Visiting Sonora area once again and wanting to have dinner at a place we have never visited before, but had been recommended to us. Also, noted in local magazine in our hotel that Gus's had been voted best steakhouse in Tuolumne County area so we decided to give it a try. Not much to look like from outside, and at... More

Gus's Steak House will now be a stopping place every time were in the area. Gus and the staff are amazing. The food is excellent (I had Prime Rib Scampi) and the prices are really good.

My husband and I decided to go here for date night. We hadn't been here since 2007. We were not disappointed. It was the best steak we've had in years and the pasta was incredible as well. Not only that but the staff was friendly and Gus was very welcoming and asked is where we were from. You just don't... More

Old style steakhouse arrangements. Best Ribeye you've ever had. Gus is known to come out to the restaurant for some informal feedback. Service is excellent, food is great, atmosphere brings back some fond memories.

When you enter the restaurant is dark and dirty looking. The food was awful. The steaks are covered with a sauce to cover up a terrible steak. The fondue was worse than velveeta. No one at our table liked their food. Maybe people like the price and the portion sizes, I prefer to eat food that taste good. We will... More

Ate here before going to SRT performance. Service excellent. Where can you get 2 meals including cheese fondue, great bread, soup or salad, entree with veggies and potato for $20? That's not $20 each, that is for BOTH meals. My advice--tip the wait staff as if you paid more--they deserve it! I ordered salmon. My date ordered tri tip with... More

Gu's is a great family sit down place. I love their cheese dip and fresh bread. Bread pudding for dessert is the best. weekly special 2 dinners for $20. Great deal.
