My wife and I stopped in by way of recommendation from people in 'the North Country'. Our service was quick and we enjoyed our sandwiches and the fries are very good. It is a nice, comfortable diner atmosphere with well prepared and tasty food. Will stop in again and try the Michigan Dogs next time.

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.

Good diner style food, reasonable prices, and friendly service. If that's the type of place you're looking for, you won't be disappointed.

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!
