The food is good and there are deals that can't be beat - such as half priced burgers on Tuesdays. The service was very friendly and fast. If in Alachua seek it out.

Variety on the menu is good as is the food. Large baked potatoes, good hamburgers and one so large not many could eat. I like the side salads; good size and not just ordinary.

Recommended by the front desk at my hotel this turned out to be a great find! Don't come if you're expecting high quisine. But if you like good down home cookin' you won't be disappointed! I enjoyed the peanuts while waiting for my meal. The service was attentive and pleasant. I'll go back again next time I'm in town. A... More

Great place to eat, but you don't always get your meat prepared as you ordered it. Approximately half the time, it is done more than I requested. Otherwise, they have great service, good prices and generous portions.

Very good food and great service. Peanuts to snack on before the meal and an ice cream store located on premises. Definitely give the burger a try and sweet potato fries with “swamp sauce”.

It is hard to come by good service, but we got lucky this time. The food is decent, but I have had better elsewhere. Everything in the place, down to the dishes, is outdated, but I guess it adds to the charm. We will definitely return.

Good steaks, great meal, decent price. Service was great and the peanuts on the table reminded me of a restaraunt back in Ohio.

I've eaten at Conestogas many times during visits with my Son, who lives in Alachua. The various meals we've ordered have always been delicious. I think they serve the biggest and best Chicken Fried Steak that I've ever had anywhere! Service is great. They also have an old-fashioned ice cream parlor serving Blue Bell ice cream and various treats/small toys... More
