We have enjoyed Gus's since the 1970's and it is still a great place to go. I had the sausage plate, and mixed the kansas City sauce with the hot sauce and it was an unbeatable combination.
My wife loves the cornbread (orders it every time we go).
They are well known for their barbeque sandwiches, but from our experience, everything on the menu is good.
As usual, Gus' BBQ delivers great food with great service! This was our first time having their breakfast menu. I highly recommend their kale & sausage omelet!
Always great food and service. Busy and a little noisy.
Unfortunately, I cannot remember our server's name, but he was fantastic! Very attentive, great energy, and made our experience for Mother's Day an awesome one! Couldn't have been better.
I absolutely love this place! Amazing food, drinks are always on point, along with the service. Always love coming here for any reason!
Food is fantastic. Everything we ordered, from appetizer to main course are all amazing.
Mother's Day Brunch was awesome. Our waiter was great until he took a break. Then we never saw his replacement. However, food and ambiance was great. We even took out dinner for that night.
Very delicious!!! Baby Back half slab very filling and you don’t need a sauce if you prefer. I can’t wait to go again
Service and food are always excellent. Great, friendly atmosphere. Servers Jairo and Edward are outstanding.
I love Gus’s BBQ!! I have eaten/tasted almost the entire menu and have never been disappointed. They have a Saturday and Sunday brunch that I have not tried yet!!
Go, you will love it.
I first became acquainted with Gus's many years ago when it was under the original management. I loved the wonderful, creamy salad dressing that they made right on the premises and had several favorite dishes. It was affordable, so I was a frequent customer. Now, the menu is radically different, but in a good way. I was amazed at the beautiful presentation of my pulled pork tostada. The chips that lined the edges of the plate were among the best I've had, and I highly recommend the pulled pork tostada. The corned bread is equally innovative and delicious. I was too full to even consider dessert. The service was professional and efficient, and the waiters are friendly, too. But, the prices - as well as the ingredients used - and actually the high prices of quality ingredients in today's market - have put Gus's a bit out of my reach for an "everyday" meal. I am happy that Gus's now takes reservations via Open Table because during my last few visits (probably all more than four years ago), I've had to wait for a table. I definitely will recommend Gus's in the future and intend not to wait another four or more years before dining there again.
Went for our daughters birthday, everyone was great and the food was fantastic
Not sure if it was because they were busy or the food was just not as good as I remember.
Great food .. great service!!
amazing food, good service, fun place. My bf and I split a combo platter and pulled pork nachos for our date, everything was amazing. Would recommend the sausage and bbq chicken in particular
Server was very attentive and friendly.
They seem to sit all the families on small tables. We aren’t normally picky but with all the condiments on the table, it was too crowded for a family of 4. A booth would have been better.
Wow! The best bbq in LA county. My brisket was so tender and juicy. The baby back ribs were very good as was the pulled pork. Then they give you 4 bbq sauces to try out. With my sides of Mac and cheese plus coleslaw. I was stuffed. Oh don’t for get to get the cornbread! Three of us split it but it was fantastic. I can’t wait to come back.
The service was very good - the wait staff was attentive and polite. The food was good, not gourmet, but no complaints. It's very noisy there and I would have preferred to sit at the bar.
Definitely get reservation, they are busy on weekend!
Great BBQ in a lively atmosphere. Love their greens. Service was excellent.
As always it was fantastic. Always love to dine at Gus’s. Good food, casual atmosphere and a great place to catch up with friends.
This is the best BBQ in southern California. I will be back!
Gus' BBQ is a S. Pasadena institution and one that has significance for families in the area from a certain part of Greece. I like returning from time to time to remember that my father started washing dishes here and went on to fulfill his "American Dream." Now for the rest, the ambiance is lively so for our purposes of a meeting, we could barely hear each other. If you're looking for a place to whisper sweet words to your amore, this is not the place for you, at least at dinner time. We all seemed pleased with our meals, mostly salads and a cup of chili. Prices are reasonable and the service was attentive.
The Food was just okay, it could have been better. My friend ordered tri tip and for the price she should have gotten more food for her money. I don't think I would go back, it was okay but not great.
Great service and food .
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful
1st time here after observing this place go through some changes. My 1st reaction was after tasting this food was what took me so long!!?? We had the combo with ribs, fried chicken and sausage. Fantastic! Just loved every succulent bite! The ribs just fell off the bones and extremely juicy; the fried chicken was crunchy and very moist and huge! And the sausage was spicy without being too hot. A wonderful experience and I can't wait to come back!
Fancy but accessible. Great service, great food.
We love the food and especially the quality and creativity of the BBQ'd meats. The smoked pastrami is amazing. It is a casual place with solid comfort food, good for kids and families.
Wouldn't go ANYWHERE else! This is our "GO-TO" spot each year for an after-business meeting and it never fails to deliver the BEST food and superb service. It deserves to be busy...
I Always enjoy a good meal here. I had the baby back ribs, pulled pork and brisket. Always delicious!
Absolutely phenomenal place. Service is second only to the food itself.
Second time. They made good on my friends drink, it was not what brand she caller for. Food great, make sure you leave room for the blue berry cobbler but get two scoops of ice cream. Had table ready.
Great service and great food!
Great food, I had the chicken n it was absolutely delicious, husband had ribs n they were excellent
I am sure they have heard this many times but I’ll say it again. They need expand their waiting area. It’s a constant shuffle ariund the room. There is only standing room in a very small section.
Never fails. So amazing. No need to get half rack, get the full for $5 more and have leftovers. The grits are amazing. The friend chicken is perfect and boneless!
I had the brisket sandwich and my wife had the burger. Both are worth going back for. I was seated right away and the server was awesome. I'll be back.
