We go there for lunch, but at dinner time the parking lot is usually full so the wife drops me off and I pick up the order we called in. It is always quite hot, fresh, with a spicy garlicy flavor that can't be beat...More

This restaurant enjoys a very much undeserved reputation. It bewillders me that it has enjoyed such popularity. Everyone is entitled to their taste, and mine does not enjoy this preparation. Oily and too spicey.

After all the raves and hoopla, we expected more. This place is nothing really to brag about for us. We live in Texas and we go to a family style restaurant called Babe's and this is no comparison. Just plain old Fried Chicken in plain...More

Talk about feeling like you are home. This is in an old converted home. The staff makes you feel comfortable and knowledgeable of the menu. We tried several different things. Most of the chicken has a little spice to it so if you don't want...More

I know Gus’s is very popular and are franchising like crazy and they do fry a mean chicken. The food at this location can be a little slow coming out of the kitchen but that speaks to them cooking to order. The service we had...More

At Gus's we're all about the food. Gus's restaurants are low-key with a southern flare where you will hear soulful classics emitting from the jukebox. Many people call Gus's a "blues-infused southern eatery." At Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken we focus on the chicken. We begin by using quality chicken which is treated to our special preparation techniques before being marinated in our proprietary batter. Once it's properly fried to a crisp golden-brown, we serve it up with a plate full of southern inspired sides and a cold beer or sweet tea. The result? Customers line up at our door before we're even open.
