“Great food and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Gus runs an excellent restaurant! The food is always very good and the service is excellent. Whether it is breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you cannot beat the food and value at Gus's!!

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Excellent food an service. We were seated promptly, the server took care of us as soon as we sat, made sure everything was going well and not too overbearing. Pecan Pie was to die for.

“Great food, prices & service. Inadequate bathroom facilities.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

I love this place! Great diner food, good prices, diner atmosphere, reliable and professional service! But in a restaurant that holds seemingly 300 people, for the men's room to have only one toilet and one urinal, that's just gross.

Someone left a floater in the toilet, so that was unusable, leaving just one urinal for use.

3 adults and 3 kids ate for $35! I loved my corned beef hash and home fries, kids loved their pancakes and sausage, though we do prefer the thinner sausage links as opposed to the thick links at Gus's.

Server was fantastic at keeping the kids happy with crayons and quick service for them.

I WILL be back to Gus's! Hopefully more toilets and no floaters are coming soon!

“Great family place w/lots of room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Such a good diner in a convenient location between Elizabethtown and Mt Joy just off Rt 283. Last time there with family had breakfast and it was so good I could have ordered the same thing and eaten it right away. I had florentine eggs benedict and it was delicious - served with good home fries and coffee. Way to start my day!

“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Very nice restaurant with wonderful home cooking; they make you feel as if you are a part of their family! The restaurant was packed, the wait was not too long and there was plenty of comfortable (soft) benches for many people to sit and wait for their table to be available. The atmosphere was friendly and family like, every staff member we saw greeted us kindly and acted as if they were genuinely glad to see us there. Including waiters, waitresses, bus people - EVERYONE was very friendly. Absolutely amazing AND the food was good and prices were good too!
