Gus & Us Grill

Hi everyone! It’s Meagan, and I’m here to review Gus & Us Grill. They are located at the intersection of Outer Drive and Southfield in Allen Park (near the Fairlane Green Shopping Center) and offer a wide variety of Greek and American cuisine.

Appetizer – French Onion Soup

Gus & Us French Onion Soup in Allen Park, Michigan

I ordered a crock of french onion soup to start my meal. Traditionally, french onion soup consists of caramelized onions and large croutons in an onion-based broth. It is topped with Gruyere cheese. The rendition I received was no different. At $4.29 for the crock, it was extremely worth ordering. The cheese was beautifully melted both inside and around the rim of the bowl. Despite being just soup, I found it to be filling. I highly suggest this soup, even to picky eaters that normally avoid onions.

Entrée – Gyro Platter

I decided to order a gyro platter as my entrée. The meal consists of gyro components outside of the pita. As you can see, even when stuffing the pita full of vegetables and meat, there is an overflow of lamb to eat on its own. I paid $9.49 for this meal, and it was so much food that I could not finish my plate. The meat was tender, the pita was soft and fresh, and the french fries were cooked to perfection. The gyro served at Gus & Us is the best I have ever eaten.
