Two steak dinners for just over 20 bucks; plus dessert. Can't beat the deal. You will leave feeling stuffed!

Been a classic in Tuolumne County for years. Multiple steak choices, large baked potatoes, and bourbon. For me the atmosphere takes me back to slower time.

This restaurant is not a dieter option. But if you want a great steak, cooked exactly the way you want it, this is your place. The meat is very high quality! I have been there several times and had the pork chops (soooo deliciously prepared), and the filet mignon, and a rib eye. Never once have I left, hungry, unhappy,... More

Excellent value. 2 dinner deal is fantastic and perfect for their variety and economy. Food is excellent and Gus is ever present and lends a VERY friendly presence to his restaurant. There are some very long term employees at this establishment and that speaks volumes to me. I always feel very welcome and am always treated well here. Great for... More

The items were all store bought and predone. The fondue was like FDA surplus american cheese melted down. The garlic bread was EXACTLY like safeway garlic bread, that had been put in the microwave. The two carrots and the two pieces of cucumber were store bought pickled vegetables (Safeway again?) The soup was such a miniscule serving that it was... More

Hate giving a bad review but honesty is a virtue and I can't steer my readers wrong. I'm sorry to say but this place is not worth the money even when you buy early bird special of two meals for $21.95. The vegetables are way over cooked mushy bland flavorless need I say more! The chefs special look like it... More

Being from Michigan, I have not been to many restaurants in Sonora, but tonight we went to Gus's. I have driven by, noticed it always busy. I see why. We had an excellent waitress, Heather. We arrived before seven, so we were in time for their early bird special. For a little over 20 dollars, you get two entrees (out... More

We went at happy hour for their specials and to get back to Angels Camp before dark, the roads are narrow at times between the two cities. The owner was supervising the crew and helping! Service was excellent, food was good, and prices were reasonable. Locals love the place. They have a separate bar area which was busy as well.We... More

They have an early bird 2 for 21.95 special from 3-7 pm. Many choices, food was excellent. Great sourdough bread with a cheese fondue dip. Everything was full of flavor. Generous portions. The service is outstanding, it was busy and still we had great service. You can't beat their early bird special; it even includes dessert! I would like to... More
