Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken is now open at the remodeled NorthWood Shopping Center, 2816 W. 47th Ave., Kansas City, Kan.

Retail and restaurant reporter Joyce Smith stopped by the eatery on Feb. 7, when it held a “friends and family” event. Here are some of the menu highlights:

▪ Fried okra, $5.95

▪ Half chicken (1 of each piece), $13.45

▪ 8 pieces, $19.95

▪ Greens, $3.95 for medium

▪ Chocolate chess pie, $2.95/slice

The chain says its chicken is hot and spicy and indeed, the thinly breaded chicken does have a kick and slight burn. Watch Joyce’s video from the Feb. 7 event to see how the chicken is made and what customers thought of it.
