When I told the server I was celiac, he was extremely responsive and reassuring in letting me know they take precautions to avoid cc. Chef Rob also came out and spoke to us, telling me that he will handle my food start to finish and I will be safe. I was and it was amazing. I had an omelet and America fries, I did not get sick. He was awesome and so was the experience.

It was a fun atmosphere but when Nima tells me there is gluten in the fried chicken I avoid it at all costs. So sad as I was really looking forward to it!

I’m over the moon to finally have gf fried chicken!! The menu is very clearly marked between gf and “ask to be made gf” and the waitstaff was great about accommodating my friend’s lemon allergy, too.

The food was amazing, I must say that first. But when I told our waiter my girlfriend had celiac and she will get really sick with cross contamination, he brought out a cheese board with the bread sitting on top of the cheeses/food. When we requested it to be fixed, he seemed to get annoyed. But the gluten free fried chicken was definitely all it was cracked up to be!

Just ask the waiter what’s actually gluten free because for some reason they label their stuff on their menu GF “Gluten friendly ” which isn’t exactly gluten free on some of the items.

Had a very memorable, delicious meal here, just a block from the convention center! I had the GF fried chicken salad and it was absolutely perfect. Would go again in a heartbeat. Note that some of their items are done in shared fryers -- wanted to tried the fried deviled eggs but they are done in a shared fryer. (GF chicken is separate/safe.)

Get the gf fried chicken! I also recommend making a reservation if you are going on a Saturday night. Fun place, AWESOME chicken, and a very educated establishment. They even made a special dessert for my birthday.

I'm a celiac and tried this restaurant visiting Austin. The sous chef Rob came out to let me know they had an potential contamination issue and they were changing the fryer's oil. He then sent out a complimentary plate of amazing made in-house gluten free crackers, fruit and cheese. Service and food are fantastic.

Owner is celiac and they take gluten free seriously. The manager Ryan was very friendly and helpful. I also have allergies to alliums (onion and garlic) and he talked to the chef and came back with 3 recommendations. They could do a burger or their grilled chicken. I got the latter with mashed potatoes and it was wonderful. 3 hours later not throwing up, so I know it was safe. Mellow restaurant bar near the convention center. Good selection of wine and beer on tap. Not too crowded or too loud. I would go back again for sure.

For the first time I enjoyed the pleasure of having gluten free fried chicken with mash potatoes and greens. The chicken was simply delicious. Very nice atmosphere and the music was great. Look forward to going back. The gentleman that took our order, very knowledgeable about what is happening downtown Austin. We had an extra great time because of his information.

Gluten free fried chicken, mashed potatoes and side salad were great. Loved gluten free brownie ice cream sandwich for dessert which was big enough for two. Good service. Did not get sick. Wine was pricey which drops rating to 4.

I've only found gf fried chicken one other time in 4 years and this was far superior! Crispy, crunchy, tender inside and not greasy. Also had bone marrow popcorn. Very good! Lots of choices. It is a seasonal menu. Came with a large group, many who ordered regular fried chicken. Mine was on a black plate. Everyone raved.

Quite a few things: 1) Website does not accurately reflect the amount of options. You will have stuff to eat here! 2) Unless you're a vegetarian. I recently started eating meat and thank goodness. Would only have 1 option, you guessed it, a salad. 3) The service I had was TERRIBLE! Our waiter basically ignored my mother and I. Took forever to order, constantly sipping empty water glasses, he wasn't friendly. Very off out from that. 4) I was excited for the GF chicken and GF zucchini bread, but the chicken was SPICY. It's not talked about on this app. Also zucchini bread wasn't on menu- maybe it's seasonal? This app greatly talked up Max's. Service brought my ranking down. It seems overrated from previous reviews. That said, it is a safe place to eat.

Showed up with my girlfriend near closing time. She's not gf, I have celiac and other dietary limitations. Ordered the gluten free friend chicken and mashed potatoes... A little pricey but this isn't -really- a wine dive. Server and main chef were very accommodating though one kitchen employee was grumbling about how close to closing it was (we sat viewing the kitchen...). I didn't get ill and the fried chicken was great. Non-gf GF loved it too.

Second time having the gf country fried chicken and it’s to DIE FOR! They have a dedicated fryer and the sides of potatoes and collard greens were scrumptious. I don’t know how they can make the breading so crispy and flaky but it’s simply delectable. They have a honey chipotle sauce for dipping on the side that ignited my tastebuds in a world of salty, crispy, sweet, and tangy. I’m truly thankful for Max’s Wine Dive for their dedication to celiac safe cuisine that makes me feel like a normal diner.

The entire waitstaff was very friendly and our waitress made sure my meal was gluten free in all aspects. Their menu is over half marked (GF) “gluten friendly” and a couple items are (AGF) “ask for gluten friendly.” The thought to have great tasting fried chicken that is gluten friendly was an amazing treat as well. Even the fried deviled eggs were made with potato flour, so an extra added treat to have an appetizer as well. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone.

