After six other successful locations, Gus’s Fried Chicken has opened its first and only Texas location in Downtown Austin! With a simple menu that consists of all of the southern culinary staples, Gus’s had a steady flow of customers on its opening day.

The chicken manages to be perfectly crispy and spicy on the outside, but succulent on the inside with great flavor all around. The menu is home to many sides, including a deliciously creamy macaroni and cheese, seasoned french fries, slaw, baked beans and more. A main reason to return to Gus’s would be the phenomenal fried green tomato appetizer. Served with ranch, the perfectly crispy fried tomatoes offer a full flavor worthy of a bit of travel. Not to be disregarded, the pie is a must. We tried both the chess and pecan pies and were far from unhappy with these sweet and tasty country desserts.

That being said, we are extremely thankful for Gus’s arrival to the Austin area and have great faith in the restaurants ability to stay strong for years to come.

Gus’s is available at 117 San Jacinto, Austin, Texas 78701. Bring your appetite!
