This is some of the best fried chicken I have ever eaten. If there's a line (and usually there is), order yourself a beer and hang outside. You'll work up a huge appetite!

Oh baby southern fried chicken
Best fried chicken in TN. Had one of the meatiest chicken breasts I've ever seen. Fried Green Tomatoes and a sweet tea are a must, too!
The chicken's a little spicy so get some of their awesome sweet iced tea to wash it down.

Love the three piece dark! I substitute potato salad for the slaw! Sweet tea is truly the Southern House Wine!

Returning customer:) Gus's is one of my favorite places to eat. So today I am ordering a three piece wing platter which comes with beans and slaw.
