Gus’s Fried Chicken Is Coming To Philly


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.

So that’s the good news: Gus’s looks like it’s coming (at least according to the announcement on its Facebook page yesterday) as part of a multi-city expansion.

The bad news? That’s pretty much all we know. The opening is scheduled for 2015, but we don’t know when, don’t know exactly where, don’t know any other specifics other than Gus’s is on its way.

You’ll know more when we know more. And in the meantime, there’s always Bon Chon to hold us over while we wait.
