Long-running chain serving spicy fried chicken & comfort sides in a low-key setting.- Google
"The beans, coleslaw, and fried pickles were all fine."
"Best fried chicken I have had in quite a while."

It was okay. Nice serving size of food. So much a platter can be shared. Chicken has a kick and is really tasty! All other sides, well...I can do without, lol but They're friendly and the hostess and waiters/tress are tentative to their guest.

I just don't get all the hoopla about this place. First, I've never been to a fried chicken joint where they did not serve mashed potatoes, second, the fries I got were so salted that they were not edible, third, if you don't like your chicken on the hot and spicy side, then you are out of luck. For your bread they do not serve rolls or biscuits, but rather what appears to be a slice of white wonder bread. They sure are pricey for what you get......I just thought the chicken was ok, nothing spectacular.

We went to Memphis anticipating some solid barbecue, but it was suggested we hit Gus' while in town. I'll admit, I wasn't overly excited about the prospect of fried chicken, but I sure am glad we went. Gus's Chicken is perfect, crisp golden-brown on the outside, moist and succulent on the inside, and salted and seasoned with just enough cayenne pepper to let you know it's there.

Usually a fan of "spicy" this was way too much for me. It even burned my lips. My friend and I both ordered the same thing and his was not nearly as spicy. Once I gave up on the breading and just ate the chicken, it was fabulously tender and juicy. I just wonder if someone had an accident with the spices. Service was great, atmosphere great, and the price was reasonable. I definitely want to try it again. Hopefully someone was just having an "off" day. And did I mention this was Valentine's Day? Spice-burned lips on Valentines Day-not a good time. Lol

I have to give this place a three. Cause, the chicken was salty. I didn't taste any other seasoning. Ordered ahead of time, so it didn't take long. Small dining area, but good customer service.
