Service wasn't great, but the food is always yummy!
It had been a year or more since I had eaten at Gus's. I had forgotten how incredibly delicious their food is. I loved the cornbread, ribs, chicken, creamed corn and baked beans. It will not be another year before I return. In fact I plan on returning every week or so.
I enjoy the So. Pasadena location and the Porter Ranch location.
Please ask management to build a location in either San Clemente or San Juan Capistrano!
The onion strings and the sauce that comes with them are outstanding. The portions are large, nevertheless the prices are reasonable. Chances are that you will be bringing food home. The fried chicken is flattened and the crust is light, but with a nice crunch.
Great menu selection, service was prompt and my family and I really enjoyed our meals.
Disaster. Ran out of brisket. Baby backs. St. Louis ribs at eight pm. Put in closet back room. Didn’t honor reservation for main dining room. Been going there for years. Portions small. A joke
great food! creative menu! not a long wait to get in. excellent customer focus
Love this place
This was our first visit to Gus's after years of driving by. We really enjoyed it. Service was friendly, fun and excellent. And the food was very tasty too. Thanks to everyone at Gus's!
They had us when we saw Iron Cast Corn Bread on their menu. Everything in our meals were excellent. Definitely, addictive !!!
Fried chicken meal was excellent: crisp outside while the meat inside remained juicy. Every side was delicious: greens, potato salad, baked beans were all flavorful.
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.
