Since 1946, Gus’s has been serving true Southern hospitality and some of the best real pit BBQ around.

A menu filled with traditional Southern cooking is complemented by an impressive range of whiskies, wines, cocktails and local craft beers. Today, Gus’s is a space for a warm welcome, a cold mint julep, and a big plate of the best flavors from the American South and Midwest.

    Grilled chicken, sides, beverages, and service were excellent. We had a reservation, were seated promptly, and enjoyed a relaxing meal in a nice booth. We always enjoy Gus’s in Claremont.

    The atmosphere and food were good. Service could have been better. From the moment we sat down at our table, we felt very rushed! The server came back many times to have us place our dinner order; not letting us enjoy our appetizer & drinks. Food was rushed & bill set down before we were done eating.

    We arrived 20 minutes earlier than our reservation time. After checking in, we were seated immediately. Kelly was our server. We found him to be very pleasant and attentive throughout our stay. As an appetizer, we ordered onion strings. I ordered the Classic Eggs Benedict with the jalapeño grits. It was an amazing meal. To drink, I had the old fashioned. It tasted great and was made correctly. After finishing my cocktail, I had a neat Blanton's.
