I'm ashamed to admit I've never been to Gettysburg to tour the grounds of the most well known battlefield of the Civil War. Even more embarrassed to say is that I'm a history teacher by design and a former native of Pennsylvania. However, I do have plans to experience Gettysburg this Fall with an expert on the battle (former Army War College instructor) and recent colleague of mine.
That being said, my wife and I briefly passed through the day after we got married in Montrose, PA. Excited to begin our honeymoon in the Outer Banks, I thought what better way to start things off than by getting a little taste of G'Burg. We found Hunt's Cafe' on Tripadvisor, of course, and decided it was the perfect place to stop on our first day as newlyweds.
After watching my food intake the past few weeks to look impeccable in my tux for the wedding, it was time to indulge in something more satisfying on the pallet. I had the Cheesesteak and she the Chicken Cheesesteak. Now I don't always eat Cheesesteak's as I'm usually let down and disappointed (even at "Pat's King of Steaks" in Philly).
To my delight, I was very impressed with Hunt's version of the American favorite. The seasoning/marinade on the beef was excellent, everything I could've hoped for. The sweet peppers were great--I asked for them on the side to give a trial run first, but they too were amazing. My wife enjoyed her Chicken Cheesesteak as well, but I would recommend the beef over the chicken (I sampled hers while she was momentarily distracted by the photos and other memorabilia occupying every inch of wall space).
Needless to say, if you're in need of a quick sit-down lunch be sure to stop by Hunt's Cafe in Gettysburg. You'll be glad you did!
