I grew up in the area and always go for "one complete" when back there. What a disappointment...the quality of the hot dog itself, the bun, service less than mediocre. The place was always immaculate and it even did not seem up to the old standard. Have talked with several long time friends who had the same experience we did... More

Grew up in Union and have gone here for years for the Hot Dogs. The hot dogs are not what they used to be. The bun was bigger than the hot dog. Service has also gone down hill. On my last visit, I waited in line for 20 minutes with one window server working at a time while the other... More

I grew up here, have been here many times, and we always rave about this place. Today, it was not so good - largely because of the server and service - it was slow, incorrect and just plain bad. Good thing was not our first visit, or it would be the last.

Can't rate the food better than average, but the service was very friendly and accommodating to our group. We shared appetizers, best of which were the nachos, in my mind anyway. Didn't try their "signature" dish, hot dogs, but a friend said they weren't bad if you put sauerkraut, ketchup, and mustard on them. Another friend suggested chili toppings. I... More

I came back to New Jersey after 6 years for a family visit at Thanksgiving. Well of course I had to go the Galloping Hill Inn to have a couple of the HOT DOGS that I loved from years past. I had one sweet works and the other was a chilli dog with mustard and onions. I'm not sure why... More

We moved into the area and happened to see the restaurant was busy on a summer day so we Decided to try it. We never ordered the famous hot dogs . Most of our choices had been pretty good. Recently we tried the famous hot dog. It was not worth it. The bread was overpowering and the hot dog had... More

We have been coming here for years, haven't been in a while, they used to use a substantial torpedo roll to hold up to the large dog and the toppings, they switched to an oversized regular bun witch is completely soggy and mushy halfway through. What a shame. Cut back on quality you lose customers.

I wanted a hot dog with everything. The roll and toppings so overpowered the frankfurter that I could not taste it. A bit disappointed but will give them another another chance. Its quite popular - so there must be a redeeming feature.

I have been going to the GHG, aka. Peterson's for over fifty years back when the hotdogs were forty-five cents. I moved away from Cranford in 1977 but every time I returned over the years, I always made a point of returning for "two with the works" and a Birch beer. Always the same order. I did the same on...

This hot dog and burger place has been an iconic "hot dog place" for a very long time- The hot dogs and rolls and burger s and fries and onion rings were always the absolute best- different and excellent in an un-explainable way- The place has changed ownership a half dozen times at least in the past 40 years.
