Spicy fried chicken & Southern sides (fried pickles, mac ’n’ cheese) in a down-home restaurant.- Google
"The beans, coleslaw, and fried pickles were all fine."
"Best fried chicken I have had in quite a while."

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.

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.

Best fried chicken I have had in quite a while. Juicy with deep flavor, and the batter was evenly and deliciously seasoned. The beans, coleslaw, and fried pickles were all fine. The fried cherry pie a la mode was thoroughly mediocre; skip dessert rather than letting it bring down your Gus experience.

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
