Gus’s has been serving true Southern hospitality and some of the best real pit BBQ for years. Housed in the iconic Claremont Packing House, Gus’s is a tribute to Southern life, where family, tradition and celebration are of the utmost importance. The menu is filled with traditional Southern cooking, complemented by an impressive range of whiskies, wines, cocktails and local craft beers.

Every single thing on the menu is something to tantalize your tastebuds. We recommend the Cast Iron Cornbread, Spicy Smothered Hot Wings, Deviled Eggs and Pulled Pork Nachos for a tasty appetizer. The barbequed meats are seasoned overnight. Then, the BBQ is smoked low and slow for up to 14 hours. Whole pecan logs help create their signature smoke flavor. The best part is they only smoke enough BBQ for the day. That means everything is going to be fresh as can be and fall off the bone.

Gus’s is a space for a warm welcome, a cold mint julep, and a big plate of the best flavors from the American South and Midwest. So whether you’re looking for a casual meal or a fun night out, swing by Gus’s BBQ restaurant!
