Home Town Favorite

Hometown favorite with good BBQ and a long standing time in this community. Mike dishes up great BBQ in an updated atmosphere. I've been eating Gus' BBQ for 30 years and it's just as good today as it was then.

Me and my crew work Texas City quite often. They have assured me that the rib-eye sandwich from Gus's is hands down the best in Texas City. If you are trying to grab a lunch get there early say elevenish. The staff is always quick with a smile and something quirky to brighten up your day. This is definately an... More

I've gone here a few times for lunch and it fills up quick. I've had the ribeye steak and grilled chicken Caesar salad. Both were excellent. Never a problem with wait staff attentiveness. After 4pm it becomes a local watering hole as well.

I ate at this restaurant because it was recommended to me by a local. Said if I liked steak, it wss the place to go. I found out that was NOT the case! The steak was chewy and tasted like it had been in a freezer for two weeks. It took close to ten minutes to even get a server... More

Overall, I was most impressed with the service - they were very fast and attentive. Stopped in just before noon on a weekday. Was seated immediately, and server came by immediately. Have never been there so can't speak to the food except for what I ordered. I had a 2 meat BBQ plate, and am very picky about brisket -... More

Remember the quote that you cannot go home. No true regarding Gus'. The chipped barbecue beef is a tradition from my childhood. It is still as good as it was "in the beginning". Of course, the restaurant has a full menu of great items, but I cannot pass up the tradition.

We were in Texas City on business, & decided to try Gus'. We heard it was "Great"..... The food is way overpriced for what you get. The staff wasn't very helpful or attentive.. We waited about 10 minuets before we were even asked for our drink order, & about the same amount of time to place our food order once... More
