Gus's is one of my favorite restaurants. The chicken is spicy, no other option. I don't care for spicy food. So why is Gus's one of my favs you ask?.... The Sides !!!! The Mac n cheese, slaw, beans are THE BEST. Their fried pies...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.

Was in the area and needed to grab a quick lunch. Saw there was a Gus's nearby and headed straight there. I was confused at first and thought that I missed it as I have been to multiple locations but never one that was in...More

Got great chicken and sides but this place lacks the one-of-a-kind atmosphere of the original Gus's. Service was fantastic.

OMG! I love Gus' Chicken. I was biased to the orginial im Downtown Memphis... However, the Collierville location is just a scrumptous!!! I always tell people you pay for quality and quality is exactly what you will get at this location!

This food definitely did not live up to it's reputation. The chicken was very dry and salty. If it wasn't for the salt, it would have no taste at all. Totally disappointing

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.
