Gus’s Fried Chicken in Mid-City has been added to the list of restaurants bringing Southern fried chicken to the West Coast. The short, succinct menu specializes in its namesake fried chicken, but it also offers a delicious appetizer seldom seen on L.A. menus: fried green tomatoes. As for the spicy fried chicken — yes, it is fiendishly delicious, with its shatteringly crisp, mahogany-hued batter revealing tender meat within. The far-from-overpowering spice of the batter truly grows on you. Two-piece, three-piece or half-chicken combination plates are served with sweet, meaty barbecue beans, a sprightly coleslaw and plain white bread, a reminder of the humble roots of the fried chicken. - Besha RodellRead our full review.
