WORLD FAMOUS

Over 60 years ago in the small community of Mason, Tennessee, Napoleon “Na” Vanderbilt created something amazing – fried chicken that could unite a community. In an era of divisive racial attitudes the residents of Mason found that they could all – black and white – agree on how much they loved Na’s fried chicken.


As Gus’s continues to grow, we will honor these traditions and serve up some of the world’s best fried chicken. And, before you ask, no, you cannot have the recipe. As Gus once quipped, “This is a dead man’s recipe [and] I ain’t telling.”

I’ve tried a lot of fried chicken in my time and grew up with a grandma who made it from scratch on Sundays but oh my goodness, Gus’s fried chicken is some of the best I’ve ever had!!!

We waited about an hour to get a seat and it was well worth the wait! The chicken was crispy, hot, fresh, juicy, and flavorful. It had just enough kick to it. The mac n cheese and beans were also delicious. Our service was quick and friendly. Gus's is a must-try. I'd definitely make a trip back here.

Why go to any other chicken joint when you can order from Gus's? It's really delicious and their sides are great. After stuffing yourself, y'all can take a walk up and down Congress Ave.
