Crispy. Tender. Juicy. Moist. Flavorful. Those are characteristics that I look for in a good fried chicken. Gus's Fried chicken was able to hit on all points. It is so delectable, that chicken juices fly out of the chicken with each bite (literally, cause it happened to me where the juices landed on my friend).
Gus's Fried Chicken comes from Tennessee. It started off as chicken being sold from a tavern to having expanded to various locations throughout the Midwest and now the West Coast. The Burbank location in California is fairly large and was once a sushi joint that I used to frequent. There were plaid tablecloths, various photos, and simplicity at its best.
The chicken is fried to perfection. It is juicy and has a bit of a kick to it the way Nashville fried chicken should be. It is simply delicious and the pics below doesn't do it justice.
|MAC AND CHEESE ($2.90-SIDE ORDER): This was just ok for me. The small is pretty small, but if you order the plate, it was just enough. It wasn't creamy nor was the pasta al dente. It was pretty bland and I felt it needed seasoning.
