Their GF chicken was amazing! It was a great experience to be able to eat fried chicken again.
Staff was very knowledgeable. We had the deviled eggs and fried chicken. My son had the meatloaf. Wonderfully seasoned and crispy. Even my local grandma loved it!
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.
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 chicken and apps
Gluten free FRIED CHICKEN!!! first time in over 30 years!! fabulous bartender!! great selection of wine... a 10** in my book... will definitely be Back... Thank you
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)
Fabulous fried chicken. Need to add some desserts to gluten free options.
Amazing gf fried chicken and beer, as well as a few other yummy choices! Great experience and I appreciate that they noted it was "gluten friendly," and not totally gluten free due to the non gf kitchen. But no tummy issues and that's what's important.
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.
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.
I have Celiac and have to be very careful what and where I eat. I have severe reactions to even small amounts of gluten. I was excited but afraid to eat here. they told me the owner has Celiac. 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.
One of my favorite restaurant experiences! Great wine list. Great music! Great service! And the fried chicken was AMAZING! The chef came out after I was eating to check and asked me if I was celiac. I am not but my daughter is. However I eat 100% GF as well.
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.
Their GF jalapeño buttermilk fried chicken was amazing! We also had a great salad with huge jumbo shrimp. Great bubbles list too. They were very careful with our GF order and told us the round plates indicate GF while the square are not gf. Several people came to check on our order and reassure us throughout the eve.
Love this place! They remember my gluten allergy when I make a reservation and even ask "are there anymore allergies we should be aware of?" The fried chicken and collard greens are off the hook. Great brunch menu also. I always feel safe eating here.
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!
