Been to this location several times and consistently received good food and service. There may be a slight wait for the food, but the fried chicken comes to your table fresh and hot. The servers are very friendly and eager to please. Parking may be...More

Hands down, period! I️ LOVE GUS’ CHICKEN!!! Always crispy outside, tender inside. Spicy, and flavorful! The fried okra & coleslaw are excellent as well.

I can’t think of many things better than sitting down to Gus’s chicken and listening to B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughn in the background. Today my wife took a leap of faith and tried the catfish, hushpuppies, slaw, and baked beans. I had chicken...More

Very tasty fried chicken. Crispy juicy inside and a spiced up breading . Seems they may coat in buttermilk as well. Good service.

I have eaten at the Deep South's other famous fried chicken restaurant, Willie Mae' in New Orleans, and while Willie Mae's is great, Gus's is a little bit better. If you love fried chicken, you can' miss Gus's.

Great chicken with a little heat. I loved it, and the cole slaw is sweet and perfect with the chicken.

I've heard and read much about this chain of restaurants so I was expecting to really enjoy the food. Chicken was below average and served on disposable plates and utensils. I would have enjoyed a visit to KFC, Popeyes, or Zaxby's more.

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.
