Guy's World Famous Fried Chicken has several locations on the east side of the state

  • Detroit - 4101 Third St. Detroit MI 48201
  • Royal Oak - 31105 Woodward Ave Royal Oak MI 48073
  • Westland - 35505 Ford Rd Westland MI 48185

This Is what Cheapism had to say about Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken.

Fans call this fried chicken "the best in the world" on Yelp, but the hot and spicy fried chicken is a Memphis tradition here. Consider getting a plate with beans, slaw, and white bread. But even if you just get chicken, you'll still be happy.
