Thank you to the shuttle driver at La Quinta for recommending this place for me and my grandson's. My grandchildren have always told me that I make the best food but in this case they had to break it to grandma that Gus's made the best fried chicken. Didn't hurt my feelings since I agreed with them! lol Don't forget... More

We lived near Memphis for a few years, and despite Memphis's claim to BBQ fame, I found that they really had the market cornered on Fried Chicken! It's my favorite food, and I liked a lot of different restaurants there that served it. Gus's is my favorite ever! If you don't mind the spice you'll probably love it too. But... More

We had Gus's Fried Chicken several years ago in Memphis, and we're delighted to find a branch in Little Rock. Stopped in for lunch between visits to the Little Rock attractions. You have to wait about 20 minutes for the cooked to order chicken, but it was worth it. My wife and I split a half chicken and 2 sides,... More

We arrived close to the time they opened so there was no wait. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. We ordered and the food served was hot and fresh. The cole slaw... More

Best fried chicken in the South, and friendly efficient service. Don't miss it! It was rather busy because we visited the weekend of the Little Rock marathon; however the servers were upbeat and friendly. And did I mention .. the chicken is AMAZING!!

Waited 40 min after order was placed and then received mediocre food. Chicken was over cooked and dry. Okra was just the same as other restaurant okra. Okra was so so. Will NEVER go back there!!!

I had read several reviews and they were mostly positive so I decided to give Gus's a try. My review is mixed. The chicken was a huge disappointment. I ordered the dark meat dinner and the thigh and leg were extremely tiny. I had never seen tiny pieces like that. They were also overcooked and dry. I did enjoy the... More

Gus's serves very good chicken. I am one of those people who does not like spicy food, and they did not have a non-spicy option. This did not take away from my enjoyment. The prices were very reasonable and it's right on the riverfront, downtown area.
