Great eating

This is a great place to just hang out with friends. The food is great and the staff are very friendly. This is a seasonal place and you can only eat outside. They have a lot of tables and a really neat creek that runs near the complex. Tons of ducks , so this is neat for children. Did I... read more

Okay this place is novel because it is only open for a few months out of the year and you feel like you are stepping back into time. The burgers are okay, not great okay. Fries are really good and a decent size portion. Prices have tended to creep up over the years. In regards to the ice cream, I... More

While camping in the area, a few of us women went to Boehringer’s Drive in. I had a turkey sub and a vanilla malt. The sub was typical, but tasty. The vanilla malt is the real reason I went and I was not disappointed, thick and creamy! My friend had a chocolate fudge Sunday and it looked great too. I... More

This is definitely THE PLACE when visiting the Adamstown/Reading area during the summer for a good old fashioned lunch/dinner/snack/ice cream experience. The restaurant is located next to a stream that provides entertainment for the kids thanks to the ducks. The menu is limited but everything is delicious as well as the ice cream that is made on site. If stopping... More

If your in Adamstown pa area there is no more popular place for ice cream. It's a throwback 1950s style eatery with picnic benches and a nice brook with ducks. The food is not for gluten free warriors but is a fun place for those naughty days.

Boehringers feels like it's been there forever. It was a crowded day when we visited - the day before they were due to close for the season. The atmosphere was fun - ate our cones at the picnic table next to the stream. My son had a burger - nothing special. They had room for a variety of ice cream... More

We frequent Boehringer's when we want to just go somewhere, sit, relax, and enjoy. The fact that they have some of the best ice cream around here just adds to the fun. Food is good and very affordable. They have outdoor seating overlooking a stream and kids and ducks play there together. Sorry it will be closing soon, but we... More

OMG! Just gotta go there! It's that simplel! We couldn't believe how many people this place draws, even on a weeknight, and we quickly became nightly regulars, eating ice cream on a picnic table while the boys fed the ducks in the little river that runs behind the property.

Boehringer's is only open for the summer so you have to get there more than once to eat outside on the picnic tables by the creek. The sloppy dog is not on the menu-just something I always order-ketchup, mustard, onion, cheese, relish, and bbq on a hot dog! Delicious. Their fries are yummy and they have good root beer. For...
