We ordered 3 lbs of brisket to go as we were hosting a special dinner and wanted to have a nice tender brisket option to go along with our passover meal. We were so happy with the brisket that I am sure it will become a family tradition.

Has a touch of a 50's feel to it--on the dark side, booths without table cloths (perfect for a rib place). The rood is really very good--ribs and corn bread especially. Service is excellent.

We spent a few days in Pasadena in this was our "go to" dinner. We new before we even arrived in Pasadena that we would have first night dinners at Gus's. We were not disappointed, the BarBQ was excellent and the food choices were great. The service could have been better organized. There were a lot of servers running around, but each time we wanted something we always waited a bit. But you come for the the BarBQ and Gus's delivers. So plan on indulging you BarBQ cravings.mtry their many excellent sides...

My sister lives down the street from Gus's. When I visit from NYC, this is one of our favorite places to go. The food is delicious--you will never look at "salad" the same way again. We always enjoy the brisket and the sausages. Although it is crowded (hey, it's great, right), the staff do a really good job at keep the guests happy. r
