    DELICIOUS!!! My son with celiac disease had no problems at all. When we ordered his waffle, The gentleman asked if it was an allergy and I said it was celiac disease, so he wrote "severe" on his order.

    I chose the gluten free chicken and waffles. The staff asks you if you are choosing gluten free due to allergy or preference. If you need gluten free due to allergy (as I do), they prepare the waffles separately. It takes a bit longer for the GF orders to be cooked but well worth the wait. The GF chicken batter was crispy and tasted like "real" KFC chicken. I'm a sensitive Celiac and had no reaction.

    My son has celiac disease. We ate there twice for breakfast recently. In light of prior reviews we went on the earlier side and explained the importance of being careful about cross contamination. They used their separately placed dedicated GF waffle maker and were careful about cross contamination and both outings were successful. Perfect place for a kid with celiac disease who cannot always participate in the treats others are having. He loved it.

    Dedicated waffle iron. Sweet and savory options are all gf including the veggie burger and fried chicken. They can make sandwiches with the waffles and open face grilled cheese.

    We've eaten here twice without issue. I make sure to give an impassioned speech when ordering that my daughter has Celiac and under no circumstances can her waffle or sides come in contact with any gluten as she will get violently ill. I've been lucky enough to have wait staff that was very understanding, and even went over and showed me the separate waffle maker that is away from the others specifically for the gluten free waffles. I gave them five stars because they've been really good with us thus far, but I can see where someone could potentially get glutened; they do get very busy. I'd advise anyone with Celiac to proceed with caution here.

    I don't even want to give a star...it was delicious but it wasn't because after I left I was incredible pain I told them it was a gluten allergy when I got the waffle and have been sick now for about 14 hours which if it was just cross contamination it would have been like 10 hours so I'm guessing they put some gluten into the waffle never going back again worst gluten attack in forever

    The gf waffles are great!! A quick warning though.... You must explicitly state in great detail that you are not just on the trendy gluten free diet for fun. Be sure to specify that you are allergic and need all of the equipment to be gf as well. Call ahead to make sure the gf grill is on if you want a shorter wait. When they brought my waffle out, I asked if it was all completely gluten free. The guy asked "Why? Are you celiacs?" I told him I was and he replied, "Oh, we'll make you a new one." It was delicious and I did not get glutened, but the whole experience was completely new to me.
