If you are driving through Shaver, do yourself a favor and eat anywhere else. This place is horrible. The food is worse than McDonalds and the customer service...well there is none. The workers are rude, disgusting, and they want to

My wife got their chicken wrap and after she took one bite and said, "Oh No I think there is something wrong with the chicken". So I tried it and instantly my thoughts were, "Oh damm, I will have to pray I do not get food poisoning"

So I walked to the window and explained that I believe their chicken was bad and the employee instantly called the boss over "Mrs. Linda Sinks" and without asking for our money back or a different item we were told that they do not take refunds....... I thought this was a bit defensive approach to me letting them know that there might be something "wrong" with their chicken (no refund request, remake, or different item... at this point). Instead of being concerned Linda choose to continue to remind me that she is not going to take it back, refund me, or make something different "On the house" which I still have not even asked for.

My intentions were to let her know that she may wish to "check" her chicken and we would like to have a burger instead (no willing to risk the chicken) expecting to pay the difference ($2-3) but instead was meet with an extremely hostile woman clearly in a conditioned response having have had to of given this response quite regularly.

I decided to explain to her that her approach was not the best of business practices as there are 8 people in our party which would "all" hear my experience (showing no concern for ??bad? chicken) and more likely she would lose their business for years following,.... all over $0.50 worth of her product??? It just does not make since business wise.

After realizing that the only thing she was able to say out of her mouth was "we do not give refunds" and I was getting nowhere with words, I decided to give her a visual example and opened up the chicken wrap letting the content fall all over her countertop and then handed her the naked tortilla through the windows. She was not please,.... but I did get her attention! With a few angry words from her mouth she pick up the tortilla and cocked her arm back like she was going to throw it at me. She never did, nor did I believe she was capable of it but in the end I left her business and will never visit this place EVER again in my lifetime.

A Side Note - They charge $4.00 for a Hot Chocolate which is made from a Costco bought instant hot chocolate packet.

If you would like a GREAT meal at a normal price just head South down the road about 200' to the Shaver Deli and you will have a completely opposite experience.

We walked in and starting looking at the meats and were offer sample, free of course, to help us decide. The owner offered to make an amazing sounding hot sandwich and if I did not like it was on him! He made the meals and delivered them to our table without asking for a dime. He even made himself a little something to eat, sat near us and chit chatted with us about his business beliefs, future dreams of the business and the current and future expansion plans he has in mind. The owner could not have been any nicer! No really I??m not sure it would have been possible.

Nearing the completion of our meal I thanked him for the wonderful meal and recommendation and asked what I owned and where I could pay. We were told no rush sit relax and if we were still happy when we were down with our meal he had the bill at the register.

The pricing at the Shaver Deli was more than fair... $12 for two sandwiches, fries and drinks........ he will have my business for year to come!

I have been traveling to the Shaver area for over 30 years, often weekly. I am amazed how this place is still in business. Winter of 2009, I stopped off on the way back from a day at Sierra Summit (China Peak) for a late lunch. After ordering my $10 hamburger and waiting for over 30 minutes (I was the only customer) my "food" came. The bun was torn clean off and the meat looked as if it hadn't even been cooked. I asked them to please cook it a little longer for me and was told they didnt have time for that.

This past weekend I figured I would give them a chance to redeem themselves. We parked our truck in front of the Hungry Hut in their assigned parking stalls. Upon getting my small children out of the truck, we went to the bed of the truck to secure our fishing poles and other items that were loose in the bed. Before I could blink a woman shot out and told me if I didnt move my truck they would have it towed. I asked if it was a no-parking zone and she rudely told me it is for paying customers only. I informed her that we were coming right in to eat lunch. Her response, "Well you better hurry up or I'm having it towed!!" I went inside to ask what the problem was and was told by the manager (at least that's what her name tag said though she has ZERO managerial skills in dealing with customers) that the parking is for customers only. I replied that I had been coming here my entire life and didnt appreciate her candor as we were customers and that I would appreciate an apology. Her gracious apology...well go eat someplace else if you don't like our rules!

Needless to say i will NEVER return to this place and sincerely hope anybody who reads this avoids this dump at all costs. It's sad, I am a firm believer in putting money back into the communities I visit and I love to see the "locals" thrive off of tourisim. However, if this place were to go under tomorrow I would be elated. Shaver Lake is a beautiful community with truly great people. It's a shame that the people at the hungry hut create such a bad impression. STAY AWAY

The Hungry Hit is a regular stop anytime I'm at or passing through Shaver Lake. Lots of benches outside for the family. The burgers and fries are great and the kids love the swirl ice cream cones. The place gets very very busy around lunch during the season, so expect a wait and just relax and enjoy.
