My sister in law Barbara Brown Trautman and I go to Plattsburg and we always get michigans...it is the one thing we miss. We have tried them all...and this year like Gus's Best part is Barbara used to babysit for the original owner's children...

My husband brought me to this place because I had to try a Michigan Dog. I will admit they were very good, and the French fries were awesome! It is a very friendly little place that resembles a diner inside. There is a quite a large menu.

Four of us stopped here for breakfast before catching the ferry to Vermont. It's obviously a long-standing business in Plattsburgh. We all had good, filling breakfasts for about $10/head including tip. The waitress was very friendly and seemed to have been a long-time employee. The food was not exceptional but it was at least as good as an IHOP, Perkins... More

We usually stop here if we are at breakfast time for traditional bacon and eggs. Great very crisp bacon! Nice people and with traditional diner food.

I live on the road, so a good meal is very important. Gus' was a great meal at a reasonalble price. Plenty of food, great service, in a good atmosphere. I had breakfast here while staying for a week. The food was hot and plentiful. Everything the traveler needs.

Good Michigan, better than McSweeney's. Waitress was great! But the prices were outrageous! Burger was good! Fried pickles were yummy!

OMG, this was an absolutely miserable meal. My signif. other ordered the half rack of ribs that were apparently microwaved . . . partially. Below the surface, the ribs were cold. In addition, the ribs were so dry and tough, only two ribs were edible. I ordered the special of the day, pulled pork sandwich. I ordered it without the... More

I hadn't been to Gus's in YEARS so I brought the family back and it did not disappoint! Everyone was satisfied. Their Michigan Platters are the way to go, something for everyone!
