This is a landmark greasy spoon on "the corner" across from the university. It is always a stop for us when we visit c'ville. Gus is no more, but the one eyed cheeseburger that carries his name is still #1 in our hearts and on the menu 45 years after we graduated from UVA. They offer a wide variety of... More

This place is a hole in the wall, but fun to watch the college kids coming in and out. Very quick service and he makes to order right in front of you.

This is a working class type place man, no wussies in here. Just kidding really, but you should not be put off by the simplicity of the place. We stopped in for breakfast, just a short 2 block walk down from our hotel, Graduate Hotel staff recommended it. The table side of the place was not open, so we had... More

You can't beat an after hours Gus Burger and fries at the White Manor on a weekend night. In addition to the great food, the customers will keep you entertained with their lively banter.

Searching for a place to have breakfast. White Spot was open. We opened the door and glanced inside. Despite having ravenous appetites for breakfast, that one look was enough to send us scurrying away. Dirt, flies flitting here and there (apparently well nourished on the grease-splattered walls and counters), and the overall griminess of the place were a distinct turnoff.... More

Stopped in here for late night dinner and tried the Gus burger it was pretty good. When I reached my destination at Massanutten resort they asked if we stopped there even before we could say we did so the name is well known ... will go again

We came back for the helluva mess platter as always. The chef recognized us even though we had not been there for over a year. Great on a Sunday morning before students wake. Of course, the late night is awesome too.

The Gus Burger was a hit! You can't beat a cheeseburger with a fried egg on top. Seating is limited with a few tables and stools, but we were ready to take it to go had a table not been available. The burger was juicy, the French fries crisp, and the staff friendly.
