A toss-up between Gibson’s in the Gold Coast and Gus’s Fried Chicken in the West Loop. – Zach Lavine
Well people, the hype is 100% real when it to Gus’s Fried Chicken. We headed over to the Memphis staple which opened it’s doors in Chicago earlier this year & boy did we leave happy. Happy & completely stuffed, as you should be when leaving Gus’s. Everything from the sides to staples we’re better than we could have ever expected.
Gus’s has arrived and it’s the real deal… it’s a tantalizing flavor that you’ll not find anywhere else in Chicago.
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.
Taste of Chicago, the world’s largest free food festival, is looking good for 2016 with 69 of the city’s most exciting restaurants lining up to participate in the 36th Annual culinary celebration.

Gus’s is a place for everyone
Welcome to Chicago, delicious chicken.
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.”
