The employees are so friendly and welcoming and the food was fantastic and very reasonably priced! My family and I were so impressed with the flavor in our food. We ordered a lot of different food and everyone even... More

Having given American Hero the "best burger" rating last year, I have to say, their burgers are no longer very good. First they reduced the size of the burger in width and height, but not the bun, so you have this little piece of meat and too much bread. Also, they are not cooking it properly anymore. it's no longer... More

Very low on ambience compared to what other places downtown looked like. That is not why you come to this little jewell. It was good food at VERY reasonable prices and the service was fast and attentive. Had a delicious Gyro sandwich while my daughter had spaghetti, so there are many selections. The deli was full of locals, so that... More

I must admit my expectations were somewhat low but I decided to try a different restaurant in Hillsborough for once...boy let me tell you I am sure glad i did. I had the philly cheese steak, fries, and a turkey and swiss to go. The sandwiches were very good however the fries were average. The outside of the restaurant leaves... More

Dirty, dirty dirty. Food was not tasty, chicken was dry old rubber. I will definitely not be returning. There are wonderful restaurants in Hillsborough, this is NOT one of them.

It is worth venturing out of the historical area of Hillsborough to American Hero Hillsborough. Just 2/3 of a mile north of downtown is this very nice and affordable fast food restaurant with lots of eating options. My husband and I had an errand in downtown Hillsborough, and drove the quick three minutes north to get a delightful lunch. Upon... More

There is so much to choose from so we look forward to many more visits to try it all! On our first visit, we tried the Chicken Kabob Platter and Greek Mousaka. Both were tasty large portions and a great value. Chicken Kabobs - large, perfectly cooked chunks of chicken, peppers and onions were served with a side of tzatziki... More

This place has lots of variety and most everything I have eaten has been good. I especially like their traditional Greek fare. Not the best I've ever had, but pretty good and the price is right. The deserts are to kill for.

Their Philly Cheese Steaks are pretty good. They are not Pat's or Gino's, but a close second. For a cold sub I'd go for the Black Forest Ham & Smoked Provalone
