Time Out says

Originally from a small town in Tennessee, this national chain with outposts in Mid-City and Burbank has served its signature hot, spicy fried chicken for over 70 years. Note that Gus’s breading runs on the thinner side, and the spice level is nowhere close to Nashville-style hot chicken, so if you’re looking for an over-the-top, craggy fried chicken experience, this ain’t it. The fried chicken’s homey quality and top-secret spice blend, however, still have us hooked, especially once you throw in a slice or two of the homemade pies—sweet potato, chocolate chess and good old-fashioned pecan.
