Gus & Georges Spaghetti & Steak House

4312 Virginia Beach Blvd, at corner of Thalia & Virginia Beach Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA 23452   Tel 757 340 6584

Cuisine: Steak | Barbecue

A great little place to eat. I’d passed by this place for years and years. I’d always thought it was a tourist trap; I’d never thought I’d be eating there. Upon arrival I encountered a smell of great delights. A scent of some deep-fried goodness! With this aroma, I knew that anything fried would probably be very good. So with that in mind, we ordered the combo appetizer platter which included deep-fried mushrooms, chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks. The batter was very good on these items: it smelled good and tasted even better. They weren’t too greasy at all. I ordered the combination seafood platter which included fried trout and fried flounder, coleslaw, a bowl of spaghetti and a salad. Everything was great though the slaw wasn’t the greatest. My girlfriend had the baked spaghetti with meatballs, mushrooms, cheese and pepperoni. I had a taste of it and it was delicious. I usually don’t go out to eat things I can already make at home, but this spaghetti was actually really good. The portion was huge too, so we took some to eat later. Also, the service was great and the atmosphere was cozy. I would recommend this place to people who want something different and don’t want to spend too much money. And if you don’t eat meat, there are various items on their menu such as eggplant parmesan.

The place to go for Pizza and to watch all American sports! The wide screens show wall-to-wall sports and occasionally you can even watch the Rugby! Always busy and noisy. Very reasonably priced and with lots of game machines to keep youngsters entertained. The machines dispense tickets (if you win), which can be exchanged for toys and games.

Yup! Open 24 hours! When I visited, I had 12 eggs – scrambled with ketchup! I had some other stuff as well. My friend had the manager’s special which was more than the “all you can eat” eggs meal. A great meal in such a cafe.
