Gus and Us Grill

Today on the Bite Tonight: Gus and Us Grill

Gus & Us Grill is a Greek restaurant located on the corner of Southfield Freeway and Outer Dr. in Allen Park, MI (right across from the Fairlane Green shopping mall on “the hill”). Gus & Us used to be the Opa restaurant years ago, but has transformed into a great new eatery. Gus & Us offers a full menu including Greek favorites, daily specials, Italian & Barbeque dishes, sandwiches & wraps, salads & soups, burgers and Coney’s, appetizers, broasted chicken and pork chops, and breakfast. Whatever you are in the mood for, Gus & Us has it. Josh and I happened to stop in for breakfast. See how they ranked.

My Pick

Country Omelette: Three eggs with onions, green pepper, sausage and hash browns inside, smothered with sausage gravy. Tip: Order the hash browns extra crispy. Ordering the hash browns well done ensures that you still get a crunch after the sausage gravy saturates the omelette. The Country Omelette is one of my favorites. There’s something about the “surprise” of all the goodies that are stuffed inside. The sausage gravy is rich, salty, and velvety. Delicious!

Josh’s Pick

George’s Special Skillet: Served with two eggs (over medium), hash browns, green pepper, onions, topped with Cheddar cheese, and bacon. I don’t know who George is, but he has a pretty tasty skillet. I highly recommend any one of the three skillets from Gus & Us. This skillet has everything you could want all in one. When you break the yolk from the eggs, it drips down on top of the crispy hash browns, veggies, and bacon and acts as a sauce. The bacon was crispy, sweet and salty and the cheese covered every little bit of the skillet ingredients. On point!

Service was really good and our server was really nice and did a good job at recommending the skillet. The menu is reasonably priced for the portion and quality of food you get. The dining room was clean, updated, and full of people. It’s always a good sign when a place has a lot of customers. Gus & Us is doing something right and it’s comforting and refreshing when the servers know the “regulars.” They serve breakfast all day and their menu is pretty impressive for a smaller Greek restaurant. You can really taste the love and passion put into their food with each bite. Skip your usual night out at (insert chain restaurant here) and try Gus & Us.

B Boomers

Located on Southfield Rd. in Allen Park, MI, B Boomers is a local bar dishing out good food with big portions. Getting more bang for your buck is always a good feeling and a lot of spots aren’t as generous as they used to be. B Boomers offers a typical bar menu consisting of pizza, burgers sandwiches, soups and salads, and fried favorites. With flat screen T.V.’s, cold beers, and a full bar, B Boomers is the place to enjoy a nice dinner and watch your favorite game. Ma and I decided to grab a quick bite before heading to the Allen Park Street Fair a couple weeks ago. See how they ranked.

Reuben Sandwich: Thinly slice corned beef with sauerkraut on marble rye served with thousand island dressing and homemade chips. The corned beef was lean and juicy which made it tasty, but also made the bottom half of the bread soggy (I hate that). It’s sometimes the risk you take when enjoying a nice Reuben sandwich. The home made chips were really delicious and were served warm (so you know they were fresh).  The corned beef was stacked high and was enough for Ma and I to share. The sauerkraut added a nice bite to the salty corned beef. I really like how the sandwich was served on newspaper paper. It adds character and uniqueness.

I sometimes forget about B Boomers since they are one of the last restaurants before you hit Southfield Freeway and because they re-opened under new ownership a little over a year ago. Since rediscovering it’s charm, I have a feeling that they are my new local favorite. My next visit will be to try the pizza (which I hear is amazing). B Boomers is a great place if you are looking for good food and service at a local price. Stop in for live music, events including fantasy football, trivia, and fundraisers, and great food and drink specials.
