Had a good Philly steak sandwich with onion rings as pictured. Food was good but definitely nothing to brag about. Onion rings were well just a little better than what you find in your freezer section at Food Lion. I would recommend this place as descent a place to fill your belly as one as you don't have to high... More

Always enjoy Gus's and the staff is always welcoming and remembers you and your drink of choice. You have your choice of restaurant of bar side. Recently had a great tuna wrap, and family had pizza. Wings are great too. They also added some local craft beers on tap. Can't go wrong here.

I ordered the Parmesan as sausage sandwich with marinara sauce. Very good. The problem here is my wife ordered mussels and they were served with a portion of unopened mussels. We send back the unopened mussels expecting them to be replaced with fresh ones. Unfortunately they just stuck them under the broiler, burnt them to a crisp and expected us... More

The location is in a plaza. Good place to watch college and pro football games. The bartenders are pleasant and attentive. And the wings and pizza are pretty good too!

Stopped looking for a place showing football. This fit the bill as did the burgers. However the boneless chicken wings were nothing short of TERRIBLE. They were bad chicken nuggets. No sauce or flavor. No idea why we discussed hot vs. Mild. Don't order the Caesar salad if you want a traditional Caesar. This was covered in bacon. Not impressed.

Other members of our family seem to like this spot but I have found it to be just ok. Service is fine, location fine, interior is fine but the food is just ok. Not bad, just ok. There are other pizza places that have better more flavorful pizza. Again, not bad, but not memorable in anyway.

We live in Cincinnati now, where the Italian food is mostly terrible, and I miss being able to go into a random Italian restaurant in a random strip mall and getting decent Italian food, like on Long Island, where I grew up. So we were pleasantly surprised when we happened upon this place on the way back from the beach.... More

I thought the pizza was fabulous! We had two kinds: a chicken/spinach with a cream sauce and a standard pepperoni. I have to say it is the best pizza I have had in a very long time. They were cooked perfectly with just a touch of crispness to the crust. I normally leave crust in my plate; not this time!... More

We make our a point to drop in for pizza any time we are within a hundred miles. Pepperoni Delight is amazing.
