I appreciated the honesty, but was bummed that while they offer gluten free bread options, they wipe down and use the exact same prep surface as their gluten bread options. So we decided to order fried foods only since they had a separate frier for gf chicken and fries. My daughter enjoyed the food but was pretty disappointed about not getting something with a bit of veggies.

Amazing selection and food! Had the Thunderbowl based on the other reviews on this app. It was incredible! The French fries are good, too, and made in a separate fryer. Definitely going back!

Have eaten there several times. Gluten free deep fried chicken is amazing! When building a sandwich, was offered gluten free biscuit, roll, or sourdough. We tried one with biscuit and one with sourdough. Both were fantastic. Previously have enjoyed the bowls with bamboo rice. Parking nearby is limited, but is not far from the heart of downtown.

We got takeout via online ordering during COVID. Their online platform has extensive allergen information. My kids devoured the tater tots and fried chicken and grilled cheese. My husband and I had bowls. It was all fantastic.

Excellent. Would definitely come back. A bit pricey, but worth it. Got GF Thunderbird, GF Thunderbowl, side of fries, and Palomas (they have a drinks menu). GF roll made on site and there was a case that had some GF pastries, too, that we didn’t try. See photos for menu and pictures of the food.

Dedicated gluten free fryer

Food was phenomenal! What a great find. They were also really good with my GF/DF daughter and were able to get her a GF fried chicken sandwich and fries. I got a GF Thunderbird Bowl and it was ahhhmazing.

They are very careful about cross contamination with a separate oven, separate toaster, and separate fryer.

I had the GF pancakes and the GF fried chicken and they were AMAZING! My non GF boyfriend loved them both as well. It is so nice to be able to come to a place for breakfast and have virtually as many options as those who are not GF. The quality was top-notch and the service was great as well.

You most try this place, even if you’re not GF!

Oh. My. Goodness. This was one of our highlights of our trip to Asheville. Super yes place, friendly and knowledgeable in the ways of GF and Cross contamination risks. We had the best fried chicken sandwich I’d ever had AND they have GF sourdough bread!!! I couldn’t figure out why they weren’t busy and it was probably because it was a weeknight and close to closing. Please go here and keep them in business until I can justify a reason to come back.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff and amazing food! We WILL be back!! One son is dairy free and had a bacon and egg sandwich on a gluten free, dairy free sourdough. Another son and I have celiac and ate the gluten free fried chicken biscuit. It was VERY good and a good size biscuit. We will definitely be back!

Dedicated fryer! Tater tots like you wouldn't believe. Love the Thunderbird gf fried chicken sandwich on gf bun. Reasonable prices, friendly staff, clean tables including outside seating, dog friendly. It's a little outside downtown but its worth the couple minute drive. Great experience.

Fantastic experience here. I was in Asheville for a long weekend and ate here 3 times while I was in town. I love that there are so many options (and that the menu notes that most menu items can be made GF/DF) and everything on the menu looked so good. My favorite thing I ate there was the Thunderbowl with its delicious, crispy GF fried chicken...something I can't get just anywhere.

We’ve been here a few times and thought the food was incredible. Almost the entire menu can be made GF/DF. GF buns + dedicated fryer. One of the servers told me the owner’s partner has celiac, so they designed the kitchen + menu to accommodate allergies. On some occasions, the servers have been more cautious and made it known that there is gluten in the kitchen (they bake pastries). If you go, I would just make it clear that you have celiac, and you should be fine.

The thunderbird is unbelievable. Can’t believe it’s GF.
