World Famous Fried Chicken- Gus's

Memphis is known for it BBQ but there is more to the city than just BBQ.

I was watching a food network show about the best fried chicken, they went all over the place and talked about the science behind the best fried chicken.
And guess where they landed for the best fried chicken drum roll please (all though its pretty obvious)
Memphis TN, to Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken. They landed right here in Memphis for the best friend chicken.

Gus's World Famous fried chicken is tender, juicy, spicy, hot, crispy, delicious, spicy, tender, crunchy, moist, tender, fried, killer, hot, moist, crispy,divine, deliciously crunchy, straight from the fryer to your mouth.
It is soaked in buttermilk and fried to perfection.  It also depends on the location for a bit on some of the chicken-  downtown's is a little bit spicier but take a long time;East Memphis Gus's is a lot faster and a little less spicy but still great. The one way out in Collierville servers some catfish that supposed to be just as good as the chicken! I tried Southaven's but it was just not as good, they had not been open long and I have not been back.

Now for a little history on Gus's fried chicken, so it all started in one of the little towns out side of  Memphis and old Gus started to make fried chicken and sell it out his back door, and so it eventually turned in to  Gus's World Famous fried chicken and then Gus made a new location in downtown Memphis and the rest is history.

So take my advice when you come to Memphis for BBQ, save some room for the best fried chicken in the world. Gus's!
