Gus Fried Chicken Sign

Now if you want really fantastic fried chicken there is only one correct answer: Gus’s Fried Chicken. In late 2015, they opened a franchise in Chicago, but it pales in comparison to the original Memphis location. It has an unbelievable spice to it and is plump and moist and delicious in the way really great fried chicken can be. That is fried chicken worth talking about and worth the effort to go to if you ever happen to be in Memphis.

Sam Faye shows Gus’s some love as well, calling it “legit.” Fried pickles are “great” but the fried green tomatoes are even better. The chicken has “crispy skin and has a cayenne kick, which is noticeable but not overwhelming.” Regardless of whether or not you enjoy a bit of spice in your chicken, Faye says “there’s no denying it’s good.”
