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.

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
