This was my 1st visit to Gus's World Famous Fired Chicken at this location. The chicken was very good. It was a great alternative to the typical greasy fried chicken that is often found in Memphis. The chicken tasted as if it was " Broasted"...More

The service was good. The wait time and food prep time was great. The facility was new and clean. The food was okay nothing special. I prefer Popeyes. The chicken was a bit spicy even the kids tenders so beware of taking young children.

Really great fried chicken. I don't think I've ever had better. Fried green tomatoes were ok. This location is a new restaurant with easy parking. Friendly staff and clean tables.

I like their chicken though it wont appeal to everyone. It is not as moist or crispy as some but I personally like the consistency and the seasoning. The fried okra was also quite good and prices reasonable for portions.
