We never got our food. Waited over an hour after ordering. Went to the Gus’s in east Memphis the next day for lunch. It was fast and delicious. I recommend going to that location.

Ordered the two piece white fried chicken plate with greens and potato salad. Fantastic chicken, loved the greens and potato salad. So good. Then had chocolate chess pie for dessert which is a must.

This Gus's is located in the downstairs of a old house and is difficult to locate unless you have the address programmed into your GPS. Much of their business is takeout, which is probably good since the parking lot is tiny. The decor is them...More
