Luckily for us the best fried chicken is fried chicken in Kentucky. I didn't say it the other way around. Got it for curbside during this crazy COVID-19 pandemic. Good to see lots of people standing around waiting on their order to be brought outside. This was my first time to eat Gus's chicken and a friend was correct, this is the best fried chicken ever. Can't wait to be able to get to eat inside. Move over Col. Sanders! Gus's herbs and spices and technique got you beat.

Now we're cookin' with peanut oil!!! It was bound to happen, Mr. Sanders was eventually going to lose his title for Kentucky's best chicken. It happened here, folks!! I can't forget to mention and share the video of the owner, Gus Oyler and his kindness. During this pandemic, he donated over 400 pieces of chicken to Food Chain. **COVID side note: They're not open for carryout, but they are open for curbside pickup. Even better full review
