Only one complaint

Never had anything from Boehringers that wasn't delicious. Only complaint is the half the year that I have to go through Boehringers withdrawal when they're closed for the season.

We took a small road trip from Philadelphia area to Adamstown for some antiquing. After early dinner at Stoudt's Brewpub I googled ice cream and Boehringer's came up as 1-mile down the road. We only had ice cream but it was delicious! Friendly teenage servers, fast service and nice atmosphere to sit outside at a picnic table (only seating available)... More

Before the week was over, we returned two more times. My second visit I ordered a chocolate milk shake. It was creamy, real chocolaty and it had... More

Food is great as well, had burgers, I think, and once we ate there, we went back another time before we left the area. We had our... More

Local favorite. Boehringers has many good sandwiches and french fries. Highlight of your trip is their homemade ice cream and birch beer. Downside - parking lot small.

Okay, I'm old enough to remember ordering a burger in the '70's and young enough to have a 13-year-old son. (You figure it out) We stopped at Boehringers today for the first time on the way to a wedding in New York. We are native Lancastrians, but from the southern end so we don't get here that often.

Old school, great food, homemade ice cream, a very busy place. Only draw back is it is closed over winter season.
