My boyfriend and I enjoy supporting local establishments but please save your $$$ and don't go here. I ordered a blackened tuna dad and my boyfriend ordered the lasagna. But before addressing the food, lets start at the door. There was not a hostess to greet us. We looked at a menu while waiting and to thought about a chancing... More

This is one of our favorite spots. The baked lasagna is my favorite, the salads are always crisp and fresh with homemade dressings. The garlic bread is always good. The staff is attentive and the atmosphere offers a place to enjoy a family get-together or a quiet dinner of conversation and good food.

I sat on the bar side (by choice) and had a pretty good experience. We ordered a pizza and baked spaghetti, both of which were really good. I thought the pizza was a little over priced ($16.50 for a medium two topping), but it was good and decent sized so it was not terrible. The pasta was well priced. There... More

I read this one review and it was not good, so I decided to try it and see for myself.. Well it was great the food the people were very nice, prices not bad.. So it just goes to show you that someone might have some hidden agenda or maybe some kind of beef with someone there who knows. You... More

Gus's has been delivering consistent quality and service for over 20 years. I love the jerks that expect the same for a $20 dinner that they do for a $100 dinner but they probably complain no matter where they go! Gus's has great italian food and outstanding pizza! The bar is large and very friendly which strangers quickly find out... More

Arrived for lunch at 1 PM. Two parties in the restaurant including our party of 4. Waiter offered us 1 menu for 4 people and said he'd be back with more menus. By the time he returned -- maybe 10-15 minutes later, all 4 of us had shared the menu and decided on our order. We finally got our lunch... More

I am not sure what restaurant the negative reviews visited but it was obviously not the same as I went to. The food was great, the service friendly and good. This is my first visit and when in the area I plan to visit Gus' again.

Food was typical bar fried food service wasn't too bad, the young lady tending bar was entertaining and somewhat cute. She does know how to turn on the charm and talk a little Chiefs football. You know when the regulars show up!! The charm and flirting goes through the roof!! Small town local pub.
