A recent newsletter published by the Kansas' Explorers' Club recommended Gus' Family Restaurant as an outstanding local establishment in which to have lunch. Unfortunately, I arrived in Hiawatha too late on a Saturday afternoon for lunch, but Gus' was still open and I settled for a cup of coffee and a piece of pecan pie. I wish that I could tell you that it was home-made pie, but that would be stretching the truth. Seemed like a pretty nice place, though, and I would certainly eat here if I was in the area.
but no harm in asking. They have some fast food places, but generally I just pack a sandwich from home.
Favorite Dish: If you must have dessert, drop by the Sonic and get the coconut cream pie shake. It's exquisite!
