Great overall place but I got glutened here. The waitress informed me I could get the Nashville hot chicken gluten free and they served me the wrong food. I know this for a fact because I ordered it again (it tasted so good lol) and it came out very different. It’s a shame they got rid of gluten free fried chicken here and it is now less safe for celiacs.

There are a fair amount of menu items that are either naturally gluten-free or can be modified to be so. The food is very good as well

Ask for allergy menu. Brisket is marked as “can be modified without gluten” because the brisket plates are served with Texas toast.

They have dedicated dryers. Daughter was able to get gluten free fish and chips with French fries! Staff member was unsure about some items but after checking with kitchen was able to answer all questions for us.

I am impressed. They have an allergy menu and dedicated fryer for gluten free food. I tried the gluten free fried fish basket and it was delicious. They have gluten desserts, but I was so full I could not eat another bite.

They had a full allergen menu not just for gluten but other common allergens as well! They have a dedicated fryer so I was able to get wings and fries, both of which were honestly some of the best I’ve had in my life. The person who brought out my food (a manager, possibly?) knew it was gluten free without me saying anything. Very accommodating overall.
