Gus's has been around for quite a long time. More of a locals joint! Steak sandwiches are a little greezzy but tastey. Place is old and looks a little dirty but they are always busy. Seems like a local favorite but not mine!

The food is great (especially the cheese steaks and other subs). Prices are excellent. My fav is the cheeseburger sub with fries. Though the fries are frozen, they are always very tasty. All subs are made with very fresh ingredients. Folks of all walks of...More

Always hard to find a good cheesesteak outside of Philly, but Gus's is good. Reliable, satisfyingly hole-in-the-wall.

Grew up in Lancaster and when I want a solid cheesesteak, I go here. It's always what I expect and exactly what I want!
