Great food and service. However, they do not take credit cards. Small menu but we will definitely be going back for Fall Carlisle.

Just try it, but remember CASH only. Uniquely Central PA and fantastically original. This place hasn't changed a bit since I used to come here as a kid 20+ years ago.

We just visited The Hamilton within the past week. The Hotchee Dogs are $2.40 and the Hotchee Burgers are $3.00. Delicious.
