If you are on Rt 33 in Manalapan, NJ and are looking for a place to eat, stopping at Gus's Diner is an option worth taking. Just ate there yesterday for the 1st time since it re-opened. They renovated the place and I must say they did a great job. It was definitely needed. I had been to the diner before the renovation and liked the food but it just wasn't a very inviting place to eat. If you are more concerned about the quality than the cost then Gus' is worth checking out if you are on Rt 33 looking for a place to eat. It is like any diner with many options but it appears the kitchen is trying to create appetizing meals and not just produce food quickly like other diners. You may pay a couple more dollars than you would expect at a diner but I think it is worth the money. Every time I drive by this diner the parking lot is packed. It is not a very big place but obviously others must feel the same way I do.
