Long before South Pasadena was hip, Gus's was turning out BBQ on Fair Oaks. Open since 1946, the old school restaurant serves regional favories: Texas-style brisket, St. Louis-style ribs, Memphis-style baby backs, and Carolina-style pulled pork. If all that regionalism isn't your style, there's burgers too.
