This was a lot better than I expected. We grabbed a hotdog on a pretzel bun and the battlefield fries. The basket of fries was huge for a medium. The meal was cheap and the service was quick. If you're just looking for a quick place to go, then drop into this place.

This place was right across from our hotel and convenient for a place to eat after a long day of walking. The food was very good and lots of selections offered on the menu.

I've been to Gettysburg before and every time I kind of looked at Hunts but never eaten there. I think on my last trip I actually walked in and decided that it was way too crowded and turned around and left. I'd read good reviews of this place before this last trip, and my son and I have been crying... More

Stopped in based on other reviews. Delicious cheesesteak and even better fries. Chicken tenders for my son were great too. Got it to go and it was really fast. Friendly, helpful staff even though they were very busy. Try it!! Going back tomorrow for same thing.

This place is very tiny. In fact, I never would have even eaten here if it had not been for the reviews. The wings were good, and so were the fries. It wasn't fantastic, and it was a bit over-priced,but it was good. We would eat here again.

This is definitely a 'hole in the wall' restaurant. Small and limited seating inside, but food was great and reasonably priced. The cheesesteak and fries were fantastic.We have 2 small children and the kids meals were just right! Also,ice cream only 99 cents a scoop! If you are looking for something good, quick and local this is your place! Great... More

Hunts is the epitome of a hole in the wall restaurant it is extremely small but the good was out of this world. I had French fries and a cheesesteak and they both were absolutely amazing. It's a great place to visit and the prices are very cheap. Would definitely visit again!
