THE BUILDING THAT HUNT'S BATTLEFIELD FRIES AND CAFE' IS IN, IS AN OLD HOUSE THAT FAMILYS ONCE LIVED IN. THE HOUSE AT 61 STEINWEHR AVE WAS NOT HERE YET DURING THE CIVIL WAR BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG, BUT WAS BUILD ABOUT 1900, YES IT IS SMALL INSIDE, BUT WE MAKE GREAT USE OF THE SPACE.

Great milkskakes

We got black raspberry milkshakes which were awesome. The fries and cheese steaks are good as well and the staff is friendly. Would definitely go back again.

When in Gettysburg, which I pass through annually, I always stop at Hunt's. I'm a doc from the NC beach, but raised in the Phila. suburbs, and an authentic cheesesteak is something I seek out. This last trip I intentionally went down US-15 rather than I-81 just to go to Hunt's. Cheesesteak is $6.99 & you can double it to... More

Visited for lunch on a Sunday. Got a table as soon as we walked in and ordered cheesesteaks and medium fries with cheese on the side. All delicious. Also got an orangeade and lemonade. We both preferred the lemonade but both were good. Service was quick and friendly, no complaints!

Try the tub of fries and the cheese steak sandwich! Enjoy the spray malt vinegar and old fashioned bottles of soda. Kind staff!

We stopped here for a quick lunch based upon the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is small and interestingly quirky. We were visiting in the spring so the crowds were not large. The chicken cheese stakes and french fries were great. They also have a fun selection of unusual root beers, sodas, and even Moxie!...

My wife and (8 month old) daughter stopped by largely thanks to the Tripadvisor recommendations. We're thankful we did stop as we had a wonderful experience. The fries were cooked exactly how they should be; fresh cut in peanut oil with malt vinegar on hand. The cheesesteak was also very simple but can hold its own in contrast with the... More

We stopped here for lunch and it was great! The strawberry creme bottled soda was fab!! The fries and onion rings were delicious!! We had the best waitress as well. She was so nice! Very small place but worth it. 18 seats.

We stopped here for lunch one day and the food was good, the only draw back was seating, not a lot of room.

We came here since we had heard great reviews about it from the people at our hotel. The food is good & hot, but it is a very tight space to eat. When we came, it was VERY busy and we had to share a table with people we didn't know....
