Unique Experience

After hearing many good comments regarding Gus' Fried Chicken we had to try it. Yes, the food was very good but I was disappointed in their giving us plastic utensils to eat with. The place could use some sprucing up also.

has to be this location. In all of my experiences I have never had less than at 30 min wait at Gus's UNTIL I discovered this location.. It is tucked away in a quaint little house just off of Colliersville's Town Square. In and out and headed back to Nashville in no time. Gus's chicken can't be beat, it is... More

Definitely the best fried chicken I have ever had. All my out of town relatives and friends ask for it when they visit. I only wish they had something mild for kids.

Great fried chicken, not overly spicy, just enough to bring out the flavor. Wonderful side item also.

Every time I visit the Memphis, TN area, I make sure to visit a Gus' World Famous Fried Chicken location. I ate dinner there two nights in the same week in Feb. 2015. Outstanding food and service. The chicken is deep-fried, but coated in a spicy seasoned batter. The meat is tender and delicious. I visited the location in Collierville,... More

Gus's isn't called "world famous" for nothing. I think it's the best chicken i've ever had. It has a unique spicy flavor that may not sit well with others but I love it. I've carried it to family gatherings in Arkansas and East Tennessee and received rave reviews. Good stuff!

I like the atmosphere of this fried chicken restaurant- so warm and homey. We started off with the bacon, jalapeno fritters which were good but a bit oily and in the need of a few more jalapenos to satisfy our southwestern taste buds( the reason for the 4 instead of 5 star). However, there was no lack of spiciness when... More

The poor attitude of the workers is an indication of poor management policies in our case. We wanted to place a small order (20 pieces) to pick up for Christmas Eve. We suspected they would be closing early, so we wanted to place the order as late as possible to keep it warm. Simple concept we thought. We called the... More

Although from Texas and no stranger to spicy food, the chicken was a bit too spicy for my taste. Moist and well cooked, the spice mostly on the skin. Delicious sweet tea, friendly staff, cute place.

This fried chicken is awesome and I mean awesome. If you are a fried chicken fan, this is not to be missed. Did I mention this chicken is awesome?
