Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken Is Coming To South Philly

GusNeon

We first made the joyous announcement back in February that Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken–that famous Memphis brand, currently in the middle of an expansion cycle–was looking at Philly as one of the possible cities for a new, out-of-state location. We didn’t know much other than the fact that Gus’s was exploring its options. Hell, despite our enthusiasm, we weren’t even sure that Philadelphia was going to make the final cut.

But now, we have some good news.

Supper knows that not everyone sees Friday nights as the second best night of the week to get blackout drunk (the best night, of course, being Thursday). That’s why the restaurant has made Friday night, Family Night.

Seriously? It’s like you people have never seen fried chicken before.

The lines, the waits, the epic crowds–all of this has served to throw a big, chicken-smelling wrench into the grand opening plans at BonChon in Chinatown. First, they had to scale back their hours so they could focus on their dinner crowds during the grand opening weekend–dumping lunch service entirely and opening at 5pm. Then they made that schedule temporarily permanent, announcing that, for the time being, the hours were going to be 5pm-11pm only. That schedule still stands, and today they’ve had to scale back even more.

This has been a pretty good week for people who love fried chicken.

First, we finally saw the opening of Bon Chon Korean Fried Chicken, which threw wide the doors after a looooong wait just yesterday in Chinatown. And now, there’s news that the very-not-Korean Gus’s Fried Chicken is coming to Philly by way of Memphis.

This is awesome for two reasons. 1) More fried chicken is never a bad thing. And 2) I’ve been to Gus’s before, and can report that that “World Famous” on its sign is well-deserved.

Starting on February 2, the first Monday of every month at Jerry’s Bar is going to mean fried chicken, sticky buns and beer.

The bar just so happens to be inaugurating its new Monday chicken tradition on a very important holiday: Groundhog Day. And in celebration of this fact Groundhog Day (the movie starring Bill Murray) is going to be playing on repeat all throughout the night.

In addition to enjoying the cinematic stylings of one of America’s finest films, for just $20 per person, guests are invited to chow down on fried half-chickens, sticky buns by Breakin’ Bread Bakery, and a pint of Kenzinger.

Tickets for the event can be purchased here. And remember: Don’t drive angry.

Resurrection’s twice-fried chicken with honey drizzle has been a standout since it received acknowledgement from Bon Appetit as one of America’s ten best fried chickens, back in 2010.
