Gus’s mission is simple: serve good fried chicken without the games and gimmicks. And that’s what they do here, and that’s the reason you should come. Hell, their Atlanta location in the Peachtree Center basement seems like an afterthought. So, when you and your crew stop by, you’ll find plenty of standard tables covered in vinyl tablecloths in a sparse dining room that could use more light. Depending on your group’s size, go with an eight-, 12-, or 20-piece of solid fried chicken that’s juuust crispy enough. Load up the table with sides (the cole slaw and fried okra are essential) and plenty of white bread. It’ll kinda feel like a picnic. Only you’ll be in the heart of downtown. And your table might wobble a little.