So it made me feel a little bit better. There menu has options that can be prepared gluten free. I had the FRIED CHICKEN ; mashed potatos and collard greens. Huge servings. breast thigh and leg. It was Awesome!! And I didn't get sick.Yeah!! they also have a dedicated fryer... woo hoooo!! And the wine was great too... I will be back!!!

We stopped here based on good reviews but the entire experience was terrible, start to finish. They said the fried chicken would take 30 minutes but it took an hour. We ordered Caesar salad while we waited and it never arrived. Then there was some sort of contamination after waiting an hour for our food and we saw the chef yelling at our server that the menu says ‘gluten-friendly’, not ‘gluten-free’... We were told the fries were not gluten free on the tender basket and that we would get a salad instead, but guess what was brought out, with the tenders sitting right on top...fries! Absolutely terrible experience. After waiting an hour! We were in at 2pm and there were very few tables, almost no one else in the entire restaurant- stay away if you’re celiac. We should have known when we saw ‘gluten friendly’ instead of ‘gluten free’ on the menu but took a risk based on positive reviews. Wrong choice.

I got severely glutened from this place. I had the crab cake and gf fried chicken. They reassured me that it was a separate fryer and all celiac friendly but they mentioned they had a new chef that had started and he must not be aware of the sensitivities of celiac as I got very sick immediately after eating here. Beware.

Awesome gf fried chicken! My highly sensitive daughter has eaten here twice with no symptoms. I would have given the entire meal four stars but we had a few waiters due to one going off duty so I was given my husband's beer rather than my gf cider I ordered. We switched upon figuring out and luckily I didn't suffer any symptoms.

We haven't had any problems and the food is delicious (entrees in particular; some of the sides are kind of bland). The fried chicken is a specialty and is certainly among the best I've ever had, gluten-free or not. Be sure to specify gluten-free fried chicken, since they prepare it both ways.

We were so excited to try the fried chicken after reading the reviews. When ordering I informed the waitress that my kids had celiac disease. The sous chef then came out to talk to us and told us he did not feel it was safe for us to eat at the restaurant. He said he can't confirm that the dedicated fryers were actually being used correctly. I appreciated the honesty but do not recommend for celiacs.

Fried chicken and greens! OMG the best chicken, even counting before I found out I had celiacs! Staff was kind and low key about my request for extra caution without drawing undue attention to me like some restaurants have to act like it's a big production to bring out gluten free food to a customer and I just want a dining experience like every other customer!

First time we ate here it was GREAT. Chicken was juicy and tasty and best of all gluten free. But these last two times I have gotten sick. I'm celiac and I did tell the waiter. I do not get sick right away and when I do I'm just trying to get home rather than call them back. Not sure if the chef is the same? I was so happy to finally find fried chicken but now I don't think we are going back. Not worth the consequences.

Love love love this place. The owner of the company is actually Celiac so it's a big deal for them. The gluten free fried chicken is fried in a dedicated fryer (although it takes about 25 minutes to cook, more if it's busy) and is one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. The staff there is also super friendly, and I will definitely be going back there.

food was great but I got glutened. I'm sure it was either the appetizer or the ketchup, which was unmarked, so I don't know the brand. I know the chicken is fried separately. I was really excited since the owner has Celiac, but slip ups in the kitchen happen. I won't be back though. Can't risk the intestinal damage and horrible symptoms.

OMG! It took my cousin from Chicago to come down to Houston to tell me she'd found this place online. I can't remember the last time I had fried chicken and I LOVE the stuff!! I've eaten it twice since March (it's July). I also have to be low-carb/ketogenic due to other metabolic issues and even though I ate 3 pieces, it did not kick me out of ketosis the next day! The first time, the waitress said that the people who have tried both the gf and regular actually say they like the gf version better!!!! It is to die for!!!!! So the plate is about 18 bucks. You get 3 large pcs of FRIED chicken, a leg, a breast and a thigh. It's a LOT of food. You get mashed potatoes, which are ALSO wonderful (but I had to sub due to my other dietary needs), it also comes with some collard greens that are not bad. I'm not the biggest fan of collard greens but mostly because I just have not eaten them a whole lot in my lifetime. It cost me $6 to sub green beans. It was a whole lot of them but I thought it was quite a steep sub. You could sub fries and one or two other things that I couldn't eat for free. As far as I know, there's no other way to get the chicken a la carte. You can add a piece to the plate for like 6 bucks and split it with someone. It is a LOT of food, we are big eaters and we always take food home from here. Like another reviewer said, they have a dedicated fryer for their gluten free chicken. They also have some gluten friendly beer. At least they did when I was there last week. The staff has always been out of this world friendly and super helpful. Definitely on our top 2 gf meals to eat at Htown restaurants. This is for the Washington locations, have not been to others YET ;) (mouth actually watering as I type)
