Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken

Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken
1262 Crenshaw Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90019

Just north on Crenshaw from the best place in LA for BBQ ribs, Phillip's BBQ,  is Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken. I have heard more about Howlin' Ray's, so I wanted to see which one was better. 

Located at the corner of Crenshaw and Pico, Gus’s has a large dining area, but tough parking.  Parking was easy to find the day I went because it was Easter.  Otherwise plan to walk and pay for parking.

2 breast pieces, $4.80 each.  Both pieces were nice and juicy!  Gus’s has a more subtle heat, that slowly hits your senses!  The skin is very crispy and flavorful.  This is outstanding chicken and better than Howlin' Ray's!

Service was great!  I called ahead to make sure they were open on Easter.  Most places have attitude when you ask if they are open.  But, not Gus’s.  They were friendly and very welcoming!  I went to the bar area to place my take out order and lady who helped me was also friendly and welcoming.

I will be back to Gus’s, very soon!  A much better flavorful fried chicken than Howlin' Ray's!
