My wife and I went there on a Friday afternoon at about 3:30pm to eat a late lunch. The sign out front said it was open, but I wasn't sure if the restaurant was serving food that early in the afternoon. As we entered the dining area to sit at a table, I noticed Gus and I asked him if... More

Some people think Mexican food is spicey...in reality it is a bit blah...you can spice it up and Tex-Mex it, but if not it can be a bit plain...Gus' is plain...not a lot of pizazz or spark to it....prices were so-so...no super specials...or great pricing...We don't need to go back...

Unfriendly service, and substandard food. What's charge $15 for a margarita. Owner was very unfriendly. A waste of your time and money.

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...
