AMAZING, AMAZING Pretzels. Best that I have ever tasted. These are what the pretzels in the carts in New York City should taste like! My family and I visit Lancaster every year in August and this is a must stop for us. We actually do 2 or 3 stops here during our 3 to 5 day visit. It's hard to... More

OMG! These pretzel are fabulous. They really are the best that I have ever had. They also have homemade lemonade, root beer and homemade potato chips. All were great tasting. There are homemade crafts and a great selection of quillows. I loved this store. This was my favorite store that we visited while in Amish country. The prices were great... More

We are locals and visit here often. They have great pretzels and root beer. My kids love feeding the animals. Tip: don't waste your money on the food dispenser by the animals. Go into the store and ask for day old bread. They will sell it for $1.00 and you get a lot more to feed the animals. They don't... More

Great place!!! Purchased some Amish made butter, cheese and baked goods. The pretzel stand was closed, so we didn’t have the chance to try them. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I stopped there during our bus tour. We had homemade root beer and pretzels that were terrific. My fourth time in Lancaster and first time at Country Side Road Stand.

If you are in the area, you must stop here. Besides the fun shopping and homemade items to buy, they sell delicious pretzels and ice cream! You can also get a cup of homemade rootbeer for 25 cents!

We stop here just for the pretzels. They are similar to Auntie Anne's style(if you have had these) but they are somehow less greasy and not "browned" on the bottom like Auntie Anne's. They also have a nice area for viewing turkeys, chickens and goats and a gift shop if you are interested. We go for the pretzels, none of... More

The soft pretzels were different than the "Bavarian Pretzel" type I've had before. They were more puffy and greasy - more like a pastry than a bread. The store had Amish touristy stuff like quilted placemats. It has a clean bathroom with a box on the toilet to leave tips.

As others have mentioned, this is a really quaint, authentic place that is more than just a simple road stand. We stopped as part of a tour and had the best soft pretzel's we've ever had that we washed down with some terrific homemade root beer and lemonade! We even bought some pretzel mix for home from some really wonderful... More

This place is wonderful! First, you can taste the homemade root beer for a quarter (honor system) outside on the porch. Inside, there are many Amish crafts for sale. They also have many breads, pies, cookies and other baked goods to choose from. I found their prices on the baked goods to be the most reasonable, compared to other bake... More
