Delicious crispy fried chicken, fries etc. and almost entire menu is available gluten free. It's so wonderful to feel safe from cross contamination. Very knowledgeable staff give lots of details, e.g. they have dedicated fryer for chicken and other fried foods like chips and fries, use separate utensils for spreads... Owner has family with celiac, so they know how important it is to be careful.

They glutened me GOOD, this was definitely a stronger reaction than I get to accidental contamination. I mentioned specifically that I'm celiac, so this isn't a "lack of awareness" situation.

Interesting that I had the Oakland Proposition chicken a bit before and it was fine. Judging by the reviews, something may be up with the one in SF.

Really disappointed because the food was good and the promise of gluten free was so convincing.

I’m celiac and specified a severe allergy. I tested my food twice with the nima sensor and it came back positive for gluten. Unfortunately I made the mistake of trusting this place, but no matter what you say to them, you can’t be sure. The wings and fries tested positive even though they were labeled as gluten free.

Absolutely delicious! First time I've been able to have fried chicken in past 5 years since being diagnosed coeliac! Bread is nice too! Even the hand made cut chips are gorgeous! If you want to eat out cheap in San Francisco, this is the place to go to!

Gluten free fried chicken!!! Dedicated fryer so gluten fries too. My favorite is the salad, due to a really delicious baby kale, romaine, basil, mint mix. The staff is really knowledgeable about gluten free. Today they saved me from accidentally ordered malted mayo with my fries. I’ve eaten here dozens of times and never gotten sick, also it is delicious. They also do dairy-free and vegan.

Delicious! My non-Celiac boyfriend said my GF chicken tasted better than his regular. A little pricey, but decent portions. Spicy slaw is very spicy. Best GF bread I've had - it actually stretched when I tore a piece off! My only concern is that the GF plates don't look any different- could be easy to have a mix up on the kitchen. The waiter said it was the GF plate, but I felt like I had look at my bread to verify that it was GF (GF bread always looks different.)

GLUTEN-FREE FRIED CHICKEN. Boom!!

But wait - there's more! GF buttermilk biscuits! GLUTEN-FREE FRENCH FRIES!!

Cute small hip place - several solidly GF options, staff was v patient with our repeated questions ("this is GF? Really? How about the fries? They're GF too?!"). Some seating but not tons.

We are super-happy to have such a great GF option available! K2 said, "this is my new favorite restaurant!":)

This place rocks. I ordered the gluten free fried chicken with salad and a side of fries. I highly recommend trying the sweet habanero sauce on your fried chicken. It's amazing. Just the right amount of sweet and spicy.

They use dedicated friers for the gluten free fried chicken *and* the fries. I've eaten here twice now and not had any issues whatsoever. Both the person taking my order and the server who brought me my food from the kitchen confirmed that it was gluten free.

The second time I went in I met the owner and we had a good chat. He mentioned that when they were starting out they tried all kinds of different batters and he actually prefers the gluten free version. It was so good and it just happened to be gluten free. He mentioned having a friend who is Celiac as well.

I didn't ask about gluten free bread or biscuits so can't speak to that.
