For the first year of your career at Gettysburg, you will eat at Servo. Almost always. The consensus at G'burg agrees on two things: 1) the food here is better than at the majority of other colleges, and 2) chances are, your tastebuds will not be disappointed. The importance of food quality at a college is something that's easy to overlook when deciding where to go, but something that really should be a crucial element of a student's selection process. At a small school with few dining options, not liking the food can really (and quite literally) sour the entire college experience.
At Gettysburg, food is not a problem. The quality, and to an extent the selection, tends to be quite good, with occasional peaks of delicious. Of course, while Servo is the main dining establishment, two other options exist. Ike's, despite the sometimes inconvenient hours, provides the key option of Mexican dining, while the Bullet Hole represents Gettysburg's fast food alternative. The subs are made to order, and there are almost always two soups of the day and an entrée if you prefer something hot. The Bullet Hole is very popular among students on the go, and it allows you to either use meals from your card or spend dollars that are added as part of your meal plan.
