We hit this place whenever we get a chance. Not a great place for a 3 year old. But if your kid likes a little kick in their food, try this out. I get pulled pork. Extra sauce. My wife gets the tacos. Cornbread is good too

Scrumptious Mexican grub using smoked meats for all the dishes. Tasty, great atmosphere and reasonable prices. I highly recommend you stop there the next time you go to the Manville theater. It's the best!

If you are in Manville, try eating at the Grub Hut. Their BBQ and Mexican food is excellent. Prices are slightly on the high side but you won't be disappointed. The place isn't that big so be sure to get there early for seating. They also have outdoor seating during the warmer weather.

The food is fantastic the service us great. It is not your upscale place, it is a nice clean place to get excellent food. There was just 2 of us but since I had a walker they offered a larger table so we could spread out a bit even though that was the last 4 top available. Go there for... More

The food is better than Grub Locals like the homestyle house specials' The Wholesome food is made fresh... not fast. Most dishes have a Tex/Mex flair.

We frequent the Grub Hut perhaps 6 times each year and my standby regular is chicken fajitas, although I try other entrees so I don't get in a rut. I hadn't had their fajitas in a while, so I ordered them and am so glad I did. While the peppers and onions at most restaurants are just OK, once I... More

A small modest restaurant in Manville offers a surprisingly tasty cuisine, a combo of Southern and Mexican , a delicious fusion executed by a talented chef. Check out the menu. I am planning a return visit soon. Get in early, I understand there's a wait if you come later.

I was at Duke's farm and wanted something for dinner. We came across the Grub Hut. It's a mix of BBQ meats and tex-mex. I had the Big time platter which was more then plenty for two people so I took leftovers home. It had smoked ribs, chicken, pulled pork, 2 tacos, 2 burritos and a quesadilla. You can pick... More
