Gus & Andy’s Kitchen & Bar. The message on the main restaurant wall- “Our family has been in the restaurant business for over 85 years and 4 generations. Our grandparents are Gus & Andy, and we are twins named after them. Along with our brother Tommy, we run this restaurant as a family affair. Whether we’re grilling your food or pouring your drink. We’re here to carry on our family’s tradition of community-driven hospitality. So pull up a chair and join our family!”
Gus and Andy’s recently opened to serve the community with a fantastic wood-fired grill offering great burgers, sandwiches, and various other menu options. Breakfast is served all day long. The building is the former home of the iconic Rocky Cola Café Diner, has been closed for what feels like forever. The iconic restaurant sat empty at the entrance of Montrose Shopping Park while refurbishments, reevaluation, refiguring, and reconnoitering was carried on for nearly a decade. But finally, passers-by noticed exterior work being done to restore the original entrance façade and the time was nigh. After years of waiting, a new restaurant has moved into the space, bringing the same hearty, feel-good atmosphere and updated and upscaled food for a modern Montrose. At the restaurant’s entrance, guests are immediately greeted with a view of the wood-fired grill in the large, windowed kitchen as they stand surrounded by wire-sided storage caddies of the locally sourced red oak used in the grill. Upstairs in the bar, you can grab a chair at the bar or a private table. They offer a full bar service and have a few specialty drinks. An elevated take on the rum & coke, this cocktail features Mexican Coca-Cola (which uses cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup) and Kōloa Kauaʻi Cacao Rum, a chocolate-flavored rum from Hawaii named Rum and Rocky Cola. The Loop de Loop, consists of rum, Fruitt Loops milk, and honey. Rum & Rocky Cola. These are just a few.
Gus & Andy’s as a whole – what one may expect from a simple little lunch counter restaurant is both satisfying and improved upon, becoming something that will impress and delight in unforeseen ways. As a kid who grew up in Montrose, it’s nice to have a go-to spot in that corner building again. Gus & Andy’s Restaurant & Bar is located at 2201 Honolulu Ave. in Montrose.
