It would be too simple to say that Gus' is just another restaurant. That would be like saying Greece is just another country. Greek cuisine is part of the entire Greek culture. It is also part of Mediterranean cuisine. It is a culture which embodies a desire to live life to its fullest, a determination to achieve your highest goals, and a dedication to friends and family. Can you find all of that during a meal at Gus'? Sure, why not?
Gus Deligiannidis and his wife, Effie, are the owners and founders of two full-service restaurants, Gus' House of Pizza in Kershaw, SC and Gus' Family Pizza Restaurant in Lancaster, SC. The restaurant in Kershaw, a cozy and charming occupation on the corner of Hampton and Marion Streets, was established in 1988. Before this, the building provided space for a jewelry store as well as a pawnshop. Throughout the years, several menu changes and major building renovations have changed the "look" of the corner pizza parlor. Nonetheless, the most important elements have remained the same; our delicious home-style pizza made from an old family recipe, true heart-of-the-Greek-home dishes and recipes, a warm family-type atmosphere, and our friendly service.
Gus' Family Pizza Restaurant in Lancaster was established three years later and has been serving Lancaster and surrounding areas ever since. Even though they are just 16 miles apart, customers visit both locations. Gus' in Lancaster has a slight country flair. We serve Country Style Steak with homemade gravy and serve some favorite country vegetables.
We can offer you a traditional American or Greek Menu, from Appetizers to Desserts. We use only the freshest and finest ingredients. We have prepared an extensive list of foods for you to choose from. Choose from traditional American or traditional Greek cuisine.
According to numerous medical studies Mediterranean people, and especially Greek people, have lower risk of heart attacks and low cholesterol levels. It is believed this is due to the wide use of our virgin olive oil in traditional Greek recipes and methods of cooking. Needless to say, we follow these same steps and traditions for our valued customers. Thank you for being our friends and making Gus' a success. -- Effie, Gus, Family and Staff
