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!

The fried chicken was amazing; the chicken was cook to order, it was hot and good. Seasoned well, not salty. My sides were the baked beans, which were not that good; and the greens, which were okay. I also had the chicken tenders which were good.

When we received our chicken the white meat was extremely dry. The seasoning very spicy and it was not a crunchy style chicken that we were yearning for. It looked beautiful but we did not like it at all. They changed it the white meat and it again was dry. We bought the fried green tomatoes and they were excellent. Would not recommend if you are looking for southern type chicken.

I would recommend using Yelp to get on the seating list prior to going. The food is good but not the greatest.
