Great Hometown Restaurant

We were traveling south and were near Alachua at lunchtime. We didn’t want the typical highway exit restaurant and we had heard about the Conestoga. It is located on the very pretty main street of town. Conestoga has been around and family owned for many years. And they are obviously... read more

We went here for a business lunch with a large group. Several of us had the burger based on recommendations. Portions were huge. I would suggest the Jr based on the size. I ordered medium and got medium well while a colleague ordered well done and received medium rare. Cajun fries had no spice and were really just fries. Service... More

We were invited as part of a large group (about 30 ppl). Unfortunately, we were not all able to sit together, due to how they had set us up. Food was delicious. I had beef and chicken tips. I saw a burger someone else ordered and it looked like something out of a photo shoot. It was huge and cooked... More

I have been eating at Conestogas for years and have NEVER had a bad meal! We have taken large parties, gone there for lunch, etc. and always had great service. I would highly suggest you try Conestogas whenever you get a chance!

Best and biggest mushroom cheese burger you'll ever eat! This one feeds two people ease. Great service, roasted peanuts furnished and the best sweet tea.

The lady at the hotel recommend this restaurant and we were glad she did. Erin waited on us, and she was very friendly and helpful. The fried mushrooms are hand-breaded there and they are both excellent and a huge portion. I had the Stogie Burger and it was not only very good, but more than I could finish after the... More

My friends and I went on a busy Friday night. Service was pretty good, even with a full house. Food was pretty good and prices weren't too bad.

My husband and I love Conestoga's. We've been going there for almost 20 years.The food is excellent and the service has always been good. I always order the very same thing, the Road Runner (marinated chicken breast chunks with onions, peppers and brown gravy). I always get a baked potato and house salad as my two sides. Their Ranch dressing... More
