They serve their signature snappy little hot dogs with meat sauce, mustard and onions (no onions for me, though) or you can get them however you want. They also have... More

There are a lot of different hot dogs spots in the Capital District but the is the ONE. Get 6 dogs with everything. You won't be disappointed. The meat sauce is the best in the area.

Breathing in and ingesting all the grease served up here cannot possibly be good for you. I'm referring to their little burgers. Loaded w/grease and onions. I lived "downwind" from Gus' s for over 7 years. On a hot, humid day?? The stench will carry. Seriously, it would smell like the 5th dimension of hell. I know so many believe... More

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. Last year I brought my wife and she was rather disappointed but she said it was because I've been talking about it for years. I wrote it off as a poor one off. Just went... More

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 !!!
