This is a fun restaurant, with low prices and a variety of foods. They always have at least half a dozen soups of the day, and the soups are good and homemade. I especially like the Maryland crab soup. The menu otherwise is mostly sandwiches and burgers, with gyros for more variety. The ice cream is homemade and delicious. The... More

We stopped here for dinner. I had the chef salad which was ample but average. The service was average. Simple foods at a reasonable price. The banana split for dessert boasted some of the best vanilla ice cream I've tasted. The place was packed and that's always a good sign.

Have recently eaten here twice for dinner and ice cream. The menu is not fancy or complicated but the food does taste fresh and homemade. Mostly sandwiches (hot and cold) and salads for food. Usually a BBQ special. First time I was there it was hamburger BBQ which I had and was a filling portion. The second time it was... More

My husband and I went to the Udder Choice in Ephrata, PA for breakfast. The waitress placed an incorrect order for me. When I explained that I think I received the incorrect food, she never apologized, just said that it will take a while to receive my correct order. I was completely shocked --- she made the mistake --- and... More

The Udder Choice is a good choice for a quick casual bite to eat. It is basically soup and sandwiches, but the soup and sandwiches are pretty darn good. It is a barn of a place and it is noisy. We were there when at least thirty children were there to order icecream. It got alot more noisy after that!... More

My family and I went out for breakfast at The Udder Choice in Ephrata, PA. We are locals not tourists. But this was our first time to this particular place. The waitresses first words were "What do you want?" Not a "Hello, my name is..." or "Welcome to..." First impressions are very important. Not a smile or anything! NOW... the... More

We enjoyed a step back into time. Many old fashioned signs decorated the restaurant. I enjoyed my pretzel roll sandwich and yummy ice cream dessert.

We've passed this restaurant several times and each time the parking lot was full, so we decided that if the lot is full that's a sure sign the food is good. Well, the food was great and the atmosphere is really different. The restaurant is like a huge barn with milking buckets for lights, metal signs all over the walls... More

Probably the best deal for ice cream in the area. A "small" sundae consists of one generous scoop of home made ice cream (many flavors to choose from), syrup, whipped cream & a cherry on top for $2.50. Most of the soups are home made & delicious. The sandwiches are mostly very good & plentiful with the roast beef being... More
