Nice new building, friendly staff. Chicken cooked to order. Fresh, juicy and hot! Its best to order family sizes when dining with 2 or more. No complaints!

While on a recent business trip to Bartlett, TN, a group of co-workers and I went here for lunch one day. What an experience! Although the place was packed, the service was fabulous and the fried chicken was delicious. I can't wait to go back!

Stopped into Gus's while on a business trip to Memphis. I had heard good things and it turns out, they were all true. I had the half-chicken, slaw and collards. Great flavor all around. Just the right amount of "kick" on the chicken. I ate...More
