GREAT GF fried chicken and overall really good dining experience. They also add a service fee rather than expecting servers to solely live off tips which is awesome. I like to support a business that supports and values their workers. Overall they had amazing, safe to eat fried chicken as well as good non-gf options for my friends.

I love this place but double check double check double check. My table ordered a GF fried chicken and a non GF. They brought the food family style which tipped me off there may be an issue. Well that and the 4 biscuits which they do not have GF. In short they brought us non GF. Everyone was apologetic but geez, it was a very close call.

Best fried chicken I’ve had in Chicago, hands down! I’m from the south and it’s been a running joke that you can’t get good chicken this far north. Anyhow, realllllly loved the gluten free fried chicken (made in a gluten free fryer). Not a lot else on the menu is gluten free, but I was able to have the feta dip as an appetizer, the chicken for an entree, and I was offered ice cream from Pretty Cool which is a dedicated gluten free ice cream shop. Overall really good experience even with the limited gluten free selection.

I have ordered takeout from Split Rail twice in the past few months and my boyfriend and I were so impressed both times. He loves fried chicken and it can be difficult to find spots to eat that we can both enjoy. This is the place. I’ve never gotten sick here at all!

I have a wheat allergy - I’ve never had a reaction to any of the items marked gf

Good options of both healthy and not-so-healthy items; everything has always tasted great! It’s the only place I’ve had gf fried chicken. I like that they keep core menu items but switch up snacks and sides. And the house made hot sauce it fire!

I’ve always gotten delivery or done pick-up (mostly because of COVID). My deliveries are insanely fast and the quality of the to-go food has only been slightly impacted because I’m not dining in. (I can’t expect tater tots to arrive extra crispy if they’re being packaged for delivery.)

Loved being able to have GF fried chicken (!!!) and fries. However will agree with prior reviewer— everything is over-salted. I’d still return, but would just specify lightly-salted.

wow SO SALTY. this was a miss for us. food ranged from bizarrely overseasoned to 100% bland and nothing in between. the gf fried chicken was ok, it was fine, but not amazing. i don’t recommend the green beans and do recommend a palette cleanser like the cole slaw to eat in between extremely salty bites! many gf options, just not very tasty ones :(
