This place has caused me to gain a lot of weight. I love Gilley's. When I was working right across the street for a time, it was not good. Best at 1130 am, best at 3 pm, best at 2 am. You can't beat the burgers and dogs, the fries, the chili, its all awesome.

There is nothing better than a Gilley's chili dog if you're out in Portsmouth late at night!

Best greasy burgers and incredible fries, especially when the bars are closing!
