Always my favorite place to grab some delicious cheese fries and a burger or a yummy hot dog! My family come from California just to get Gilleys!

Huge portions, super fresh, mouth-wateringly delicious, and CHEAP. I particularly love the poutine, but really, everything's good there. There's not much seating to speak of - just a few counters - but it's definitely worth the visit.

Just not worth the visit. Ordered a few hotdogs and french fries...hot dogs were done about 10 minutes before the fries. Owner, not very pleasant. Asked for hot sauce and he acted like I was a bother and he was doing me a big favor.More

I drove around the Portsmouth downtown area for a few minutes trying to find a parking spot and had no luck. It was a Friday night just after suppertime. In front of Gilley's, however, there were three parking spots, so in we went. It looks...More

This is what it is, a no frills, "greasy spoon" diner that has really good double cheese burgers & fries. Nothing fancy (eat off paper plates), but a fun place to grab a burger (with the works) and fries after a couple beers at the...More

Six of us stopped for a quick lunch since this place was right next to our parking garage. It is basically a hot dog/hamburger place with about 10 stools in a pretty small area. The hot dogs were enjoyed by those who had them. The...More
