Okay, my old roommate and I came to this location on a whim. We were driving through to a music festival and needed some good eats before we got to our campsite. I urbanspooned places and Gus' came up. As a vegetarian at the time, I was not about it. But I realized that sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do to help your friends out.
So we went. And then my diet changed forever. I was pressured into just trying "one bite" because it is, "the best chicken you'll ever put in your mouth." That's all I had on our first trip and some fried pickles. I started craving Gus' chicken so much that I broke my long stint of vegetarianism, demanded we go back, and mowed through some chicken.
Gus' is now on our list of places we HAVE to stop at when we're driving through Memphis. Period.
