“I'll be back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2009

Had lunch here on Saturday. Just might be the best fries I have had yet - fresh-cut with the skin left on, and cooked to order, crunchy exterior, light interior, lightly seasoned - and a spray bottle of malt vinegar on the table. One word - WOW. The cheesesteak was a bit salty but very good, a generous portion of meat on a fresh Italian bread.
The interior has limited seating and you may wait a bit for your food but it's worth it, everything is cooked to order, nothing made in advance.

“Great place, huge portions, awesome interior.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2009

I liked this restaurant. There is not a lot of inside seating, but the decorations, signs, etc. all over the walls are fun to read. It was a little tough with my toddler because she wanted to look at everything! The portions were huge! If you have children, I would highly recommend having two children share one order of fries, depending on how much they usually eat. We walked away with a lot of food left that the kids didn't eat. For two adults and 3 kids, lunch was about $50, which I thought was a little expensive. Next time though I will take my own advice and split some orders. The food was very good. I didn't have any fries but did have a grilled chicken sandwich that was very good. My husband said that the cheese steak was great! Lots of toppings for the fries too. Everyone who ordered the fries liked them.

“Outstanding food for reasonable price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2009

If you like hamburgers, fried, chicken tenders or cheesesteak, than Hunt's is a must stop for you. The food was excellent and the staff were some of the nices people I meet in Gettysburg.

“My favorite lunch spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2009

I work just outside Gettysburg. Whenever my travels bring me into town I make it a point to stop at Hunts. Their food is outstanding and the portions are generous. No better fries in Gettysburg either! Service is always good and the conversation is pleasent. I also enjoy the decorations. There are a lot of humorus signs around the dining area that you can buy and take home if you like and if you are a veteran like me you will certainly find a hat or bumbersticker to fit your service. Hunt's is just a darn good place!
