This is our first stop every time we visit New York. Gussy's food is fantastic, super tasty and served hot and fast, street side. The owner has an exceptional memory of his customers and recalled our past visit, immediately, from nine months ago. Highly recommended...More

Food is excellent. Price is right. Portions are big. Nico always has a smile and gives a warm welcome. If you can, get there before noon or after one to beat the rush. Otherwise the line moves fast and well worth the wait.

I have been here before but went again. I ordered the Hercules chicken platter. It is simply the best. And there is so much food. Chicken, rice, fries, salad. I will probably try and go here anytime I go to NYC. It is that good.

As seen on IE, they sell a "lamb on rice platter" that isn't really lamb. We liked it, but guess we were fooled along with everyone else.

No one does it better. First off, the main man is awesome. Great guy. Works his tail off. Be prepared to wait in line- sometimes half a block. You are rewarded for your patience. Great food. Anything on the menu is good. Cannot go wrong....More
