A must any time we’re in Little Rock. The chicken is amazing! They will serve you a 40oz beer in a brown paper bag. Beer and Chicken, you can’t go wrong! I recommend the mac and cheese too. Staff is great and the decor is...More

I’m not a big fried chicken guy, so when I find truly good fried chicken that keeps me coming back, it must be good! I also love their collard greens. It doesn’t qualify as “hot chicken” to me, but a bit of hot sauce fixes...More

Driving thru Little Rock and decided to try Gus’s fried chicken. Wife had waffle and chicken while I had chicken tenders w/baked beans and mac’n’cheese. Everything was great - service was outstanding and the chicken was great (just the right seasoning of heat)

Best chicken I have eaten. Each time a treat. A bit of a dive feeling but if you roll with it, it adds to the experience.

The chicken was above average (tenders were best) and the sides were slightly above average (Mac & cheese / Baked beans). The fried pickle spears were delicious. We went later in the evening and the bar next door was playing music so loud we could...More

Felt like my old grandma just cooked me a Sunday dinner. It is very very good, on the spicy side, but still very good. And the pecan pie with ice cream is hard to pass up!

This fried chicken is crispy and seasoned with the right amount of kick, did I mention it's so juicy. The mac & cheese is creamy and so good. The baked beans are a must have to top off the meal.
