What makes Gus’s chicken so perfect? It starts with the skin, which is deep-fried to the color of bourbon while remaining brittle, with the crunch of an eggshell. Then lurking below that crunch is a subterranean flesh so moist and tender that it almost defies reality. While the textural interplays are superb, the flavors are even better, as a bold saline note underlines all that amiable spice.

I took a bite. The skin wasn't thick and crisp but thin, salty and a delayed spicy. It was delicious. I ordered a beer and washed it down. Miller Lite sometimes works just perfect for such occasions.
