A staple burger joint at the five points intersection. The addition of the stand alone bar was a bad idea

I was brought here as a child and have been coming back for more than 50 years. I don't drive on the GS parkway (exit 138) without stopping here for a burger, hot dog and onion rings with a beer. I bring my family just as my parents brought me. There have been minor upgrades over the years... read more

Got a the chili dog which might be the only place in America which has a bun that fits the dog. Chili was tasty and comes with mustard. Also had the California burger which was average.

They just expanded the restaurant and the menu which is great. The tables, floors, chairs and especially the filthy old rest rooms need a lot more attention. They redid The dining area and didn't touch the bathrooms, literally. They are gross I would not use them on a bet. The girls try very hard to get food out quick but... More

I have been attending events at The Galloping Hills for years, and I have never been disappointed. This Memorial Day weekend, attended my cousins wedding reception. It was truly an event to remember. The entire staff are consummate professionals and receptive to your needs of throwing a great event. The food is very good. I am always excited to attend... More

I’ve been coming here for decades. Years and years ago (like 100), it was called Petersons, and the locals still call it that, despite the name change to Galloping Hill Grill. The name has never been important as the experience was always the same; a great place to grab a hot dog, some amazing onion rings, and a cold beer.... More

....love this place. My current job has me on the road quite a bit now ...and for some tasty, quick food ...the Galloping Hill is on my "do it often" list when I'm nearby. The hot dogs are top notch ...and the fries can be a meal by themselves. I usually grab-and-go, but there's indoor seating, and in the warmer... More

I've been going to this place since I was a child. We used to go there for a special treat and for the car shows. This is one place that will never die out in my opinion, everything I've ever had there was great. Great atmosphere, great food and great/friendly staff. I've tried many things, but my favorite will always... More

The Italian cheesesteak Is hands down the best I ever had. Onion rings are crisp and plentiful. I do like the hot dogs although the bread is too thick for me Soups are homemade and good. Club sandwiches, chicken sandwiches are great as well, Wash it all down with a birch beer and your all set. Great little place for... More

Centrally located and your choice of waitress table seating or counter service. Pretty basic menu, food is good, prepared to order. Very friendly wait staff. Noted for their hot dogs, they are very good. Also try their Birch Beer.

If you don't like this great location flavor, And the food, then leave. This is an icon of the area. Great hot dogs, Burgers and much more. 32 oz beers :). You will love this place. Virtually unchanged since I first went in 1975.
