Reminiscent of the old drive-in. Always good, fresh food. Burgers, hot dogs, fries and even salads. Good service. Car night on Saturday is fun. Great ice cream, too!

Gus's has some really great diner food! I ate here long before I was vegetarian, so I can say both the meat and vegetarian options are good. The ice cream (actually I think they call it custard), is ridiculously good. I would go here just for an order of friends and ice cream. Cute place too.

I have only had the burgers but they are really good. They can get busy so plan ahead. I believe this is a seasonal place so remember that in the winter. The service is good and offers that old-style drive in appeal. Not to mention cool cars and bikes that are hanging out there on the weekend. A good safe... More

Saw this place advertised on a billboard sign on the side of highway. It's off the highway a bit but well worth it! Fast & friendly service! We had the Italian beef sandwich, crinkle cut fries & Swiss chocolate custard. Delicious!! Huge portions & reasonably priced menu. They close for the season at the end of October so be aware...

A great place to eat while listening to music of the 50's. The food is always good, the music is great and the place is decorated with pictures and signs to take you back in time. Only con is that they close on Oct. 30th for the winter.

Great drive in cuisine. Car themed burgers are the bomb. Vienna Beef chili dogs are crave worthy. Cool cars that show up are a plus!

If it wasn't for the faded roadside billboard on the Interstate, we would have missed this gem. Although they no longer serve you from your car, I thought we were in a scene from Happy Days. The place was very authentic, extremely clean and good food reasonably priced.

Best food ever. We will be sad when the close for the winter. 😢. The best thing about springs is they open up again. 😍

Great nostalgic place to stop in the summer for a quick meal or ice cream. In particular the gyro sandwich & the Italian beef sandwich are very good.
