My husband introduced me to Gus's just after we married. The steak in a sak is delicious! This is the place to go after every game or just passing through. Yum!

Walked in, manager on duty rudely told me to "get out" , even with the exception of it being Halloween because I had no shirt on. Missing teeth and bad health himaelf picking his nose. I do not advise this place unless your a broke student. Please check the health score.

This place has not changed measurably since I was here in college. The sandwiches are out of this world and unique to this area. I have never found another like it - they steam the sandwich making it an incredible taste experience. Must try.

My boyfriend was a UT student and loved this place while he was in Knoxville. We stopped at Gus's while traveling through. For my first Knoxville food experience, I was pretty pleased. We ordered hogie sandwiches and they were melty goodness. Considering this place is sorta rundown looking (but in a charming way; it wasn't dirty) the meat was all... More

Gus's is a great place and they are open late and they have delivery to several hospitals like Baptist, UT, Fort Sanders, Children's. Also to area motels. My favorite is the chicken salad sandwich because the chicken salad has big chunks of chicken in it and it's the best I have ever ate. Also the cheeseburgers and fries are excellent.... More

Awesome Greek deli. A little pricey, but good. Get the double Gus's burger, with a cold beer.
