SXSW Day 1: Gus’s Fried Chicken Brings The Taste of Memphis To Austin


One of the main differences at this year’s South By Southwest in downtown Austin was something that Memphis people have loved for year, Gus’s Fried Chicken. The venerable Memphis restaurant opened its Austin location earlier this year in a spot that had been a Mongolian barbecue restaurant, but which had been vacant for the last several South By Southwest events. The line for the Memphis-style fried chicken was out the door and down the block.
