Eating Fried Chicken at Gus's Mar 22, 2008
Ok this is really off the beaten path. The original Gus's is located in Mason, TN in a wide spot in the road. The building is a non descriptive newly renovated building. The sign is nothing to write home about, but the Chicken there is the best that I have ever had. They fry the chicken only after you order it. The spices are a secret that Gus I think took to the grave. He died in 2007.

We get there and this old black women comes over to get our drink order. I told her that I wanted a hamburger to lighten up the mood. We all laughed. We got the 20 pieces of chicken with fixens. That is the only thing they have on the menu. Chicken.

It comes out steaming hot as it is fried in 400 degree oil to keep the juices in. The plastic fork that they give you does not hold up to the use that it gets when tearing into a steamy piece of chicken.

It is a ways away from the airport, but there should be a shuttle service from Little Rock Airport out to Mason, TN, to get this Chicken. I will be back.
