Terrible communication. Long story short, the boneless wings we got were breaded and fried and my daughter had already eaten one by the time I confirmed it with the manager. This, after saying we have celiac, asking all the usual questions twice (once when I first called and second when I placed the order - and asking for the order to be marked “gluten allergy.” I was angry when I called to speak with a manager about needing better communication. I can’t understand how an order marked “gluten allergy” made it to us with breading and no one calling to ask if we wanted to sub reg wings - which are supposed to be gf. Frustrating.

Unfortunately I had a horrible reaction to their "gluten free" wings. Miserable in fact. Not sure what I reacted to, so please use caution when eating here.

The traditional wings are gluten free and have there own fryer. Other options have cross contamination. Staff is very knowledgeable. Also has a gluten free bun options, but I only tried the wings.

Staff is very knowledgable on what is gluten free on the menu. The wings are amazing! The fries are in the same fryer as other fried products, so they're not safe. The staff will go over everything that is though. If we lived around here, I would be coming alot.

One of the owners daughters has to be gluten-free as well, so they know the process and understand it. The wings and the fries are both cooked in a separate fryer from any other fried items. Most of the wing sauces are gluten free as well. They’re delicious too!
