....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... 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

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.

Typical place where you can buy frozen food thrown on the grill with unhealthy ingredient meant to satisfy your appetite for salt and saturated fats. And is too bad considering the location and the possibility to attract a larger crowd only if the food was more edible. I gave a rating of two hoping that the management will realize the... More
