Locals' spot for a good dinner out. Take advantage of the early bird dinners, you won't be disappointed!

This may be old school restaurant but the prime rib is heavenly. I have eaten a lot of prime rib this was the BEST.

We have dined at Gus's Steak House a few times over the past few years. Their early-bird specials are reasonably priced, even though the price has increased over the past couple of years.

We ate here one night while staying in Jamestown. The food was excellent and the prices very reasonable. It's a nice place with a very friendly staff. We wanted a nice steak dinner since it was our anniversary and there weren't any decent restaurants in the area. This place was recommended by a woman I talked to in the lobby... More

This is a really friendly place with kind wait persons in an ambience of old tired decor. The restaurant has quite the reputation and that and two vouchers caused us to celebrate Father's Day at Gus's. The menu is large, in retrospect, probably too large. To start, and included with the entree price, comes what they call fondue. It turns... More

I really like their food at Gus's Steak House but dang, they are so popular that you always have to wait in line out front for what seems like ages when you are starving.

Gus's is a well-established landmark restaurant in Sonora that I've been dining at for several years. I usually order something from their Early Bird specials (2 for $20), or you can also get great meals form the regular menu. I've never walked away hungry or dissatisfied.

We like the 2 for $20 special but don't limit ourselves to this menu. The blackened prime rib is very good. The cheese fondue is always nice while you wait for your main entrée. Another great item is the bread pudding. Mmmm waiting for our table now. It's gonna be good.
