Visiting Nashville and had to stop and get chicken. Ordered the grilled chicken tenders with the mild seasoning as the guy at the register said they were gluten free. For my sides I had the potato salad and the baked beans, both were gluten free. Potato salad and baked beans were delicious. My chicken tenders came out on a piece of bread so I had to bring it back up and let them know it was supposed to be gluten free and I could not have the bread. They got me new chicken tenders without the bread. I did stand at the counter to make sure they just didn't take the bread off and give me back the same chicken tenders. I did see them throw the wrong order in the trash and get me new chicken tenders. Overall the food was good.

Loved everything I tried! When I ordered I said I had a gluten allergy and they immediately alerted the kitchen. Got the grilled tender platter with medium spice. I love texas pete and frank hot sauces. Medium was pretty good, not really super hot. Next time I’d get hot. Platter came with 3 good sized tenders and 2 sides. I picked potato salad(phenom) and baked beans(So. Good.) best part- never got sick!!

Staff is very knowledgeable about gluten-free. They have which sides are GF marked on the menu. It was nice to be able to try Nashville hot chicken, even if it is grilled! I enjoyed mine and my husband enjoyed his regular fried chicken. There is normally a line, so expect to wait. We went around 4 on Saturday and waited 30 minutes.

They made me the grilled tenders. They were really good. Collards were good but also a bit spicy. Good sweet tea. They knew to leave the bread off (but I reminded just in case) baked beans were amazing. Slaw was good. It was a great meal.

Went to here with a coworker to experience the famous Nashville hot chicken. Glad they had at least one gluten-free chicken option, their tenders. And several gluten-free side options. Although not listed as a gluten-free option, their crinkle cut fries do not contain any gluten. However, they are cooked in a shared fryer. Servers seemed knowledgeable of gluten-free items. Very friendly staff.

Be careful here! Coming from out of town, I‘ve always wanted to try Nashville hot chicken, so I was excited that they had gluten free options, grilled tenders and some sides. I specified that I had an allergy and needed the gluten free spice on the chicken. It was tasty, and they knew to leave off the bread even though I didn’t expressly ask for that.

However, a couple hours later that night the all too familiar sickness kicked in, and I was ill until afternoon the next day. I appreciate the precautions that they take, but in a kitchen where every other item is fried, battered, and served on bread, cross contamination must be inevitable and unfortunately I paid the price.

Yum, yum! This staple of Nashville cuisine is totally accessible to us! Separate fryer for GF, so you can get fries too that are safe. Just a warning, though...without all the breading, you may not be able to handle as much heat from the sauce as you might have thought. Those grilled tenders are delicious, but start with a safe level of heat!

So happy we can experience this Nashville staple! I ordered the Medium heat-level grilled tenders (and one single HOT tender so I could test my spice tolerance). I clarified that I wanted a gluten free spice mix on them so they wouldn’t dip them in the vats of liquid spice. I also got a side of baked beans and the potato salad. Everything was delicious and no symptoms! As for spice level, they really just pack on more of the spice mix, so medium was a little mild for me and hot was totally doable (I do love spice). Definitely returning on my next visit.
