I have eaten here several times. I have become sick only a couple times, however the last time I got food from here I literally found a piece of penne pasta in my my mashed potatoes. So...that was beyond disappointing. I did end up with a DH reaction that went away quickly, so I am thankful it wasn’t an all out sickness episode.

They had an allergy list but it’s does not take cross contamination under consideration. No dedicated fryer for wings, fries or nachos which are all listed as gluten free.

Good as always. Many items on the menu are gluten-free or can be made gluten-free. They have an allergen list.

I ordered wings and a Rice bowl both were marked as gluten sensitive on the menu. I informed the server that I can not have gluten. She said all items on the menu were gluten free( not true). My wings arrived at the table and I had to send them back. They gave me the boneless wings(breaded) they replaced them with bone in wings. After eating most of my food I was feeling very ill. I am not sure what happened but I ate gluten.

Last time I had went, the staff was not entirely sure what I could have, she had given me the allergen binder which was good, but from what I saw and read all I could have there was the steamed broccoli and applesauce. Maybe they have more items now, but there was not much of a variety.

The menu has “GS” (gluten sensitive) next to the items that don’t have any gluten ingredients in them. When I asked my server if there were dedicated fryers or spaces for preparing gluten free foods she said no. I had the corn chips and queso which was good and then the riblets for my meal. Fries that came with meal were not in dedicated fryer, so I asked for just the riblets and was still charged for the fries. Probably won’t be back here as it was too risky as someone with celiac.
