What a waste of time and money. Not much of a menu either. Most Mexican restaurants have pages upon pages. This place is WAY overpriced for mediocre Mexican. I ordered a combo with an enchilada ... I cut into the enchilada and it was shredded cheese on the inside that wasn't even melted! The other items were not good either--a... More

Ordered the burrito for lunch. Had to pay extra for sides. We were probably one of 3 tables that were there at the time. When our food arrived it was cold and didn't taste like authentic Mexican at all. It never looks busy and I can see why. We will never go back again.

The food was not good and overall just bad mexican food/greasy. The margaritas were not very good either.

We eat here every Sunday. We stopped in by chance in November and have been nothing but pleased, from the food to the service. Gus treats us like one of the family, he knows exactly what we want to eat and drink. ..great personalized service. We will continue to enjoy or Sunday lunch at Gus'.

We enjoy the fast service and friendly wait staff. With two kids that are picky eaters they enjoy the fresh guacamole and salsa. My soda was always refilled with out even asking for it which is always nice since that is normally what you wait around for at a restaurant. We also visit Gus's every Friday for lunch with a...

I've always gone to this location as part of a larger group. They are very accommodating to our groups. The margaritas are strong, the salsa is fresh (I like to mix the two) as are the chips. The items on the menu are just "meh". I was surprised the waiter didn't know the specials at my last visit and couldn't... More

Stopped In last night. December 29 2013. The place was dead.(never a good sign)! Ordered 3 entrees . Chimichangas tamales and tostada. Waitress was great, almost to nice? The food was bland and not well prepared. But that in itself would not prompt me to write a review. After the check was taken to be paid the waitress returned and... More
