There was just nothing special about any of the food items we ordered. And we especially ordered a mix of Mexican and BBQ. Some of the items were ok, average, but certainly nothing was above average. Which was a total surprise to me as the restaurant really has some good reviews. The other thing was that the place was just... More

Grub Hut does an excellent fusion of Mexican and Barbeque that is just scrumptious! To many good things to list here, so just try it for yourself. You won't regret it!

Grub Hit continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area! The food there is consistently great. Last night I had chicken fajitas - superb - chicken done perfectly and the peppers and onions were so delicious that I ate ever last piece! My spouse enjoyed the chicken n rib combo, really very good!

My wife and I love the Grub hut. The food is always good. The salsa is made fresh. Very reasonable prices. We both always leave full.

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.
