This was our first visit to the Little Rock location. The fried chicken and sweat tea were awesome, and CoCoa took great care of us! I highly recommend it!

Tried Gus's chicken and it was probably the best fried chicken I've had. The side of macaroni tasted like it was microwaveable but the chicken made up for it. The staff is welcoming.

Went here as my client highly recommended. It was walkable from Marriott, Capital and DoubleTree hotels. I had 3piece white meal. Both chicken breasts fried with a crunchy skin and moist meat. It had a great little kick. Coleslaw good. Beans, not very hot and ok. Small beer menu. Small quaint place. Chicken was cooked fresh, took about 15-20 minutes,... More

Wait staff was a bit preoccupied and service was slow, but the chicken was well worth the wait. Fried green tomatoes as appetizer. Iced tea, okra... Chicken rivals any in Nashville.

I haven't had much fried chicken in my life, but Gus's was great! There was very little grease, the bread stayed spot dry. The chicken had some kick to it, and was crispy and awesome.

I’m 68 years old and have never been a fan of fried chicken. Turns out that I just had never had really outstanding fried chicken. Tonight, I enjoyed Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken – I now actually believe it could be world famous. There is exactly one item on the menu; your only choice is white or dark meat. I... More

The food is always good. Love their chicken! In the past, the service has been kind of hit and miss. The servers were nice but just not very attentive. The last 2 times we visited our servers were very good. Our waitress last night,Bre, kept our drinks filled and checked on us to see if we needed anything. Very happy... More

I have eaten Gus's at Memphis, and enjoyed the different taste of Gus's fried chicken. When we learned there was a Gus's in downtown Little Rock, we stopped on a road trip down I-40. The location had little parking, due to a busy weekend. The restaurant was busy, and we had to wait a little bit, and finally got seated.... More

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
