    The chicken nuggets were beyond awful. It was basically plain chicken with a light dusting and fried. Not what you would expect. I also had the wings which were better, but note they put the sauce on the side. They did cook everything in separate oil, but the the woman working the front was clueless. Sounded like the kitchen new more. We had to wait a LONG time for GF options. If this was yelp I would have given 1 star for service.

    Very conscience about gluten. We chatted for quite a while with the owner and she told us how she started offering GF food because of a family of regular customers who had a child with Celiac Disease or some other condition requiring GF. The child's mom helped her learn how to do GF safely.

    The food was good and they take precautions for cross contamination. Did not call a head, just had to wait a little longer for food. It's worth the wait

    Based on other reviews, I called ahead and ordered Gluten Free. Staff were really helpful and aware; food was delicious - and no issues (Coeliac). Highly recommended.

    I called about 20 minutes ahead of time and told them we were coming. The young man behind the counter was so friendly. He warned me our food would take longer. It wasn't a long wait at all. Chicken was delicious. He warned us which sauces weren't GF. We had the mild hot sauce and honey mustard with our popcorn chicken. Celiac kiddo was in heaven. The atmosphere and tables were not great, but the food more than made up for it. Dedicated kitchen space and fryer. Nobody got sick.

    Safe, no reactions, but my chicken was a little overdone, still good. Enjoyed the fries.

    Following the advice in other reviews, we called ahead and let them know that someone with celiac disease was coming in. Staff was very helpful and friendly, and despite warnings that my food would take longer to prepare it came out pretty quickly. French fries were perfectly cooked and the wings were tasty. Definitely want to go back and try the tenders or popcorn chicken next time!

    Best kept GF secret on the island! Call ahead, and they will prepare your GF meal especially for you! Celiacs I know absolutely love this place, it is one of the only "fast food" safe places for Celiacs.

    Great chicken tenders. Didn't get sick but I did call in ahead to let them know I was coming. Great service too and pretty reasonably priced!

    this place is great, with good food and wonderful people. Just call ahead and they will fire up a clean fryer for your gluten free choices.

    they do have dedicted procedures for gfree cooking and they don't make the gfree foods in the fryer (read bottom of review). My celiac son can eat here with no problem. we call ahead so they know to expect us and they have the new oil ready for us when we get there. They have expanded their gfree menu to also included chicken tenders. Now you can get the family meal completely gfree!!!! (just remember to ask for the salad without croutons.) they don't have a dedicated fryer BUT they put oil in a pan/pot on the stovetop. So call ahead and tell them you require a gluten free meal, it takes 20 to 25 minutes before they are ready to cook. my son has celiacs and is very easily cross contaminated, however he has NEVER been cross contaminated at Dirty Lickins

    I just called . . . They do have gluten free chicken fingers, but they do not have a dedicated fryer. Fine if you are gluten intolerant, but not if you have celiac.
