Driving back from Nashville a few days ago a friend of mine convinced me to make a stop in Memphis. "There is this spot that has the best fried chicken, I swear it's worth it." I am not a fried chicken fanatic by any means, but if it has "world famous" on the business name I have to check it out. In the heart of Memphis, you can find a little whole in the wall kind of place, Gus's Fried Chicken. Every building around the restaurant is being developed, somehow this little itty bitty restaurant has been able to avoid selling out. After I tried the fried chicken I understood why there was a line out the door.

From the Fried Okra to the mac and cheese, it was all delicious. Nothing compares or comes close to the fried chicken I tried. Extra flaky, and a touch of spice  the fried chicken left me wondering if I could get some to go to share with my family when I got home. So now I am praying and hoping that there is a place in the area that has some delicious fried chicken. Do you know of a hidden gem in the area that has the best fried chicken? Tell us about the spot in the comments below!
