Venue Info

The sign says "world-famous" and it's no exaggeration. Gus' secret recipe of crispy, spicy, juicy fried chicken is served on Styrofoam plates with beans, slaw, and Wonder Bread, of course. Since the 1950s, locals and tourists have been lining up and waiting patiently for its made-to-order fried chicken. You can get it at seven locations in four states, but the Front St location is the best-known.
