Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken is the top bird in MSN's "America's 50 Best Fried Chicken Spots.” Visitors and Memphis locals flock to Gus’s, where the special of the day is always chicken. Having already been featured in GQ Magazine, Serious Eats, Where the Locals Eat and on multiple TV shows, this award is just the latest feather in their cap. 

"The golden-brown crust on the outside locks in the juicy exterior, just as it should, and the seasoning of salt and cayenne shines through. So kick back at a gingham tablecloth-covered table, listen to the tunes playing from the jukebox, and await the arrival of a meal well worth it."

Gus’s has three locations in Memphis – Downtown, East Memphis and on Germantown Parkway. Click here to see the full list of America’s best fried chicken spots on MSN
