There was 11 of us and we wanted to stay in and eat. We ordered a lot of food and the order was fulfilled perfectly (usually with an order that large, something is missing or wrong - not here!) And it was gooooooooood! All of...More

We have been to Shaw’s in Santa Maria and Sideways 2 in Buellton, and Gus’s stacks up well against both. The tri tip with pico de Gallo on garlic bread is awesome. Same with chicken and rib. Fries are non descriptive but then you came...More

Good lunch spot during the week! The chicken sandwich and cheeseburger are both fantastic! Fries or onion rings; you can't go wrong with either choice. The lats are always good and they really are different from a normal chicken wing. The Tri tip and brisket...More

It was a great stop on our day out exploring the lake. We had ribs that melted off the bone. The portions were large but not overwhelming. We liked the simplicity of the food and the large selections of side dishes.

These may have been the best ribs I've eaten. The meals are served with sides - I had the beans & the grilled veggies. My husband had the pulled pork & it was also delicious. We'd recommend this place for the food. The service was...More

This is so much more than "just" a sports bar - though there are several giant screen tvs and a bar. This is REAL BBQ. Pay attention to the specials -- if you arrive on a night that there is smoked turkey - get it!...More
