Great food and service!!

We went two different times, great cheesesteaks, burgers and fries. Fast, attentive service. Small building but big on character. Would go back again and again.

The reviews that I had read promised a lot more than what was delivered. It certainly cannot compare to South Street. Additionally, you must pay for any real extra toppings on the cheese steaks. The french fries are fresh but soggy. Do not try any other fried food there.

We saw the reviews for this place the nite we got into town and was disappointed they had already closed. We made sure to go here though for lunch and was honestly disappointed. To be fair we read a lot about cheesesteak sammiches and didn't get one, however their sign says "Famous hamburgers" and let me tell you there was... More

Very good french fries. Philly cheese steaks were good also. There were 7 of us. Everyone was happy with their food. There is so many bottles of drinks to choose from. Some flavors from my childhood. The employees were great to us. There is a lot to look at hanging on the walls. It was a fun little restaurant. I... More

The fries and cheesesteak were very good. Everything seemed fresh. The portions ere large. My only complaint would be that it was a bit pricey for the type of food offered.

Great food - fries were amazing! We were at the Gettysburg National Museum all day and looking for a quick meal, checked Trip Advisor and 1 mile away is Hunt's. Cheese steaks and burgers were big and priced low. They are rated #2 for a reason!

This is a charming, little "hole-in-the-wall" café near downtown Gettysburg. It has a GREAT cheesesteak sandwich (they were mentioned on Yelp) and other limited sandwich fare. It is kind of like a little burger/fries/deli place that also serves ice cream and excellent milk shakes. The interior is cool - eclectic charm with about 8-10 tables. It also has 3 or... More

Excellent food and service. Must go there if you are in Gettysburg. We ordered medium fries...enormous order and so very good. Cheesesteak sandwiches were wonderful.

If you're looking for a great place to eat at very reasonable prices, that is. (Spoiler,Gettysburg is very tourist-y and not cheap). We came in here after seeing the great reviews--and to get out of the rain--and weren't disappointed. It's hard to see how the famous cheesesteak places in downtown Philly could have been any better than Hunt's. Good sized... More

Amazing food!! The beef cheesesteak sandwich is best sandwich I've ever had. The fries are fresh and delicious. The servers are friendly and welcoming, and the cook is awesome! I wished we would have tried this place earlier in our trip, we would have definitely ate there several times during our stay! Space is limited but the food is way... More
