My fiance came up with this one:

Memphis trifecta: If you can do this in one day you should get a title belt: Gus's fried chicken, Soul burgers (Ernestine & Hazel's), and Central BBQ. Notice I said soul burgerS.

Now that there is a downtown location of Central, you could actually do all of this on foot or use the trolley. Bonus points for eating sweet potato pancakes at The Arcade, especially if you can score Elvis' booth by the emergency door.

Did the burgers late one night and woke up and went to gus's for lunch the next day. I did like the chicken at gus's, but did not care for the pie.

I think the key to success if to finish the night off with soul burgers.

I've eaten at the downtown Central three times this month. I think the ribs there have been better than the original. All else is still the same top-notch stuff that make Central my favorite.

And I'd rather eat Uncle Lou's chicken ANY DAY over a Gus's franchise in Memphis.

I see Uncle Lou every Wednesday night. My 8 yr old loves his honey butter biscuits so he tries to fix him up with some extras whenever we go in and eat. I'll show him your reply to this thread tonight. Lol

Show away! I've told him to his face numerous times that his chicken is good enough to make you want to slap anyone named Gus.

He laughed and said "Thank You!", and told me to tell you to introduce yourself next time you come in and mention my name so that he will put 2 and 2 together. We should just head over there one day for lunch or something, and I'll give him a heads up on when we will be there.
