Gus's BBQ - Claremont
Service was great and food was good!!
This was our 3rd time at Gus’s. First 2 times we loved it and expected it to be the same. However, this time both my husbands ribs and my brisket were very dry. We did not have to wait long for our food so it’s not like it sat too long under heat lights. Both our meals were just dried out for some reason. Sides were excellent as was the service.
Food is always excellent. Expect some noise. We were seated by the door facing 1st Street. Since it was cold outside, we asked for another table Our request was refused. Perhaps they were expecting a bigger
crowd in a short while.
The pulled pork was tough and stringy. Everything else was mediocre but ok.
Good atmosphere, good food, enjoyable and experience
Lovely atmosphere and patio. The food is delicious, no matter what you pick. Our favorites are the beef brisket and the fried chicken.
We ordered one starter and one entree. The entree was brought quickly and the starter quickly forgotten, The entree - a side of ribs was decent at one end and badly under cooked at the other. How one does that we're not sure. When, at the end of the meal, we reminded the manager (filling in for the missing server) that the starter on the bill had never been delivered, she provided us with the starter and took it off the bill. That was the best, and really only good, part of the occasion. Gus's does a very good volume of business and we're sure they won't miss our presence in the future. Nor will we miss them.
Tried to call them because we were running late, but got voicemail. They kind enough to try to seat us as soon they could. The best cornbread, unlike no other!
My family is most definitely coming back to Gus's BBQ! We enjoyed an amazing dinner together for New Year's Eve. The ambiance and atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Our table was ready as soon as we arrived and the staff did everything to ensure we were happy with our experience.
Food is great!! Love the pulled pork nachos and their baby back ribs. Always have a great time dining here with family and friends.
One of the people in our party is gluten free and we were surprised to find so many options for her to eat. The food was outstanding! We will definitely be coming back!
It was a cool place Made a reservation and were sat pretty quickly Server was pleasant and gave us good suggestions for drinks and food. I really liked my bbq sandwich My husband liked his and our friends both enjoyed there food. I’d love to go back again :)
My sons were visiting (from East coast)who are both used to fine dining and I really wanted to entertain them with a great restaurant from California! Right away my husband says, we’re going to Gus’s bbq! Reservations were quick and easy. Everything was awesome and delicious! Service was friendly and real good chow! We will definitely be a returning guest.
Great dinner and atmosphere!
Great BBQ place. Very good service. Food was delicious.
We received a great recommendation from our waitress on the Monday night special dinner and also on the blueberry cobbler dessert - well done!
Birthday- just ok. Food mediocre.
They seemed to want to feed us and get us out. Appetizers and food came out at the same time.
Great staff, really enjoy the outdoor seating.
First time, waiter was excellent, food was good. Will definitely be going back
The food was good but the corn bread was very small for 6 people.
The food was wonderful. We ordered the St. Louis ribs with trip tip. The meat was perfectly cooked. The sides were impressive. We got the dirty rice, creamed corn, garlic mashed potatoes, and brussel sprouts. Even with the weather being chilly we sat outside under a heater and it was comfortable. It was pretty quiet on a Tuesday night but might be louder on a weekend.
What more can I say about this restaurant, other than I have been back 5 times since I first went to the great restaurant and have reservations to go 3 more times.
I’ve been there before but the food this time was less than desirable. I’m sorry I usually don’t post negative reviews but it deserves it, if someone takes all their food ask them what’s up?? I took my food for my dog. Sad I won’t be going back.
My wife wanted to celebrate her birthday at Gus’s.
Service was excellent, the food never disappoints. Chris was our server, he did a good job.
Great for outdoor dining! The pulled pork tostada salad is really good!
I highly recommend Gus's BBQ to anyone looking for some excellent BBQ, service & atmosphere.
If you want BBQ... in California, Gus's is about as good as it gets.
I generally don't like Bar-b-que restaurants, and nearly cancelled but what a delightful surprise. The brisket was exactly as advertised, definitely a slow cook 14 hrs or more. I just scraped off the sauce ( I said I don't like Bar-b-que restaurants it's because of the sauce) and had a wonderful meal. My companions had the catfish and ribs, all the entree's delicious. It is so oblivious that they know how to cook. PS amazing margaritas
Our reservation was for 630 on Friday night. We arrived at 620 and checked in. By 625 we were seated. Hood drinks and the food was awesome as always
The service was a nice balance of coming by just enough without being to there. Great experience again.
Great BBQ and Fried Chicken!
Have eaten regularly at Gus's in South Pasadena. This was the first time at the Claremont venue, which featured the same excellent menu as the former. Overall more casual and situated in more of an active entertainment area. We ate outside on the deck, which was perfect for the perfect fall evening. Cocktails were very good. Pulled pork was excellent - I had the plate while my wife had the sandwich. Coffee was excellent.
Celebrating my daughters birthday
Had baby back ribs that were delicious, cornbread delicious but the greens could have been cooked a little longer and a bit more spicy. Overall cool place I’ll definitely be back!
Great food, good service, and good times. I was frustrated with Lucille’s wait time, decided to come here and was not disappointed.
We love going to Gus’s. This last time was no exception. The food is always amazing, the staff is always efficient and so fun, the atmosphere is laid back and cozy. HIGHLY recommend!
Good meat, but the sides varies from boring to overly spicey. It was loud and overpriced, as are many restaurants in busy night neighborhoods.
Excellent as always! I love this place.
