  • Great chicken. Spicy like I like it. Sides are great too. Only complaint is its twice as pricy as Harold's but not better. In fact I'd say Harold's actually is better. Gus's is still great too though.
  • Omg...just eat as much as you can, seriously
  • This was some surprisingly delicious fried chicken - hint of spicy. Prices were pretty reasonable. This seems like a good place to mow down some fried chicken, drink beers, and watch the game.
  • Only try it if you like really spicy chicken... Too hot for me... But moist and fried perfectly.
  • Half chicken plate will do you right.
  • Finally a little bit of Memphis in Chicago!
  • The BEST #friedchicken in #fultonmarket. Hot, crispy and juicy, with a touch of spice. Real down-home feel. Great homemade sides (the potato salad and cole slaw were awesome). We will be back soon.
  • Everything is good here!
  • The Cajun spice rub makes the wings unique. The macaroni was particularly creamy and obviously delicious. Cant really go wrong.
  • Excellent Chicken and exceptional sides
  • Ever get that craving for Fried Chicken? I do. And if you do-check out this Fulton Market offering. Staff is great, Food is awesome and you will return for more. It's really Good Fried Chicken!
  • Its OK they still have to work on it but for the money its not so bad
  • A slow and monotonous morning can put anyone in a funk. Thats when you need to spice up your day with a trip to Guss.
  • This chicken is spicy! Just a warning if you're not into that kind of thing. The breading is perfectly crisp, and the meat is moist & flavorful. The coleslaw was delicious.
  • If you had been here on more then one occasion: you all should try the original Gus's World Famous Chicken Shack in Memphis, TN Sometime in the near future!
  • One best fried chickens spots I have been to in awhile, the bartender also makes a great old fashion you won't be disappointed
  • 3 piece white, with 2 sides, for $15.46.
  • Great fried chicken and no wait like next door....
  • Great to see Gus's finally open in Chicago and the West Loop is the perfect location. Awesome hot chicken and southern cuisine! Take your cup home as a souvenir.
  • Great bartender named Q! Good food, good selection of beer/wine/cocktails
