Delicious GF FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH! Dedicated fryers for gf. They use separate cutting boards, knives, they even have a separate batch of coleslaw and mayo for spreading on the gf bread. The owner explained to me that they take every precaution when they get a gf order.

I've eaten here 3 times now. Each time was super delicious, but both of the last two times I've had unignorable digestive issues that lasted a couple days, so this week was the last time.

My reaction wasn't as severe as if I was given the regular chicken, but definitely some amount of gluten in there above what you'd expect for a dedicated fryer, and I'm not usually super sensitive to (non-breaded) french fries from shared fryers. Maybe the contamination is in the breading itself.

I'm going to stick to aburayaoakland.com's fried chicken instead. I've had no issues with theirs so far.

It's novel to have GF fried chicken, but it is the driest chicken I have had in my life. A few times I have gotten the fried chicken salad with a side of spicy slaw, and both are marked "gluten free" when I get them (selecting GF on the chicken salad and adding a note to the slaw just in case). Can't say I felt the greatest after each of those meals, I had some brain fog.

I've been here so many times and only had an issue once. If you mark an order as GF they replace the biscuit with fries. That time I also replaced the salad with more fries and they put a biscuit in it. Every other time I just explicitly say no biscuit and celiac disease and I've not had a problem since.

Honestly the food isn't out of this world but it's nice to have a GF option. The bread for the sandwich was terrible the one time I had it, but the chicken is good.

Tofu and chicken are better than chicken tenders. Ate here many times and it’s been very safe except the last time when ordering through delivery service. It was not marked gf on the box, and it clearly wasn’t because it had bbq sauce on the tofu and non gf bread. So might be an issue between prop chix and delivery order thru delivery service.

Dedicated fryer, which is great. But I felt unwell after eating a gluten free (and emphasized for Celiac) sandwich here. It was very busy, so maybe I need to try when they are less crowded. Also, I’d get the fried chicken plate because the sandwich was too dry.

I’ve had their food before and was really happy with it. Ordered the gluten free fried chicken from them on postmates, and even added a note to the order reiterating that it needed to be gluten free, and had a very serious reaction to the food, one of the worst I’ve ever had. Don’t think I can ever feel safe going back again. 😣

Wow, I haven’t had fried chicken since my diagnosis, and this was worth the wait! I had the fried chicken sandwich with chips and it was fabulous. Service was so friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back when I’m in the area.

I go here far too often because they have a dedicated fryer and it's near my house. They use mariposa for their GF buns and my gluten eating wife gets them too because she says they're better than the standard buns. Great chicken, good service, and I've never gotten sick from any of the dozens of times I've been there.
