“Do NOT miss this place!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

If you're lucky, and it's not crowded, Scott Hunt will spend some time with you. He has lived in the area forever, and has family that can be traced back to the wars (both Civil and Revolutionary). He is a gracious host, and an excellent cook!
The cheesesteaks (both beef and chicken) are amazing, and the medium basket of fries will easily feed four (or three starving men). It's not a large place, and there is limited seating, so if you go during "tourist season", you might have a bit of a wait. Take my word for it, and WAIT. It's worth it!

“DELICOUS!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

This is a tiny place, so if you are visiting Gettysburg during high season you can expect a wait. Very casual and great value. The cheesesteak was fantastic! Lots of meat & cheese. We opted to go without onions, but they looked and smelled divine. The fries are wonderful, and a medium order filled four of us. Scott, the owner, is warm and friendly, and if you can catch him when it isn't busy, has great stoies to share.

“They make history so yummy good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Their food is awesome everyday fare. A million times better than Fast Food places, Their Chili Dogs and onion rings are great as is everything else. Also have a variety of baseball caps and old fashioned metal signs. A great place for the family and you can get take-outs!

“Yummy cheesteaks and a nice owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

We decided to eat here during our one day visit to Gettysburg based on another TripAdvisor review. We were not disappointed. The cheesesteaks were great. There is also a huge selection of root beer. Seems to be a regular place for locals to eat. We really enjoyed visiting with the owner. We would visit again.
