Spicy fried chicken favorite Gus’s World Famous is expanding, this time landing in standalone building off Glenoaks Boulevard in Burbank.
Per some city paperwork, it looks like Gus’s will take over the shuttered Momotaro restaurant space, just off the main chain restaurant drag there and not far from the massive new IKEA. The corner space comes with plenty of parking and great access for folks in the Valley and all points south and east who don’t feel like schlepping to Pico Boulevard for their Memphis-style spicy chicken fix.
If you’re not already familiar with Gus’s, get excited. The restaurant chain is among the most popular fried chicken names in all of America, and has already reached great heights from their corner spot at Pico and Crenshaw. Jonathan Gold loves the place, and with hot chicken of all sorts become more and more popular, it’s a perfect time to expand. Plus the Valley continues to thrive thanks to its business-friendly outlook and lower rent prices, so expect more great concepts from around Los Angeles to start heading that way soon.
