Well it ain't fancy.
But you could probably gather that much from the name.
What the Hillbilly Snack Shack is, however, is a super-friendly little eatery that serves tasty and affordable foods in an alcohol and gambling free atmosphere. How refreshing!

The Hillbilly Snack Shack, located on Rt. 40 just outside Triadelphia, is owned and operated by retired veteran Ed "Mac" McDaniel and his wife Tracy. The small eatery, accented with Americana decor, is clean and family-friendly. It garnered the Buds' attention when several Facebook acquaintances of both Buds made repeated mention of how much they enjoyed the place and how good the food was. There were also many references as to the friendliness of the staff. Intrigued, the Buds high-tailed it to Triadelphia to check it out!
The menu at the Hillbilly Snack Shack features a large variety of hoagies, sandwiches, burgers, deep fried hot dogs, dinner platters, salads, daily specials and a kids' menu. It took the Buds quite a few minutes to decide what they wanted as there were too many things that sounded really good! Steak hoagies, meatball hoagies, a Hoppin' Poppin' Chicken sandwich which featured grilled chicken, jalapenos and cheddar cheese, the Oil Field Trash Burger topped with American cheese, bacon, sauteed onions and mushrooms, coleslaw and fries (YUM!), the taco salad served in a deep fried shell, and a Redneck Dog wrapped in bacon and covered in chili and cheese. Help!!
Bud Em finally settled on the Steak Special hoagie and a small order of Hillbilly Loaded Fries. We must mention that whole hoagies are a whopping 15", so Bud Em went with the half which rang in at $7.50. The toasted hoagie bun was loaded with tender sliced sirloin, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and provolone cheese. The sandwich was hearty and filling - definitely a smart choice! The loaded fries, which rang in at 4 bucks, were topped with chili, cheese, bacon and ranch dressing. Both Buds agreed that the indulgence was worth the calories.
Bud Shaunna decided on the Coalminer Burger for 7 bucks. A 1/3 lb Angus beef patty was topped with sauteed onions, American cheese, bacon and an onion ring and slathered in barbeque sauce. The sandwich came with a side of crispy onion rings. And just for the heck of it, Bud S also ordered some Buffalo Chips, spicy waffle cut fries served with ranch dressing.
The burger was delicious, as the sweet barbeque sauce really added some great flavor. The crunch of the breaded onion ring was also a nice surprise - Bud S didn't have much trouble scarfing this one down!
And the Buffalo Chips were fabulous! They were thin, almost like potato chips, but they sure packed a spicy punch. Too bad Bud Shaunna couldn't finish them, but hey, that's why to-go boxes were invented! They would pair up great with the Steak Special hoagie Bud S ordered to take home to Bud Hubby.
After taking in everything, the Buds concluded our Facebook friends really did have reason to highly tout the Hillbilly Snack Shack. In fact, we're certain we will now be among that group of friends!
