“Early bird special an excellent value!”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Ate here before going to SRT performance. Service excellent. Where can you get 2 meals including cheese fondue, great bread, soup or salad, entree with veggies and potato for $20? That's not $20 each, that is for BOTH meals. My advice--tip the wait staff as if you paid more--they deserve it! I ordered salmon. My date ordered tri tip with lots of yummy mushrooms. Gus is there to greet his customers. What a perfect meal! Thanks Gus and his staff.

There is a special from 4-7pm $19.95 for two dinners, you get soup and salad and your entree and a small dessert. Quaint atmosphere.

“Dinner with husband”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Gu's is a great family sit down place. I love their cheese dip and fresh bread. Bread pudding for dessert is the best. weekly special 2 dinners for $20. Great deal.

“Things have changed!”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

My wife and I live in Sonora and have been dining at Gus' since the early 2000s. We've dined there at least six times a year. It seems Gus' has slipped downhill in the last three years, starting with the fondue which was watery and only warm, at best, during our most recent visit. In the past the salads were always our favorite part of the meal, always cold, crisp and nicely presented. Now, the salads are about 1/3 the amount they used to be, the lettuce is wilted and the tomatoes used were rock hard and not even close to being ripe. We ordered from the "Specials" menu. I had the shrimp (there were only four and they were very small) and my wife ordered the calamari strips (the calamari was mostly the batter used to coat them, tasteless and warm at best). Our waiter was marginal, at best . . . we had to call him over several times to relight the candle for the fondue, etc. Gus is a great guy and an active owner, always talking to his customers.........maybe we'll give the place another try in six months and order off of the "Regular" menu. Sorry Gus, but the quality and service have really slipped a lot.

“Plain Exterior, Great Food”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

At first glance, Gus's isn't much to look at, but the food is great. Down home cooking with large portions and fair prices.
