Gettysburg Eats

A few good places in Gettysburg to try:

1. Dunlaps (formerly Sunny Ray) on Rte. 30. Very good and very reasonably priced. Typical southern PA family restaurant. Hard to beat these types.

2. Avenue Restaurant downtown near cemetary- Great breakfast and cheap. Haven't tried other meals.

3. Farnsworth House- authentic Civil War era dishes. Try the Game Pie- it has quail, pheasant, and a few other fowl in it. The pumpkin fritters are a must try. The spoon bread is great and I personally love the peanut soup.

4. Ernie's Texas Lunch is a good little diner with hot texas weiners.

5. The Chicken Coop has excellent pressure cooked fried chicken, take out only.

6. The Hofbrau Haus in Adamstown is pretty good if you like German food.

Places to aviod-
I love Quality Inn Larson's. I stay there every time I'm in Gettysburg. But I loathe Muldoon's Grille or J.D.'s Grille, or whatever they call it now. When it Was General Lee's it was a fantastic place with some awesome apple fritters. Well, the place has now tried to go away from a family image to a more upscale image. the result is a typical post-modern hotel restaurant with mediocre food with a great name and an high price tag.

I also am not fond of Gettysbrew, the food takes a back seat to the drink, but I didn't find that to be awfully good, either.

Has anyone tried Bobby A's in Fayetteville? I always pass it and see huge crowds but I've never stopped in.
