    For $7.99 we got the appetizer sampler platter with fried zucchini, breaded mushrooms, onion rings, and cheese sticks. It was a little oily. Two of us tried the chicken and dumpling soup with our entrees-it wasn't overly salty, had lots of chicken, and had good flavor. The portion of gnocchi is huge (the picture doesn't do it justice) and the meatball was juicy and flavorful. The spaghetti with homemade pasta was delicious, and again a heaping portion. If I had any complaint, it would be that the pasta dishes could have used a little bit more sauce. For $16.99 the porterhouse steak came with two sides and a salad. The steak was cooked perfectly, juicy and delicious.

    Great food, and great prices. Try the Sunday brunch, if you've never. You won't be disappointed! And if you have tried it, go back again. It's that good! Staff is great also. I took a bus load of kids to Cal, and needed a place to get lunch. Hugo's accommodated us with a well planned buffet lunch within our budget. Highly recommend.

    I've passed Hugo's dozens of times in the 25+ years that I've been attending the Brownsville Drive-in. Finally went early enough to have time to stop in for dinner. SOOO DISAPPOINTED IN MYSELF for waiting all that time...
    Excellent food, wonderful and friendly owner, very good prices, and yes, my wife and I will leave early enough to eat there every trip to the drive-in from here on out.

    We were looking for a place to eat a late lunch when we came upon Hugo's Restaurant. My grandson, husband, and I are so glad that we stopped. The waitstaff was pleasant and helpful. My grandson so enjoyed his burger. He commented that it was so much better than a particular fast food chain. My husband also had the burger. He could tell that the patty was made with fresh meat. I enjoyed the chicken sandwich, done just the way I like it. The owner was there and I shared with him how much we enjoyed our lunch. He encouraged us to return for dinner sometime. We plan on doing just that!

    Went to a wedding reception here and the food and the staff were wonderful.

    Like others have stated, the decor and atmosphere is a bit dated, and not really what I excepted, but it didn't bother me. It was one of the best steaks I've had in a long time. $16.95 gets you a 16 oz t-bone (or porterhouse) salad, and two sides, and, get this, a complimentary beer or glass of wine. Our server was polite, prompt, and didn't bug the crap out of me every two seconds. Will definitely be back.

    My very Italian mother-in-law passed away at 85yo, and we needed someone to get an Italian meal together for thirty mostly Italian individuals, for after the funeral. My husband who has never planned a function in his life, stopped at Hugos and met with the Buffet Manager and the owner. He discussed what we wanted and they listened. They listened really well obviously, because after the funeral, we converged upon the restaurant and they were ready for us in a big way. They had us set up in a private room where we had plenty of privacy. They served us chicken parmesan, salad, rolls and butter, iced tea, ice water, the best pies ever, all family style. The food was delicious and the service was great. We needed them to function on our behalf without much direction, and they ran with it. It was perfect.

    My mom is from the area and takes me here whenever we're visiting. It's not a fancy place but the food is super good. I've had the pizza and their nachos as well, both were great. This place is such a mom and pop restaurant which I love. Stop by if you are in the area, it will not disappoint.

    I've been here many times just for dinner and even wedding receptions. I've never had a bad meal. They just renovated the bar which it desperately needed!

    I have been going here since I was a child (nearly 50 years), and it, along with Paci's, was THE restaurant to go to for any occasion. It is still a good "homey" place with good food and great service. I have always liked the pizza, who doesn't? The pork chops have always been a favorite, and the Italian specialties are always tasty. I recommend Hugo's to anyone passing through the area and to any locals who have not visited in a while. After living around the world, it is nice to come back home and still find a good wholesome old-fashioned meal.

    Best Overall Dining experience for the price
    We are local farmers of Brownsville PA. We usually do not dine that much since we prepare our own produce and other meals, but we were introduced to a local family restaurant called Hugo's Restaraunt, by a relatives in town.

    Our experience was pleasant, and they had a variety of food selection at low cost. My wife and I ordered pizza, and a small antipasta salad. The pizza doe seemed to be made fresh and was outstanding. It was crisp, but not burnt. Just the way we like it! The salad was huge! We could not believe that it was only a small because they serve a large, and we ended up not eating all and taking it home. The salad had fresh hard salami, cheeses, pepperoni, and every kind of vegetables. The salad was so big it could have been enough for all of us to eat as a meal.
