Gus & Gus Place, Rehoboth Beach

Rating: ★★★★☆

IMG_6461.JPGGus & Gus Place is an old-fashioned boardwalk diner located 15 South Boardwalk, Rehoboth Beach, DE. We were nearly scared off by the classic, but faded and drab interior that had a number of flies, but we’re glad we stuck around for the food. This place provides excellent value and classic, basic and delicious boardwalk fare. I ordered the fried clams, which while nowhere near as good as the ones from my favorite spot on Long Island (Bigelow’s Seafood), were a solid deal at $7.70. My friend’s shrimp platter was a similar price. Another friend really enjoyed his fried chicken, and the burgers, which range from $3 to $5.50, are a steal, if a little on the small side. The best looking item at our table was the soft shell crab sandwich, which was also a great deal at $9.75. Be aware, however, that it is cash only (they have an ATM, though) and they don’t do separate checks. That said, this is a very solid and cost-effective spot to grab delicious beach fare in an authentic, classic spot- it sure beats the concession stands that I grew up with at Jones Beach, NY.
