Gus and Docs Family Restaurant is conveniently located on Highway 57 on the west edge of Ackley, Iowa. When you come to town for the famous Sauerkraut Days; seeing the historic Pioneer Farm and railroad bridge; or an outing at the Prairie Bridges Park and Campground, you should make a stop at Gus and Docs. Gus and Docs traces its heritage to the Tip-Top Drive-In begun by Marv and Jean Walters in 1957. When the drive-in could no longer accommodate the needs of the business, the Walters Family built the Big Chief in the current restaurant building. In January, 2011, Eldon Uhlenhopp (Doc) and his daughter, Gretchen (GUS) re-opened the business as Gus and Docs Family Restaurant. Much of the Drive-In/Diner heritage has been retained with an emphasis on a relaxed environment and menu variety featuring many homemade sandwiches and soups. A new addition was added to the building to house an expanded ice cream and appetizer business. A convenience window for car-side order pickup was also added. Outside seating will be available for seasonal use.Special menu items are featured daily including: Friday night cod or shrimp dinners, Saturday night lasagna or spaghetti dinners, and Sunday Broasted Chicken.Known for soft serve ice cream and ice cream pies, homemade tenderloins and onion rings, hot beef dinners, homemade soups and broasted chicken, Gus and Docs is a friendly hometown family atmosphere providing a pleasant eating experience at moderate prices.
