Had the turkey club which was served hot, also spring rolls which came with several sauces for dipping. Each sauce was great. Cold local beer on draft. Great service. Moderate price.

We ate at the Gunnisack several times on a recent trip to Gunnison and were not disappointed! The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was equally as good. Both the owners and the waitstaff were so welcoming. They visited with us and answered any questions...More
