When you're on Washington Avenue in Houston, Texas and you have a craving for fried chicken, there is one place to visit.
I come here every once in a while when a family member visits, or if someone from out of town visits-- it's a great spot and you can't go wrong with the choice. There will be a wait if you go at peak lunch or dinner hours, but it definitely is worth the wait.
Food: The chicken is crispy and juicy and price point wise it hits the spot! The chicken breast is super tender and juicy as well, so they're definitely doing something right here. Expect to pay around $15 for a quality meal and I promise it won't disappoint. I always pair my chicken with a side of the fried okra or the mac n cheese, which are also great.
Service: Nothing out of the ordinary. I haven't had bad service whenever I go here. So, nothing to complain about.
Atmosphere: The atmosphere is always great and it's extremely hospitable.
Overall, the restaurant and the food are both great. This is hands down the best fried chicken I've had, and I will definitely come back for more. I'm salivating just thinking about it.....
Just so you know, Gus' isn't a single location. They have locations all over America. And there's a reason why.
