Welcome to Gus’s BBQ, a South Pasadena landmark that has been lighting up Route 66 for almost 70 years! We’ve made it our mission to welcome you into our home with the finest food, atmosphere, and southern hospitality California has to offer.
Named one of the top 10 BBQ joints on the West Coast, Gus’s offers all the regional BBQ favorites: Beer Braised Texas Brisket, slow smoked St. Louis
Spare Ribs, Memphis Style Baby Backs, and Carolina Style Pulled Pork. Not in the mood for classic BBQ? Our menu ranges from
gourmet burgers and sandwiches to heaping salads, unique appetizers and desserts. There truly is something for everyone at Gus’s.
Remodeled with a sleek, rustic look in 2007, we honor Gus’s notable past with historic photos framed throughout the restaurant and its famous, original neon sign still illuminating Fair Oaks avenue. Our full bar boasts an extensive line up of draft beers, craft cocktails, wine and, of course, an impressive list of bourbons. So come on in, it would be our pleasure to serve you!
