For regular fried chicken I hear Gus' in Memphis is one of the best. They have a location in Nashville now so I'll have to try it.

Gus is good - I recommend it (Nippers Corner). I need to get to Princes soon.
I had lunch at Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken today. That's some fine fried chicken! This may very well be the best restaurant fried chicken I've had.

Hi touchton, if you're from Tennessee and say it's great, well I'll bet it is.

Is the place an all you can eat restaurant? What was served with the fried chicken?

It's not all you can eat. You can order pieces or tenders. Sides are the normal you'd see in the south, Mac n cheese, baked beans, cole slaw, fries, etc. take your cholesterol med and come on down!

I had the 3 piece white dinner. It came with baked beans and cole slaw. The cole slaw is mayo based, but not swimming in mayo. There were 2 breast pieces and a wing. The sides were good, but the chicken was great.

I can't see ordering tenders at a place like this. I'm sure they're good, but I grew up eating chicken off the bone. My grandparents lived on farms in South Georgia. The chickens we ate there were chickens we knew. I assumed the chicken I was eating was the slowest chicken that morning. As a kid we were served airplane chicken; just wings and landing gear. I'm sure it's a combination of the way the birds were raised and the recipes used that made that fried chicken so good. I think my biggest failure as a parent was not teaching my daughter to eat chicken off the bone. She grew up eating tenders. She thinks is barbaric to eat meat off a bone. Poor child.

To me, tenders are a whole different category. Not a 'classic' like fried chicken, pizza, hot dogs, or hamburgers. Since I do lower myself to eat tenders from time to time, I will say the best ones I've had in the Nashville area are at Sam's Sports Grill in Hendersonville. I'll bet the ones at Gus's are good too though. I just don't see myself ordering them there.......
