Everything face it good decent size portion but come on undercooked bloody Chicken on the thighs give me a break and that is commercial package fried Chicken I say that with over 50 years restaurant experience what happened seriously consider to order again again undercooked bloody chicken thighs The order was through doordash shouldn't make a difference on the cooking of the chicken


Mmmmm good! The fried chicken has a mild kick but makes it so good and I don’t like spicy! The sides were all good I tried all my families! The Chess pie was amazing! I’d come again if I am in Birmingham!!!!

Quick service. Visited this location today. I visited Gus’ years ago I think in Memphis , and before they came to Birmingham. Anyway, if you like spicy, you will love the chicken. I had a two piece mixed with Mac and cheese and baked beans. The chicken has a very thin crust on it which tastes like it’s marinated in hot sauce. I prefer more breading and crust myself. The Mac and cheese was thick but needed salt in my opinion. The beans were tasty. Good visit and wasn’t busy. The cashier acted like she wanted to be at work. Just make sure your stomach can handle spicy!
