Love this place. Always enjoy coming to this restaurant!
Met a friend for lunch and dined curbside. My steak salad was good, although overdressed (asked waiter for dressing on the side but, well, that isn't what happened). Props to the bartender for creating a sparkling wine cocktail (cucumber, celery, something spicy) which was delish. Didn't rush us which was nice since my friend got lost and was a 1/2 hour late.
Very tasty BBQ with a varied menu for all tastes. The Onion Strings were particularly good. Service was top notch.
Delicious food, clean restaurant, attentive servers,... what more do you need?
Great location, service, food. Just loud/noisy and the space between 4top tables was a bit tight for walking and Server access.
Great location with dedicated parking. You can smell the smoke in the air. The bbq was good and tender. All the sauces are great. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be returning
Great food and service. Nashville hot chicken a real winner!
I love BBQ and was excited to try a new place. Nothing my party ordered wowed me. We sent a couple of the sides back and the replacements were just ok. The waitress was pleasant.
Great food and quaint patio seating.
Everything is amazing. I can’t decide what I love most. The picnic platter is highly recommended, that way you can try a bit of everything. Cast iron corn bread is scrumptious and the drinks are STRONG but delightful. All the waiters are so sweet, attentive and helpful. Outdoor seating is provided and they have high chairs and coloring page menus with crayons for those with little ones. I can’t recommend this place enough.
It's an historic restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. The place was crowded and the wait staff still gave us their full attention.. The manager even came to our table to make sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food quality has been declining over the past year it seems. I have been there a few times this year and have not left with a good impression. This time my food came out luke warm and the service was not great.
Very good execution of BBQ with very good service. We had a great time and will return happily.
It was a friend of mine’s birthday lunch, we had wonderful service. Our food was beautifully served and delicious. I enjoy the mac & cheese, the cornbread and the house salad. My friend had the fried chicken and the ribs with her sides of sweet potato fries and coleslaw which she thoroughly enjoyed. Our server brought us a scoop of ice cream with two spoons for my friends birthday.
Amazing as usual! Food and drinks were delicious 😋
Gus's barbecue never disappoints. The food is always delicious.
There's a wonderful menu here: Southern and Cajun/New Orleans dishes, and great barbecue. Lovely salads and sandwiches and a blueberry cobbler that will make you weep with joy. You should try it!
Food was good as always, our server (Doug) was excellent.
We had a great lunch at Gus's. Great service, our waitress was super, great food and I took a salad home for dinner! I love that you can make reservations! Well done!
Food was ok nothing amazing food was cold and ran out of baby back ribs but the employees are very nice and kind
I’ve been coming to Gus’s for years and every time I have a new get together, I live bringing them here! The food is always really delicious and the service is on point! I’m never disappointed!
It was good. Loud, but good. Tables were a bit close together. But service and food were great!
The food was excellent and the service was fantastic!
It was much louder than expected but the food was great - beverages were amazing - and lovely atmosphere. Think we would try & plan going at a less busy time next go around. Definitely coming back. Thank you.
Family friendly. Fast service. My family has been there plenty of times and they can also accommodate a party up to 12 people.
We had a late seating 9.30 and we definitely noticed because they were out of items and we felt rushed at the end. We were not asked for a dessert and got boxes on the table without asking. The food was ok, not great like it normally is, unfortunately. We took friends from out of state to diner and took them here after rating them so high. But we feel like it wasn’t as great as it normally is, unfortunately.
Great food and wonderful service!
Must have been a bad day for the brisket. Not sure I would go back.
Such a great atmosphere. The waiters are very friendly with great suggestions. The food will always be awesome and delicious.
Always good. Always reliable. A neighborhood gem.
The food is delicious, but the sweet potato fries weren’t hot and the pulled pork should have been hotter.
We eat at Gus’s often, and the food is always great and the service is friendly and efficient. My only complaint on this visit, and this is a personal peeve that annoys me at many restaurants, is the inability to course a meal. We were in the middle of eating our salads when our main dishes were dropped off. We raced through our salads and then, while we were eating our entrees, a gloved hand grabbed my plate. I should not have to explain that I was still eating when there was (delicious) tri tip on my plate. We are fast eaters, and there were a few open tables, so there was no reason to make us feel that we had to “speed eat.”
We had such a great time here! Could not give it a high recommendation. Food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. Definitely 10/10
It was me and my girlfriends first time there and from the second we walked through the door, we knew we had found a great place. We were attended nicely and provided great service all around, down to recommendations and overall questions, to being checked up on during our time there. Some of the best barbecue I’ve had in a while with the BBQ chicken being my favorite. Cannot recommend this place any more than a 5 star review, but if I could , I definitely would.
The service and food were good. Yes it is a little loud. Everybody enjoyed it, but reservations are a must.
Great host and the food is always delicious!
I know that this is not the most authentic bbq for some of you experts....BUT it comes very close! And it seems to have even improved over the past couple of years! The wait staff couldn't be nicer, more helpful or friendlier......we are fans and frequent this place routinely.
Sunday breakfast never disappoints!
Great way to start the day!
Congrats to Gus’s!
Celebrating a award I got from work.
Great food, long time customer, kids love it! Thank you!
