Chicken is outstanding, seasoned better than what you find in chain fast food restaurants. Sides are the normal you would find anywhere, coleslaw and french fries. Served on paper plates.

I'm so happy they have a Gus's fried chicken in Collierville. It's the best chicken you'll ever eat!! It's steaming hot and prepared fresh. The sides are very good but the chicken is the star! It's a must try for fried chicken lovers..

We love Gus' Fried Chicken. It is a town favorite! We go a lot of times after church. The restaurant in Collierville is located in a historic home south of the town square. Super nice people and service.

Love their chicken with a kick! The macaroni is to die for and you have to chase it down with their "rot your teeth" sweet tea. Family friendly so I'm not stressed when our two year old starts to entertain the other patrons. We love this place

Colleagues persuaded me to join and try the chicken from Gus's. Well i am not such a fan of fried stuff so i knew already it wasn't going to be a 'wow' experience for me. The chicken was good, the coleslaw was really yummy and the fries i believe were the best. We got the hush puppies, but i wasn't... More

Really had some expectations after hearing all the clamor about Gus's. The fried chicken was a seven on a scale of ten. Served with white bread brought down the whole experience. Not much effort there. Took a little while to get served after ordering. All in all, a very white bread experience.

The chicken was cooked to perfection--crispy skin, hot and juicy inside. But, the seasoning was just hot, not tasty. I much prefer Popeye's fried chicken. Gus' sides were all good--cold slaw, potato salad, beans.

This was my first visit to a Gus' s World Famous Fried Chicken. I don't usually eat fried chicken. Since I was visiting I had to try it. I found the chicken very flavorful, with just the right amount of spice. I tried fried pickles for the first time! Boy did I find out what I have been missing! If... More
