My husband and I ate there while in town. They have very few tables, so they asked if we minded sitting with another couple (which was perfectly fine). However, our food took forever and when it came time to pay our bill, they had given us the wrong check and was rude to my husband about fixing it. They had... More

It's nothing fancy. But good cheesesteaks, fries and quick eats on the run. The owner came out and talked to us, they are very personable. Love reading the signs they have hanging around.

I am honestly stunned by how high the ratings are for this place. The food was decent but definitely nothing special. It was certainly not worth sitting in a cramped, hoarded little building with air conditioning that didn't work on a 95 degree day. The little room that they call a dining area was packed with junk and not clean.... More

Restaurant is easy to find/navigate to using Apple maps. Parking was hard to find--we kicked out with a spot behind the street it was on. Restaurant is small--seats maybe 20 insides at 4/5 tables. Had outside tables as well. It was 99 degrees in G-burg yesterday so the place was warm. Ceiling fans can't cut through that kind of heat!!!... More

Our Licensed Battlefield Guide recommended Hunt's to myself and my son. Thanks John! Food was very tasty. Milkshakes, French Fries, Chicken Fingers, Hamburgers, Ham & Cheese sandwich were all great. A special treat is the selection of craft sodas. We liked it so much we ate both lunch and dinner there.

The food was delicious, huge portions of fries and onion rings. The steak sandwich was very good. I also recommend the lemonade and orangeade, especially on hot days..

A funny place full of military souvenirs, with a few tables, and tasty if somewhat greasy food. I had a "ground chicken cheesesteak" sandwich which was quite tasty; they also have decent coffee, surprisingly enough. Service friendly if not terribly quick--definitely a Mom & Pop sort of vibe.

Let's see here why Hunt's is fantastic. I'm local and have recently rediscovered the gem that is Hunt's Battlefield Fries! - Awesome cheese steaks with fresh buns! - Very tasty chili-cheese fries - you can even order them in a large bucket! Medium fries will easily feed two. - They sell all kinds of quirky bottled soda, including the amazing... More

We never miss an opportunity to stop here and eat. they make the best cheese steak hoagies that I have ever had. The fries are good too. You don't leave there hungry. They also have hand dipped ice-cream, the old fashioned soda, and milkshakes. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Great place to come in out of the heat... More
