GF fried chicken and fried chicken salads along with sandos (lettuce wrap). Chicken is moist and crunchy. Clean and tasty fast food with good flavor and value.

Fries are contaminated but plenty of other good sides. Coleslaw was solid.

Other favorite fried chicken is Korean fried chicken PAPA’S in K-Town but Starbird is a great option if in the Beverly Grove area.

I went to this location less than a month ago and had the chicken tenders and fries combo. I was assured it was all gluten free, and I did not get sick. I went today and was told that there is actually cross contamination for the fries, as they are fried in the same fryer as the churros. There seems to be confusion on what is actually safe, but would recommend double checking with the location before eating the fries. Bummer, but would still go back for the chicken tenders

Guys this place is legit. Fully gf menu. The tenders were just that. Tender, juicy, and delicious. Lots of sauces. Spicy or not. Cheap and yummy. I got 3 tenders with half fries half Cole slaw. The drinks are really good too. A bit sweet but I just added a little water. Go. Just go.

Dedicated fryer, amazing flavors. Seriously, idk where else you can get so many great flavors of fried chicken. The Nashville flavor is top notch. Even my gluten eating friends love it.

Fried chicken is my favorite food and I’ve tried all gf fried chicken in LA and at home, and I’m not kidding when I tell you this is the best I’ve ever had. Basically it’s a gf raising canes. The tenders, nuggets, fries, and slaw are celiac safe. Manager said all chicken and fries are in dedicated fryers. They have allergen menu too which tell you which sauces are gf

Super crispy on the outside and very moist on the inside. All the employees were so friendly and helpful. The chicken is in its own fryer. Fries are not celiac safe as they are fried in the same one as their churros. The slaw is yummy and has a little sweetness to it. As long as I stay feeling good, I would definitely come back again.

I really like their chicken and the chicken salad but they do not have a dedicated fryer and fry their French fries with other things containing gluten so if you are sensitive to cross contamination do not get the fries. I have not had a reaction to the chicken.

Beautiful gf fried chicken. The fries and tots are dedicated gluten free, and are incredible. Still sad they removed the tacos, but fried chicken meals are still enough to satisfy me! (Warning: Gardenbird is NOT gluten free)

As others stated, fries are now cooked with churros. I asked for them to do my fries in the fryer the chicken goes in to avoid cross contamination and they agreed so you can ask them to accommodate but be careful with cross contamination here

Came here because they advertise gluten free fried chicken.

I asked the staff about the menu as I noticed that their chicken wings aren't marked as gluten free nor are their churros, but their chicken nuggets, tenders and fries are marked as gluten free. I have Celiac and depend on accurate information to make safe choices when eating as I can consume NO gluten whatsoever. Not even a crumb.

The staff completely struggled through answering if they used a shared fryer or not. The fries are cooked in a shared fryer with churros. Cooking fries in the same fryer with the oil that has been used to cook churros is like claiming that cooking pasta in water used to boil shellfish is safe for people with a shellfish allergy. The staff member said if he had Celiac he wouldn't risk it.

This same staff member said that they use a shared fryer but the chefs do something to make it gluten free, which is simply not possible unless they're changing the oil and scrubbing down the fryer between orders, which isn't a thing.

Another staff member chimed in saying that they use a shared fryer for the wings and the tenders, but that it's okay because they cook the wings in the morning first. What? Not only would that guarantee that the oil is contaminated, they're precooking wings?

Either this restaurant is falsely advertising gluten free items (people who can't consume aren't "friendly" to gluten) putting people who need to eat gluten free for medical reasons at serious risk of injury, or this restaurant has completely failed in training their staff how to explain their product and their safety protocols to customers.

Either way, 1 star.
