Gus’s is a place everyone should go to at least once. Their specialty is the 4 or 5 inch hot dogs with the works. I try to stop by several times in the good weather.

I have stopped by Gus's more than once, but I have never tried the hotdogs with everything. I've always had their burgers, which I enjoyed. Since it apparently specializes in "hotdogs" I decided to give them a try. "Everything" means a load of chili sauce...More

I hadn't been here since I was a child, & my husband, who is from Buffalo, NY had never been. We both had the mini dogs w/the works, & they did not disappoint. Definitely going back!

totally unique experience both culinary and ambience. This place has barely changed in over 60 years, but you don't mess with a good thing. The price is right and the hot dogs are great. The greek burgers are excellent as well as the sausage burgers....More

Gus's serves up some hot hot dogs. They are tiny (one person can usually eat 5-6 on their own). They are awesome with cheese sauce or on their own. The sausage and peppers sandwich is also spectacular. The hot dogs are only 90 cents each...More

This is a local eatery with a walk-up window, handwritten signs, picnic tables, and some bar stools inside. Even though it's not much to look at, it's worth the trip. They serve their signature snappy little hot dogs with meat sauce, mustard and onions (no...More
