Inspired by the many regions of the South
Family owned and operated since 1946, today Chris and John Bicos keep the family tradition of hospitality alive at Gus’s. As brothers and co-owners, they grew up working in their parent’s restaurants and quickly developed a passion for creating memorable moments through the magic of great food, lively company and shared connections. Growing up in a household full of constant celebrations, friends, and family, they learned that the art of true hospitality is born out of the joy of connecting with each other over a shared meal. Their youth inspired their love for food and a strong sense of community, but their obsession with BBQ and the unique patience required to develop authentic flavors is what excited them to share their craft with others. Like many of the best things in life, honest BBQ takes time and discipline. Therefore, Chris and John journeyed through the most BBQ-loving states in the US to learn from the best and to serve you never-rushed, hand-rubbed, high-quality, wood-smoked perfection. As an extension of our family, our hope is that with each bite and every interaction with our amazing teams, you get to experience our commitment to true southern hospitality.
Gus’s is a tribute to the signature hospitality of the South, where the importance of a shared meal means everything.
We treat our dining room as an extension of our home, a place to entertain and welcome guests who choose to spend their time with us.
There are no shortcuts to great BBQ and we’ve made it our mission to stay authentic to the craft.
All of our meats are seasoned overnight and smoked low and slow over whole pecan logs for up to 14 hours. Our rubs and sauces are made from scratch daily, and when it comes to inspiration we look toward the simplicity of a true Southern kitchen and let the food speak for itself.
We’ve been around a long time and couldn’t have done it without the support of our community.
Gus’s continuously strives to give back, proudly supporting local schools, charities and non-profit organizations. If you have a sponsorship or fundraiser you would like Gus’s to be a part of, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
