Reporter Food: Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken

Reporter Food: Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken

Royal Oak, MI – There are only three locations of Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken in Michigan – Westland, Detroit and Royal Oak. And while it is a chain, it is also unique in this area and therefore worth a review.

A friend and I enjoyed meals of fried chicken, cole slaw, baked beans, and okra. It was tasty food in a great location just north of 13 Mile on the Southbound side of Woodward. The chicken is never frozen.  It’s hormone-free, and fried in peanut oil.

The menu is simple, with chicken as the mainstay. Other available sides include greens, seasoned fries, and Mac & Cheese.
