Stopped here bc of the reviews. Ordered the GF salt and pepper double crunch wings and the Korean Hot fries. Both were delicious. Even my fiance who does not eat GF loved the wings! The crunch was so good!!!! I asked they change their gloves and the bartender relayed the message. I did not get sick that night or the next day. This is the first vacation I didn’t feel crappy

The menu is marked with GF items, or items which can be adapted. This is by far the best meal I had in New Orleans. My husband and I shared the chicken wings, tacos and loaded fries. They were the crispiest wings I can ever remember, fries were so tasty and the tacos were just amazing. They were hot but so good. I will miss this place so much

The staff asked if it was celiac or a preference and when I said celiac, he made sure to tell them and so they’d use the separate fryer. I got the salt n pepper wings and fries. Delicious! And no reaction.

I got the fries and wings that were marked gluten free and told them about my allergies. They seemed slightly knowledgeable but my NIMA sensor detected wheat. They said that the dedicated fryer must have been contaminated and took the food off the check since I couldn’t eat it. Great service, bad safety

I was starving and pulled up this app so decided to try this place. There was an event going on so the place was packed, felt a little silly ordering food lol, but I tried the hot chicken and a cider. It was pretty good, a little bland for New Orleans but not bad. I didn’t get sick. I really wish it wasn’t as packed as it was, I think I would have enjoyed myself more. Maybe next time!

They have a lot of GF options. I had the Louisiana hot chicken and it was chicken strips which were insanely crunchy but I thought it was pretty bland overall (my husband liked it though, so maybe just not enough salt for my tastes). The pickled greens on the plate were good though and the drink I had was good. FYI gluten free items are marked on their order out menu but not their regular, so may need to compare the two or ask questions.

Unbelievable experience! Almost everything is or can be modified to be GF and they have a dedicated fryer. Bonus, the cocktails are delicious! Very friendly service too! Heads up, this is not a traditional restaurant, more like a bar but we were able to bring our son in for lunch as long as we didn’t sit at the bar. 10/10 recommend!

“Crispy Fried Chicken Wings, Foodgasm” Dedicated Fryer!! Although the menu does not list gluten free options there were only two items that were not GF, the bar tender was able to point them out to me. I accidentally ordered one of the gluten items, the chef himself came out and let me know that one isn’t safe, they refunded me and I was able to choose a different item. The wings literally left me dumbfounded by how delicious they were. The courtyard patio was a really cool vibe as well.

This place was incredible. Almost everything was gluten free (including gluten free fryer), food was super tasty and affordable, great vibes, good cocktails, open late (and serving the full menu til they close), has a beautiful outdoor courtyard, and right in the middle of the action. Couldn’t have been better. I got the tacos and the wings and both were super good. I’m also dairy free and could get basically everything on the menu.

I had just gotten into town and was starving, so pulled up the app and this was one of the first on the list, I scanned the reviews and thought wings!! Yes!! So we went. The food was good, but was *different*. These aren’t your typical Buffalo wing and loaded fries. If I had looked at the menu first I would have kept looking, just not really my cup of tea.

Highly recommend, cannot say enough good things. The food was amazing, and so were the drinks. It was the perfect start to our trip in NOLA. Would just keep in mind it is a smaller place and doesn’t take reservations so be prepared to wait, but promise it’s worth it!! Had the tacos and the shrimp.

This place is not to be missed. Virtually the entire menu *is* gluten free, they don’t have a separate menu bc very few things aren’t gf. We had french fries, fried chicken (over grits with greens) and brussel sprouts side - so flavorful. This place is a gf foodie’s dream. Very reasonable for the quality, this chef (Josh) is a rising star - a genius in the kitchen. And the staff is super nice and welcoming. Loved the whole atmosphere. Side note - yes, dedicated gf frier. Owner is celiac so this is a highly conscientious place.
