Loved the diner style, and the limited menu -- just get the Texas style hot dog, that's what they're known for. Friendly service, low prices.

This is a real local's place. Inexpensive and great food. I go here all the time. Best old fashioned cheeseburgers in Gettysburg.

Very old school nothing fancy but hardy & satisfying! We sat at a large family table with another couple. Food was tasty, hot & fast. Onion rings are a must hand battered and whole cuts of onions. Order the large because all will want at least one...so share nicely. We all ordered hot dogs. The chili was perfect on top for a cold day! The buns were soft and the hotdogs were split down the center plus had a great crunch when bit into. A little too much grilled onions on top for my taste but easily fixed. Great simple food almost comfort style. Go you won't be disappointed. Very clean inside & out. Cute decor with old style booths with table service. We didn't order any dessert but they looked great. We all agreed when we are in the neighborhood we would come back again.

Get over it folks, its a diner. The food is diner food, not gourmet but it's quick, it's good, its well served.

The staff is friendly. The onion rings and fries just greassy enough, the sandwiches appropriately hot (egg sandwich) and the chili beany with some meat, hearty but not spicy.

The coffee was good and plentiful. Did I mention the staff were attentive, quick and chatty.

Overall a nice stop.
