  • 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!
  • 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 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.
  • 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
  • This is a franchise of the original out of Memphis. Great if you are missing your Memphis fix.
  • Didn't like the french fries - not crispy enough for me. But their chickens amazing - very crispy on the outside and juicy inside with a hint of spicy (kinda salty)
  • The fried chicken batter has a little heat in it
  • Awesome! Saw Los Crudos and MK-ULTRA.
  • Very good Nashville hot, and the drinks aren't shabby, either
  • Everything was great!!
  • Great service, service staff thats on top of what Gus' is all about. They brag in all the right ways.And the Fried Chicken? Awesome!
