Adventures in Lauderdale County #3: Gus's Fried Chicken
The last place I visited on my trip to Lauderdale County isn't in Lauderdale County at all, but in the town of Mason, Tennessee in Tipton County. This is the original site of Gus's Fried Chicken, makers of the greatest fried chicken in the world.
While this restaurant didn't live up to the cleanliness of the franchises in downtown or east Memphis, the waitresses were friendly and the chicken was just as good.
And no, I didn't visit the Coyote Arena. Would you?
