I have visited Gus's Pub several times since my initial review last summer. Unfortunately I feel compelled to downgrade them to two stars on the basis of these visits. The wait to pick up take-out orders continues to be annoyingly long -- not because the food isn't ready, but because the cashiers appear to be disorganized and/or there is a disconnect between the kitchen and the cashiers. This is particularly frustrating when you have ordered hot food. You shouldn't have to wait 10-15 minutes to pick it up. Fewer delays on table service.

Accuracy of orders continues to be an issue, as evidenced by a recent visit where the sandwich I ordered came with (and I was charged for) fries I did not order.

The final straw: on my last visit, my Greek salad featured not one but multiple pieces of iceberg lettuce and green pepper strips with a clearly visible coating of brown slime. For eight bucks it would be nice to get some romaine, but at the very least the iceberg should not be rotten.

Food was great, service friendly. Well go back there again!!! There isn't a lot of seating so you might wait a few minutes but definitely worth it.

A regular toasted tuna grinder is Yummy. Have been going to Gus's since I was a kid. Use to be called the Pizzarama. Love the pizza, grinders, and fish and chips. A very good place to eat that north tasting food you just can't get living down south.

Definitely recommend this Restaraunt. Very good meal for a extremely reasonable price.

It seems like this is where the whole town spends friday night. Like many places in the area it is a bit dated on the inside, but the food was excellent, and prices made it a very good value.

Alright, let me tell you about Gus’s! Plainfield Pizzarama by any other name. When I go back to CT to visit Mom we take her down to Gus’s right away. This pizzeria/restaurant has been in business for decades. Let’s talk pizza! Man it is hard to beat Gus’s pizza – yeah, it’s cheese-laden, loaded with meats, fabulous, kinda sweet sauce, fresh veggies and a crust that’s delicious but neither thin nor too thick. Old school pizza. They been making it this way since forever. All-around good restaurant, with daily specials, salad selections, huge grinder menu, breakfast, lunch and dinner. A lot of bang for the buck in a pleasant, family-friendly environment with good service. Prepare to wait for a seat or for pizza pickups on Friday and Saturday nights. Guss’s is popular in a wide local area! It’s always busy.
