“The best chicken....”

Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken
Ranked #6 of 121 Restaurants in Collierville
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $18
Description: 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.

This place is amazing and they serve the best chicken I have ever tasted. If you go you will feel the same way. I will definitely return to this place the next time I am in town. Thanks to our server Brittany ask for her and she will take great care of you.

“Fantastic Chicken”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is not KFC, sorry Colonel, but Gus has you beat! This had to be the best fried chicken I've ever ate. This restaurant is located in an old home; I hear the Memphis location is better, which would be hard to believe. We traveled out of our way to get this fried chicken and we were not disappointed. The service was great and friendly. Be careful eating the chicken because it will come hot, none are precooked, so you have to wait a little for your food. We ordered fried pickles and jalapeño hush puppies, not sure what the draw is for fried pickles! Reasonable prices and down home atmosphere are here!!

“Memphis classic”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

In my humble, & shared opinion, Gus serves the best fried chicken and sides in Memphis and surrounding hinterlands. It stays busy. The chicken is served hot & spicy. No infrared heat lamps a the Gus WFFC. Simple surroundings and pleasant service in my experience.
