“Just one word YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

I found this place from a review on tripdvisor and thought we would try it out. It is a little hole in the wall in the middle of town. The service was not wonderful and the guys working there were not very friendly. We got there about 7:30pm and they seemed bothered. But the food is amazing and inexpensive! We have 5 in our family and they all said the food made up for the cruddy service.

“You are there for the Cheesesteak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

Yes it is ture the place is cluttered but with fun things to read and look at while you wait for the BEST CHEESESTEAK I have ever had (including a real Philly). The fries were also very good. If you like cheesesteaks and are in Gburg do not let this place go bye. If you like cloth napkins and not cut in half paper towels move on. Remember you are there for the food not the atmosphere. The service was excellent as well.

“One of best stops for food and service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011 via mobile

Plan to come here if you are in Gettysburg! This is an authentic hole in the wall with amazing service and great food. The "toilet paper" rolls on the tables are actually a roll of paper towels sawed in half and they have every kind of soda imaginable! Really good - relaxed and fun!

“TOURISTS BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

We were afraid to sit on the seats. I will never trust TA again. As soon as we walked in our faces dropped, there was TOILET PAPER on the plastic table for napkins. Not a real sit down restaurant.
