We were reading up on St. Louis and heard about this "great pretzel" place. So, we went on a Saturday afternoon there was a line, but nothing too long. We waited. They do a good job of posting signage to help you know what to...More

Good service. Prices reasonable. I wasn't blown away by the pretzels which tasted and looked like pretzels you could get anywhere. That being said they weren't bad, if you are in the area and want pretzels...

Gus's has been around for nearly 100 years and there's a reason why. Best pretzels in the Lou, for sure. What could be better for a carbolicious snack than some salty bends and cheesy sauce. Aaahhhh. Try the Deli sandwich, too. Ham, turkey, cheese hot...More

Walked over from the Anheuser Busch Brewery, a short 10 minute journey. It was cool to watch the production line as we waited. Ordered the cinnamon sugar and garlic butter pretzels. Delicious! Wish I could've gone back to try the pretzel dog or the sandwiches....More

This is a St. Louis landmark. Cute downtown neighbor hood.. Mom and Pop spot for a quick bite. Not a lot of shop space so the line can sometimes wrap around the building.

since they are a walk-up counter and do not offer tables for sitting, I would assume not since you really aren't hanging there for long periods of time.
