I left the capital district about 10 years ago and one of my favorite things to do whenever I returned was to go to Gus's.

Local landmark that has kept the same successful formula for decades. Fast service with low prices keeps people coming back year after year. Go on your cheat day and don't feel guilty about it - 8 on a plate !!!

Great hot dogs, and the meat sauce is amazing. Love the sausage sandwich and the cheeseburgers. Never a bad time.

Greasy spoon type of place but you won't leave hungry for less than $10.00. Greek burger is superb. If your in Watervliet you must try this place.
