Gus Who?

For you local C’ville townies out there, here’s a question: When you think of “late-night” food, what really makes you salivate?

Okay well maybe for you…

BUT for me, I’d say nothing beats the little hole in the wall on UVA’s Corner like¬†White Spot. A barber shop turned late night burger palace, it’s known for its famous burger–the Gus Burger. It is a Burger. Egg. Double Burger. Double Egg. Cheese. French Fries. Onion Rings. G-U-S B-U-R-G-E-R. Did I say Eggg?

Don’t let the exterior fool you. This hidden gem is a late night delight. Stumble inside, grab a stool at the counter, and order the famous burger w/ egg. This combination is magical. Although weary at first, one bite and you will be hooked. It’s just like that chicken and waffle duo that has transformed the meaning of BRUNCH.¬†Oweeee I am getting excited for Saturday.


This place should seriously earn a spot on Diners, Drive-In’s, and Dives. It’s certainly a dive with late night burger and fries to actually get excited about in the taxi ride over.

It’s one of those places where you see an old friend, start slingin’ burgers with the guys, laugh at the pictures of other people on the wall, and watch the college freshman’s pupils dilate when they bite into this C’ville favorite for the first time.

Oh and don’t even bother looking at the menu–just say “I’ll have the Gus pleassse.” Leaving you with my healthy version of the Gus: No Bull Gus recipe. I used No Bull Burgers which are a favorite of mine. You can find these on the East Coast, but locally as well:


  • Whole Foods
  • Rebeccas
  • Integral Yoga Natural Foods (Try their smoothies)
  • C’ville Market
  • Market Street Market
  • Foods of All Nations
  • Relay Foods
  • Horse and Buggie


  • The Nook
  • South Street Brewery
  • Rapture
  • Trinity
  • Beer Run
  • Bodos Bagels
  • UVA Hospital Cafe

A GULP of munchies later:



Yields 1

1 No Bull Burger

1 Slice of Turkey Bacon (Leave the bacon out if you want to make it vegetarian)

1 Handful of Arugula

1 Egg

1/2 Avocado Sliced

Ground Pepper

Cook the No Bull Burger according to the package. I baked it, but you can fry or microwave. When it is halfway done, start cooking the turkey bacon. Once the bacon is cooked, crack the egg (I made it sunny side up). Place the Arugula on plate. Place burger on plate. Top with bacon, egg, and avocado. Grind the pepper. (Also good with siracha if you want to spice things up!)
