We loved this family owned spot! Ate fries, hot dogs, grilled cheeses and a chicken sandwich and drinks for less than $15. Everything was tasty and we loved the story behind the making of the business. We will go again next time we are in Gettysburg.

Stopped by for coffee and an English muffin. Staff was very friendly and even though I didn't eat a complete meal, their service was attentive and quick. Reminded me of the film, "The Last Picture Show".

Looks like a small diner. Nothing fancy, just quick service and a limited menu. We had the grilled cheese sandwiches, which was good. Prices were low, which must make them popular with the college crowd.

We had three hot dogs, a large basket of fries , and three waters for $13.52 so if you are looking for a good, cheap meal, this is the place. They are apparently known for their hot dogs so that's what we had. The hot dogs were fine but certainly not the best I have ever had. I can say... More

We have heard great things about this place and when we tried it we found it not to be to our tastes. I will mention we only had a lunch and never tried their breakfast menu. We just did not find the hotdogs and fries up to the quality to another restaurant in town.

The BEST hot dogs ever. I travel far & wide for these. It's a tragedy that wife, Linda, died recently. She made everybody feel special.

The place was described to me by a local as a greasy spoon and I could eat for less than $20 before I went. That's exactly what it was. The atmosphere was what I expected and the place was packed. My wife and I ordered burgers. They were just ok. If you get fries stay away from the chili fries.... More

Loved the diner style, and the limited menu -- just get the Texas style hot dog, that's what they're known for. Friendly service, low prices.

This is a real local's place. Inexpensive and great food. I go here all the time. Best old fashioned cheeseburgers in Gettysburg.
