Very friendly people with a wonderful atmosphere. Food is great. Love the big salad! Was camping at Hornsby Hollow with a group of 12. Staff was very friendly and we were all seated together. Food was received in a timely manner. One of our fellow campers has to eat gluten free and she had to problem getting something. The inside... More

Uncle Gus's is a great, local bbq restaurant. My family goes to eat there all the time and I'd definitely our preferred restaurant in the area!

We had a early dinner with another couple. At first we were concerned because there was only 1car in the parking lot. Turned our we got lucky. By the time we finished the lot was almost full. I had the smoked chicken/ brisket combo. It was great. I'll have to say the chicken was the best I've ever had. Everything... More

While camping last year, friends invited us to eat at Uncle Gus's. They raved about their smoked meatloaf. Tried it....okay on my account, but the brisket and pulled pork is great. Pies even better. Love the rustic decor.

I was really impressed with this small town restaurant. If this place were in a big city, people would flock to it. If you are in the area- you must go. Very clean. Excellent, friendly service. Really cool antique decor. And the food is fantastic!!! I had the beef brisket sandwich- YUM! Rarely do I eat something in a restaurant... More

Visiting with family while camping at Hornsby hollow. All of our side items were amazing. Best mashed potatoes I've had in awhile. We all had different cuts of bbq. Pulled pork was decent, ribs were okay, and the smoked meatloaf was decent. Staff was super nice but overworked. Dont know if this is somewhere we'd try again but it was... More

Spending a little time with this collection ranging from the old firetruck, the real live caboose, eclectic "down south" collectables, and even boat parts hanging overhead is as much fun at the food! Barbecue is authentic, sides are good and the menu offers enough variety that a non-BQ diner will be happy. If you can't decide you can try the... More

I ordered the bacon cheeseburger and it was good. Others in my party had the pulled pork sandwich and ribs which they said were good as well. Our table was dirty and had not been wiped down. The servers were friendly but overworked. The restaurant needs more staff during the dinner hours!

I ate lunch here on a recent business trip and the Prime Rib sandwich was excellent! This is certainly nothing fancy; but the service is good and friendly, and the food is good at a reasonable price. It is a little off the beaten path so I was surprised it was as crowded as it was. Certainly worth stopping at... More
