Memphis-based spicy chicken chain Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken has officially opened in Burbank, adding even more space (and parking) to their growing fried chicken empire. The address along Glenoaks Boulevard softly started serving last week, but is in full-on lunch and dinner mode now.
As if to prove the point, it looks like Gus’s has already racked up a few dozen quick reviews on Yelp, and folks seem to be loving the expansive new interior. There’s still plenty of picnic table charm and wood block everywhere, don’t worry, but this location also has a dedicated space for merchandise, and ample room on the walls for all the accolades they’ve been getting, including a stellar review from Jonathan Gold.
For the uninitiated, Gus’s differs in style from Nashville hot chicken proprietors like Howlin’ Ray’s or the new Dave’s Hot Chicken stand in Thai Town. While the bird is ultimately spicy, it’s not meant to normally reach the extra-hot heights often found on the Nashville side, and lacks the hot oil dip that keeps heat on the outside of the crust.
Daily hours for Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken in Burbank run 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. most nights, with an extension to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
