Gluten free fried chicken and fries! Menu is not marked gluten free but I called to ask and they confirmed. It was delicious and I had no reaction!

Picked this up for dinner tonight. Was told the breading on the chicken is a corn starch and rice flour blend. Also asked about the sauces and was told all the sauces are now tamari based. It was so good!

Great gluten free fried chicken. Calvin’s wasn’t intended to be gluten free; he just found that a gluten free batter made the best chicken.

Fries, tenders and wings are all incredible. Some sides are strangely bad: avoid the slaw (just cabbage in vinegar) and edamame and corn (unseasoned and cold).

Unclear if the dipping sauces are gf, so I’d avoid if sensitive. Additionally, gluten containing bread, onion rings and poppers are sold (and it’s not clear what the cross contamination protocols are).

Calvin makes amazing friend chicken. As someone who is celiac, finding good fried chicken is really difficult. Calvin explained that he was just looking to make the crispiest and crunchiest fried chicken he could- it just turned out the batter just happened to be gluten free! What a happy surprise. Only a couple of the wing options are GF right now since he just opened, but Calvin explained with the recent influx of GF customers, he plans on adding GF buns and to convert most of his sauce options to GF in the coming weeks. So, it should be a mostly gf menu!!! I also expect that he will mark the menu better with the gf options going forward. It seems like since he’s just getting started things are still getting settled, but he plans on better catering to the GF crowd going forward. GF or not, this was GREAT fried chicken and my non-gf partner loved it too. Give it a try!!!

Wow. Gluten free fried chicken with almost a slight teriyaki vibe under the breading. Great fries as well.
