Food was okay but kind of pricey for Mexican entrees located in a corner strip mall location . Inside was very nice with a bar type atmosphere.

Pretty good food. Could use a little more spice. Good margaritas! Service was ok. Atmosphere was bright. Restaurant was clean.

I made a Monday afternoon stop here for a late lunch, as I haven't been here in a while despite living in the Hales Corners / Muskego area and shopping regularly next door at Wolf's Pools. Glad I did! While chatting with Gus about the restaurant and kids gifts/toys from Mexico, I decided to look up his place here on... More

Friendly environment, great service and food. I regularly visit Gus' and the food and margaritas are always great! Fast service - I always get my food hot and fast! I highly recommend Gus'. Dinner specials every night. Prices are very reasonable and you get a lot of food for the money! Enjoy!

Stopped at Gus's Saturday evening about 7 pm. We were immediately seated in a nice booth. Everything was great. Food came out so fast we couldn't believe it. Ordered the Mexican pizza as an appetizer which arrived in a few minutes-- really. My three chicken tacos were excellent and my wife's burrito was good. The whole bill was $19. Just... More

Don't waste your money or time eating at Gus'. There isn't anything quaint about the big open dining room. Food & margaritas are awful. Service is ok. Management yells at wait staff within ear shot of guests. Chips & salsa is only brought to your table after you have placed your food order and they charge if you want more.... More

The food is good. There's plenty of paved parking. They have a side patio. The Margaritas could be a little stronger. I've been there and the server was very friendly and another time not even a smile.

Walked in, place was dead. Heard people yelling at each other in the kitchen with music blaring. No host appeared. Looked over the menu. Strange mix. Walked out & left.

Went there 4+ years ago and was disappointed. Was at the car show TODAY 6/8/16 and decided to give it a whirl. Sat down and restaurant was about 1/4 full. Waited 10 minutes for our waiter to come over (appeared to be only 2 servers). Ordered drinks and food at the same time. Waited 25 minutes for drinks and chips.....food... More

Made the mistake of taking the Family to Gus's after a 3+ year hiatus. I figured the last horrible experience must have been a fluke, WRONG! Exact same lousy food, service, and drinks. If you are looking to be duped by someone claiming to know good Mexican food go to your local Taco Bell. Seriously terrible food.
