Awesome food! I was a little nervous at first because nothing was labeled on the menu but I felt comfortable after speaking with the staff before ordering. All the chicken is naturally fried in gluten free flour but make sure you ask for a gluten free waffle.
I would not Go there again! Something about my gluten free Waffel and Chicken was not gluten free. When i asked If the sauces they offer to the Chicken is gluten free, the women had to look on her Smartphone... I took the bbq Sauce, she told me gf. I had my typical symptoms, when i ate half of the Dinner... Maybe it was the wrong Sauce or they were not knowledgeable Cross contamtion, i don't know.
This is a tough one. The food is definitely delicious, and it’s truly a treat to find GF fried chicken (they also have GF waffles upon request, and the poutine is also GF). On the downside, it feels like a typical fast food joint. Service is disinterested (they were annoyed when we needed an error corrected in our order), there is very little seating available, and the basement washrooms are super sketchy and VERY dirty (no toilet paper, flooded toilets, etc). Take the food to go and you’ll be very pleased!
I was worried the whole time eating here that it wasn't gluten free because it tasted SO good! It was definitely gluten free AND delicious which was a really nice change. I had the Great White North with the gluten free waffle. Everything about it was perfect. It's a small restaurant with not a lot of space to sit but 100% worth going to if you like deep fried chicken and delicious food!
FOOD: 100% INCREDIBLE - so good my husband a gluten eater, couldn't even taste the difference! The gluten free waffles were fluffy, and a soft, chewy, but with a hint of crunch texture. Fries were on point - hand cut and crispy! Loved the tato salad, mayo based with onions and I think capers, and the slaw was vinegar based. I LOVED the fact that EVERYTHING here was gluten free EXCEPT the mac salad and a gluten waffle BUT the french fries and chicken are 100% gluten free and have dedicated fryers ! WOOT WOOT ! Safe service, clean establishment and they asked about an allergy right away. I am sensitive to pepper, so for me, the fries and batter for the chicken was a bit "potent" but so flavorful I did not mind the pepper, and it was not overpowering. I ordered the Great White North and loved that I had THREE tenders to work with - to eat as fried chicken with ketchup (since it's rare to get fried GF chicken) and the rest with my waffles with the REGULAR maple syrup. I did NOT get the buttered maple or ranch on my entree - personal preference! The waffle DID has a small amount of butter in it - and the counter staff even knew this when I said no lactose - VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE COUNTER STAFF! AWESOME SERVICE BEFORE I EVEN ENTERED ! Traveling with Celiac Disease can be tough, and it becomes more difficult when I need to try my best to avoid lactose as well - so I need to do A LOT of research before I enter an establishment so I can feel safe, at ease, and not have to ask a million questions upon arriving - JOSH ANSWERED FIVE EMAILS FROM ME BEFORE I WAS EVEN A PATRON I have Celiac Disease, as well as severe Irritable Bowel Syndrome - I do NOT eat gluten, and avoid lactose as much as I can - he answered multiple questions with enthusiasm and was even able to provide me with the amount of butter used in the waffle - which was minimal so I felt comfortable eating it (I do not have a lactose allergy, rather an intolerance). He was SO helpful - HIGH SUGGEST A VISIT HERE FOR A SAFE AND TASTY CELIAC TREAT <3
Had chicken (2 10 piece buckets) fries and coleslaw. Gluten free waffles were great. Maple butter and BBQ (dirty) sauce gf and excellent. Chicken was fantastic - light, crispy and not greasy. Pass on the coleslaw -Tiny and flavourless. Go for the fries!! Kensington tiny location so we got it to go.
I was very excited when I found this restaurant reviewed here and headed up there today. I'm from England and we so few fully GF fast foods available. I had chicken and chips and a waffle, the later I've never eaten before because you just can't get it in the uk. It was all great. Definitely go there!
I was very nervous to eat here because it's a tiny hole in the wall of a place. Well, everything is GF except the pasta salad and the waffles (tho they do have gf waddles prepared in a separate area). I'm extremely sensitive to cross contamination but ate the (unbelievable) fried chicken with no issue. Two non celiacs with me found the chicken crispy and so delicious as well.
