As the holiday season draws closer, it’s the time of the year when we give thanks for friends and family. At Gus’s Keystone Family Restaurant in Ephrata, there are many reasons to give thanks.

At Gus’s, the accent is on “family,” and your family is always welcomed by Gus’s family, including Gus Kourgelis, his wife Eleni, daughters Lemonia (Lem) and Evangelia (Lia), and son-in-law Dino Papazekos. They have a knack for sharing all their favorite family recipes and greeting you with a warm hello. It seems like everyone who works at Gus’s and their customers are part of the same family.

You might notice that Gus’s has undergone a facelift. There is a brand new refreshed exterior look, along with an expanded foyer with more seating for guests. Everything seems brighter and sunnier, with lots of natural light.

Fall offers all your favorite harvest favorites, like pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, apple pie, and mincemeat pie. With Thanksgiving just weeks away, be sure to order a delicious dessert for your family gathering. Gus’s will be closed on Thanksgiving Day so everyone can celebrate with their families.
