Went there with my parents after a match expecting big, juicy steaks but they were thin, overcooked and flavorless. Service was poor and overall experience was a letdown.

We've eaten at Hoss's twice during our trips to Juniata College. There aren't many restaurants to choose from in the area, but we were surprised at how good the food was at Hoss's, and also the service. At some of the other restaurants where we've eaten in town, there's a tendency to remove your plate before you finish eating. I don't know what that's about, but I'm happy to report it didn't happen here. Salad bar is good, and the dessert buffet is very good - especially their bread pudding.

The salad bar was great but the food wasn't the best. Love the Hoss's Atmosphere though.

Pennsylvanians, especially those who live in the central part of that state, certainly are aware of Hoss's Restaurants since there are more than a dozen of these excellent eating establishments located in numerous small towns throughout the area. As travelers from the Midwest, however, we had never heard of this chain and stopped there only after noticing that the parking lot seemed full of cars no matter when we passed by. We were delighted that we did. Hoss's, at least the one in Huntingdon, is simply a fine American restaurant. The food choices were extremely diverse but everything was delicious, cooked exactly as we asked it to be. An extensive soup and salad bar offers a meal in itself if one prefers a lighter meal.

Tourists, especially those who might be visiting Huntingdon and/or Juniata College in that town, might easily pass up Hoss's since every ad and recommendation one sees suggests other places located directly in the heart of Huntingdon rather than out of the fringe like Hoss's. They shouldn't. Prices are reasonable, the food is filling and well-prepared and unquestionably locals realize this. The evening we were there, nearly half the restaurant was filled with the entire Juniata College football team and their coaches. The old saying is that 50 million Frenchmen can't be wrong. In this case, 17,000 residents of Huntingdon must be on the right track as well. We have a young grandson attending the college and we'll be back to see him, hopefully often. When we do, one of the places that we'll make a beeline to when we're ready for a good meal, is Hoss's.
