Despite all of the upscale eateries and food trucks located downtown, there’s actually pretty amazing fried chicken between 15th Street and Ceasar Chavez Blvd.  Memphis based Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken may not technically be a local spot, but I dare you to eat it without calling it one of the best fried chicken joints in town.


Each piece of chicken is fried to a golden crisp, all while staying perfectly moist and juicy inside with a slight spicy kick to it.  Every plate comes with their standard side of beans, coleslaw and white bread just as does in it’s Tennessee flagship.
