Cross-Country Trip V, Day 4: Memphis ~ Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken

Gus's Fried ChickenA friend tipped us off to Gus’s Fried Chicken, and fortunately it was within walking distance of both the Gibson factory and our hotel, so we went there for lunch.

It was quite tasty.

We sucked down sweet tea while we were waiting for our food (the service wasn’t the quickest – but granted, it was the lunch rush). We started with fried green tomatoes, which were served with ranch dressing – yummy!

For lunch we each had the “hot and spicy” chicken. The waitress assured me it was “flavorful” but not spicy. I would say it was somewhere in between those two things. It was spicy enough that I ate my second piece of chicken without the battered skin (but I’m a wimp when it comes to spicy food). The chicken itself was still quite tasty.

When we went back to hotel and told the doorman where we had been that day, he approved of our lunch choice, telling us that we had experienced true Memphis food. *smile*
