We had Gus's deliver (which is free) and it was the best decision. The hamburgers were juicy and not dry at all, and the fries were addictive. The price is not bad considering everything includes fries, and the delivery guy was so nice!

Classic steamed sandwiches. Our family demands regular visits when in town. A hotpot on football Saturdays.

Gus's was next door to our hotel, Hilton Garden Inn, but with no signage we didn't even know it! Food was good, but not great. Good french fries. Seems to be very popular due to its long-standing history at UT and the patronage by Vol...More

Great Knoxville-style steamed deli sandwiches. The place is ultra-crowded after Tennessee football games so there will be a long wait on those occasions. Also, it can be a little less than sparkling-clean. Finally, all sandwich orders come with fries whether you want them or not....More
