Fair cheese steak, good fish sub. Tight and dated location but not bad for a small neighborhood sub shop. Limited menu but I like this better than a franchised subway. Not fine dining but good sub on a hungry night.

I've been coming here since I was a Kid. Capt. Gus was always sitting in the back peeling Onions or cutting up Tomatoes or doing something.... and when we would sit down, he'd come over to our Table and start telling us a Story or two about his Fishing Excursions....... Sadly, Capt. Gus passed away a few months back but the Food is STILL EXCELLENT and his Kids, Nick & Phyllis, still carry on the Business.

You owe it to yourself to visit Capt Gus Steak Shop .... sit down at a Booth and look at the Pictures and newspaper articles all around the Shop and get to know Capt Gus and his Family and see WHYYY he was such a Great Guy who truly CARED about his Customers and made you feel like Family.

The cheesesteaks are fabulous. Only problem is they are a little on the small size. But the flavor and quality are exceptional!

I look forward to a cheese steak from Captain Gus every time I visit Lancaster. However, this time the sandwich wasn't as good. The bun wasn't as long or thick, cheese was scanty, onions didn't taste grilled like I remember, the sauce wasn't as flavorful, and the meat was scrimped on.

I guess the economy effected the shop. However, Captain Gus was found in the back chopping onions. Swapping story with him is the attraction anymore.

I went to Captain Gus's Steak Shop because a friend recommanded it. I ordered, the cook took my money, then without washing her hands she started handling the food. I requested my money returned and i left. Sorry Captain Gus, but I won't be back, you can have your restaurant, it dirt and your un clean cook.
