Delicious Ice Cream!

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.

Boehringers sandwich and ice cream take out is a local institution. There's almost always a line of people waiting for their order and for the most part the wait is worth it. Boehringer's has a moderate selection of hot and cold sandwiches along with fries and rings. The fries are quite good, the rings are good also. Although I've not... More

Boehringer's has been serving antique shoppers for many years, and we can see why. The food is good and the ice cream is very good... but it's the experience that brings us back whenever we're antique shopping in Adamstown. It's an old style drive-up, like the ones found on most highways before the advent of the Interstate system in the... More

Lots of flavours to choose from, very quaint area to enjoy the homemade icecream right beside a river with picnic tables.

Despite the crowded parking lot, service was very fast. We tried the chocolate almond and coconut flavors, which tasted fresh without artificial ingredients. Portion sizes are good and reasonably priced.

In my area of Lancaster County, PA, the first sign of Spring is when the open for the season sign appears at Boehringer ice cream. Many flavors, all made in-house and hand dipped. Even a sugar free version for us diabetics! Burgers, hot dogs and really good fries.

We live in SC but have family in Reading, PA where we visit several times during a year. Boehringer's rates at the top of our agenda of places to frequent. The hot dogs and burgers are nothing to write home about but the ice cream is the best--cones, sundaes, banana splits, milkshakes. You can't go wrong with any choice. Great... More

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... More
