! The first time, the waitress said that the people who have tried both the gf and regular actually say they like the gf version better!!!! It is to die for!!!!! So the plate is about 18 bucks. You get 3 large pcs of FRIED chicken, a leg, a breast and a thigh. It's a LOT of food. You get mashed potatoes, which are ALSO wonderful (but I had to sub due to my other dietary needs), it also comes with some collard greens that are not bad. I'm not the biggest fan of collard greens but mostly because I just have not eaten them a whole lot in my lifetime. It cost me $6 to sub green beans. It was a whole lot of them but I thought it was quite a steep sub. You could sub fries and one or two other things that I couldn't eat for free. As far as I know, there's no other way to get the chicken a la carte. You can add a piece to the plate for like 6 bucks and split it with someone. It is a LOT of food, we are big eaters and we always take food home from here. Like another reviewer said, they have a dedicated fryer for their gluten free chicken. They also have some gluten friendly beer. At least they did when I was there last week. The staff has always been out of this world friendly and super helpful. Definitely on our top 2 gf meals to eat at Htown restaurants. This is for the Washington locations, have not been to others YET ;) (mouth actually watering as I type)

    Fried chicken was out of this world. There were other labeled options on the menu as well that sounded appetizing. My waiter was very knowledgable, what a fantastic experience. The chicken took a while to make, SO worth the wait.

    Excellent gluten free fried chicken that is served on a special plate with mashed potatoes and collard greens. With the restaurant name they obviously have a lot of wine. They don't have many other drink options though - Coke, Diet Coke, tea - sweet and unsweet. They had a handful of beers but only one marked GF.

    I have eaten here several times and have never been sick afterwards. The fired chicken is excellent as is the bone marrow butter popcorn!

    Absolutely wonderful fried chicken. The mashed potatoes and greens were great too. Come with an appetite, the plate has 3 good size pieces of chicken and a large portion of greens and potatoes...enough for 2.

    The French fries were fantastic! And the fried chicken was a treat. The executive chef gave us a free taste of their wild rice pancakes that were very yummy. Definitely a great place to go out and eat safely.

    Great food and several gluten free options. The owner of this chain actually has Celiac, so the staff is trained in handling the food.

    Gluten free fried chicken on regular menu- made in a dedicated fryer with kitchen staff who knows how to actually do GF. It is soooo goood! The other half of their menu is seasonal and changes, and usually about half of it is naturally GF or with few modifications. You can see into the kitchen a little and hear them alerting each other to a GF order, so they take it seriously. A little pricey, but if you don't drink it isn't too bad. I think this is the only place you can get GF fried chicken, and it is glorious. The proprietor of the restaurant has Celiac disease, so GF is something they do right. Free valet parking.

    Amazing gf fried chicken and beer, as well as a few other yummy choices! Great experience and I appreciate that they noted it was "gluten friendly," and not totally gluten free due to the non gf kitchen. But no tummy issues and that's what's important.

    Great gluten free chicken with mashed potatoes and green. Also had the pork appetizer which was delicious. I've never had restaurant gluten free chicken and it was really crunchy.
