Very satisfying!Loved the food and service overall! Although we were tucked away in a corner with all the other families with kids, it was very understandable and they were still very attentive. Food came out quick and the sides were delicious! Blueberry cobbler is a must!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ribs & BrisketIf you're looking for great tasty BBQ in a family friendly (non-chain) restaurant, then Gus's BBQ is for you. This time, we went for lunch. They have sandwiches, but do not have lunch size portions of the dinner menu choices. They also have a small room in the back for larger parties. The ladies room has only one stall. Too bad that they couldn't fit two stalls in there.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWaited for a bit, but I guessWaited for a bit, but I guess u can't rush good food...

The skillet cornbread was a big hit and I can't wait to try and make a similar version at home. Great meal!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food!!?Both of us ordered the brisket dinner...mine came with many small pieces, almost like leftovers....my uncle's plate came with nicely cut slices of brisket. Some of my brisket was a little tough...so I asked for another plate with slices. The waitperson very quickly brought another plate which was much better. They also need to work on keeping the food a little hotter.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMgood grubexcellent signature cocktails . sgt pepper remix is awesome... barbecue is all excellent... but what always brings us in are the fried pickles!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood BBQBBQ chicken and baked beans were our favorite, good cocktails and service5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMReally Good PlaceWe had a variety of things. I personally found the house salad to be fresh with a wonderfully light vinaigrette, te chili was also quite good. The pulled pork tostada is also quite good as are the pork nachos.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time at Gus's BBQWent for lunch on Saturday with a group of 6. Booked the restaurant because good on-line reviews. The BBQ, fish and chip, and local beer are all so good. Our waiter is great. Everyone at our party wants to come back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Wife wanted barbeque forMy Wife wanted barbeque for Mother's Day, and being Pasadena residents, we wanted something close by. So we decided to try Gus's. OpenTable reservation system worked smoothly, followed by a confirmation call the next morning. We arrived for our reservation a half-hour early and the restaurant was kind enough to seat us almost immediately. Service was thoughtful, friendly and not too intrusive. My wife and I split a rib and two meat platter and we were both very happy with our choice. We have a small child and we thought the kid's menu was also thoughtful and our daughter loved her mac and cheese. All in all this made for a very happy Mother's day celebration. Thank you!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service. CallGreat food, great service.
Call ahead for reservations, there is always a crowd.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBarbecue the Way It Should BeGo to Gus's for the Barbecued food, smoked in their quarter million dollar smoker with Pecan wood, but don't miss the Sangria (their own recipe), and if you are in the mood, the Gus's Famous Burger, served with Smoked Bacon and Crispy Onions, is the best you will ever have. Try it with the Sweet Potato Fries. Of course, one of our old stand-bys if you are not too hungry is the Pulled Pork Tostada, and if you are hungry, try the Pulled Pork Nachos for an appetizer. If you are there for a Sunday brunch, try the Pulled Pork Nachos with poached eggs on top. You won't regret it, unless you are in the mood for the Chicken & Waffles. In short, it's all good!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BBQ placeWe have been to Gus's many times and it's always amazing. The pulled pork sandwich and pulled pork nachos are a hit! The service is great and the prices are right. The breakfast on the weekends is also really good!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place. We haveLove this place. We have been going for a while and are never disappointed.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE Place for BBQ'sAfter reading reviews, we went there with open minds...
Greet promptly, table was ready, our waiter was very friendly and helpful since this is our first time,we order appertizer of bake cornbread which was served right away! Very impressive with unique jalapino jelly and cream served on the side. Our entres arrived quickly too, and the Tritip BBQ is melt in your mouth with a touch of smokey BBQ sauce, garlic mashed potatoes and cream corn are also very good. I believe they even make their icecream and dessert, or at least taste homemade and very very good to me. We went on Wednesday night and it was busy with take outs and walk-in customers. Overall, nothing as we read about their services, quite opposite we are definitely going back!.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA+ GusI love everything about Gus's. Great food, stellar service and decent prices. What more can you ask for?3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest BBQ place in L.A.!!We have always loved Gus's BBQ. It really is the best BBQ restaurant in Southern California. We recently found out that on the weekends they have brunch and it is so good!! Just make reservations beforehand because it does pack up quickly. ;)3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest BBQ in South Pasadena!First time and love it!! Those cornbread!! Awesome but fulfilling! Had the pulled pork sandwich and was delicious , you can even add more BBQ sauce that is made from Gus BBQ and those red pepper vinegar , wow! Also had the rib and combo, we picked baby back ribs and brick BBQ chicken. Those brick BBQ chicken was superb!! I would love to have that in a sandwich style!! Keep up the good work to the chefs and the waitress and waiters.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)Very tasty BBQ in a noisy atmosphere. I like their ribs, pulled pork and side dishes. Large portions generally so you may take some home. The service can be rushed at peak hours, but generally is efficient. All in all, one of the better BBQ places around, don't expect a quiet dinner.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
