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

Food is good but staff was not very helpful on this visit. Maybe they were having a bad day. Nice local joint to eat after going to the dike recreational area.

When we are in Texas city on business we always drop by gus's for a burger! I've had the BBQ as well and it's good, but its the burger that is memorable. Only downside is the time it takes to get in and out, but it is worth the wait!

The meat has the best flaver and the bun makes the burger! They are huge...big enough to split!
