$10-$20 Entrée including the Hoss's Salad Bar. Cleaner than most Hoss's. Waiters were attentive. Stakes cooked to order perfectly. This is a good place for a family lunch or dinner, but stay out of the "party room" if you don't like the noise that comes with sitting with partying organizations (baseball, soccer, basketball, church, scouts etc). Hoss's New menu is... More

I have lived in the area for 10 years now and have never ate at Hoss's and let me tell you I was not missing anything special. This place is horrible. The food is nasty and bland. And the whole place looks like something you would see on the Brady bunch show. Needs some serious updates. The whole place just... More

Please put some of these in the state of Maryland. Seems like they are only in Penna. Food is always fresh. All bars are always kept clean. If you don't get full and get you moneys worth its your own fault. Excellent Food!!!!

Typical of the old Ponderosa and Western Sizzling steakhouses. Food was good and quick. Our server was very nice and efficient. Wanted a quick sit down meal and this filled the bill. Great for families.

Disappointed. There as it opened, but some vegetable containers were not full. Appeared that food was left over from previous day. Brownies were gooey. Vanilla ice cream not working.

The "soup & salad" buffet could be a meal by itself. My burger patty was tasty. The fries seemed highly processed, like a combo of rice & potato or puffed with gluten. The "ice cream" isn't really ice cream and I would have prefered that the whipped topping be whipped cream. Really good service.
