All right here about a week ago. ALL of their fried chicken and their fries are gluten-free. Coming from a celiac who hasn’t had “real” fried chicken in years, it was so satisfying to go here, have some bomb-ass food and not get sick

Fries are NO LONGER gluten free. They are now doing churros in the fryers previously reserved for fries.

Menu still states they are gluten free.

The food was great, the menu online identified certain things like the tender boxes has been gluten-free. The tablet in the store didn’t, so we were a little wary. The director of marketing Who confirmed that the classic Nashville hot and Kali loaded tender boxes are gluten-free, the Thai tinderbox is not due to the sauce. That they use separate fryers so even though they have churros on the menu those are done in a separate fryer from the chicken. He also said his brother has celiac and “enjoys their chicken quite often”. I provided them some feedback about some inconsistencies that caused doubt in the mind of a celiac, hopefully they’ll take some of the suggestions and make us feel more confident in eating their delicious food. I tried the Nashville hot taco on a corn tortilla, delicious. My celiac son had the chicken tender box and thought it was fantastic!

Apparently the fries DO NOT have a separate fryer from churros, only the chicken is Celiac Safe. :-(

First time eating here today, and I can’t wait to go back! The menu is specifically noted on GF items, and the employee at the register pulled out the allergen list from behind the counter so I could check on sauces and other menu items. Every fried item has its own dedicated fryer - one for fries, one for chicken tenders, and one for other items. I told the employee I was celiac, and they plated my food separate from my non-Celiac partner’s food.
