Hit Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken the other day and have to agree it’s good not great.
We started with the fried green tomatoes, which may have been the highlight of the meal for me.
My three pieces of dark-meat chicken were tender and freshly fried but a little on the small side. I would definitely order three pieces minimum if you have a healthy appetite. I liked that the crisp coating was fairly light but there was a sleight “shatter batter” issue with one of my pieces.
I was pushing for us to order just chicken, but others wanted plates, so I got one too. I actually enjoyed my baked beans and cole slaw, but I have a weakness for (some) mass produced sides, which these definitely were.
I think @TheCookie nailed with the “tasty but not crave worthy” comment. It’s certainly not on the level of Howlin’ Ray’s.
