Being Celiac a rare treat that I missed was fried chicken. Then we went to Busboys and Poets… I was amazed by the fried chicken dinner, mashed potatoes with gravy and collard greens!! So delicious! The wait staff and ambiance is absolutely a delight. Great food !

They have gluten free options but it’s not very good. Staff is knowledgeable but the level of precaution is questionable.. I used to eat here but I stopped because I just don’t like the food and had doubts about cross contamination.

Great food. They do not fry anything with gluten! Tons of vegan options. This place is a local (chain) gem!

Not a good choice for ones with Celiac. Yes they have gluten free choices on menu, however fryer is shared and my “gluten free” salad came with two strips of crispy bread on it. Wait staff did not seem to be knowledgeable about celiac

No dedicated fryer for the fried chicken. I called to confirm that they have a dedicated fryer and was told that they do not. The fryer is shared with food with gluten. They told me the fried chicken was not safe for people with celiac.
