Great nostalgic place to stop in the summer for a quick meal or ice cream. In particular the gyro sandwich & the Italian beef sandwich are very good.

Gus's is a local institution, they still have car hops - no roller-skates though. limited menu but very good food and very reasonably priced. Extra fun on the weekend when all the classic cars and roadsters show up for public viewing.

It is worth dining in to check out the decorations. Mini Tacos were good. You can eat outside if you wish so if you are traveling with dogs that is a plus.

They have nights when you can come out and view tons of old classic cars. It gets really busy so be ready to wait in line, but it is worth the trip.

My family and I go here whenever we can. They usually close for the winter so we miss them then. But it just makes it so much better when they reopen. Food is wonderful, the decor unique and I believe they host car shows in the summer.

Wonderful old time drive in style restaurant. Flavor of the day ice cream (custard), great shakes and sundaes. Burgers to Gyros - all good! Closed during the winter, which is too bad cause I'm sure they would be busy year round!

I have been coming here for years! Their custard and malts are amazing. My favorite is the Banana Malt. On some Saturdays they have old fashioned, but fixed up cars drive in for display, pretty cool!

The custard is great, the fries are addictive, the atmosphere is very well-designed and fun. But what blew me away was the presence of an actual vegetarian burger option on the menu! And a tasty one, at that!
