If you're in Alachua, go there!

Best place in the area to eat. Not fancy, pretty worn and basic, but the food is wonderful if you like home cooking and the prices are reasonable. Best hamburger steak I've ever had + huge sweet potato fries.

This is well worth the drive from Gainesville! This was at least my 20th visit and I have never been disappointed! It is hard not to order their namesake, the "Stogie" Burger. It is cooked to order, to your temperature, and to perfection. It comes with steak fries, lettuce, tomato and pickles, and you can add your choice of cheeses.... More

My wife, in-laws, kids and I recently went as a birthday dinner. The food size portions are very generous. I really enjoyed my steak. This Cell that came with it with the house dressing as recommended by the waitress was very good. The service was actually fantastic. My daughter enjoyed her food. My father in law was not satisfied with... More

I was with a group of 11 at 6pm on a Friday night. We called ahead and they were able to squeeze us in. I'm glad we went. Even with the restaurant full, our service was excellent and everyone's order was correct. I had the Stoagie Junior (burger). The junior is 1/2 pound of fresh meat! It was moist and... More

We discovered Conestogas a few years ago and always stop in when we are traveling through Alachua. We get the Stoagie Junior, but it is half a pound and still too big. That didn't stop us from eating it all though. Their sweet potato fried are perfection. We've never tried anything else on the menu. as we dream about the... More

This is a great little restaurant with home cooking. I have been there four or five times and can never finish my entrée. Love the peanuts while I wait!

We used to go to this place at least once a month. About 8 years ago we had a bad night here and decided to give it a rest. On Saturday night we returned (first time in eight years). We sat at a table against the wall that did not allow one of us to sit opposite the other due... More
