This rating is for not having safe gluten free food, not for the food itself. I called a couple of weeks ago. Though the fryer is said to be dedicated, the filtering system strains oil from all the fryers through the same filters and then the oil goes back into the fryers, so all oil is cross contaminated with oil used for gluten. I appreciate the honesty of the staff helping me. If you don’t have Celiac and cross contamination isn’t an issue, then this place is the bomb for chicken wings.
FOTM is one of my favorite places in PDX. The wings are GF, as are the majority of the sauces. They do warn of possible Xcontamination in the fryer; however, I've ate here hundreds of times and never had an issue. They also have a couple different choices for cider, and often one on tap.
Love their sauces and the wings. Everything is clearly marked. I've never been sick from eating here.
They are known for their sauces and wings. Wings are gluten free and out of all their sauces only two have gluten in them.
There are many sauce options.
Do not have a dedicated fryer for GF, especially when busy. Only able to order grilled chicken breast with low confidence of no cross contamination. Also Fremont location makes pizza so flour is everywhere.
I wanted to give this place 2.5 stars but the staff were so great I need to give it more. The gf options were pretty much gluten food with things like buns, etc omitted. The wings were tasty but as another reviewer mentioned the fryer is shared. Even the nachos and burgers weren't an option due to ingredients in the cheese sauce and meat mix. Lots of tasty sounding stuff on the menu but not for the gf eater.
Fire on the Mountain (FOTM) has become a staple part of my gluten free diet in the last year or so. Their wings are amazing and only two of their regular sauces have gluten in them. Also, all of their sauces are labeled with gluten free or vegan/vegetarian. While the gluten free vegetarian or vegan might have trouble finding food options (their vegan wings do have breading), it is a great venue for groups mixed with various dietary concerns.
