Great food. Great service. Great pricing. Went there with my wife and puppy. Never had a problem. Lady really nice when we went through drive through. Once a girl saw the puppy, she called a manager over, who was very nice, and gave us free ice cream for the puppy. It's not about that. It's about the customer service, they... More

We stopped here for ice cream and we watched the fireworks at the amusement park. It was a great evening. They are known for their hot dogs and ice cream...it held true. A must stop. Just be careful parking and leaving.

My family lives in Erie and anytime we go to the peninsula we make a stop here. Can't drive by without getting lunch and a milkshake!

A nostalgic restaurant that is the perfect dovetail to picturesque summer days at Presque Isle State Park. The food is great American fare at reasonable prices. It's a must visit of Erie.

This is a great spot to stop for a meal or a treat after the beach or waldameer. They are well known for their orange sherbet cones (with or without vanilla twist) but their peanut butter milkshakes are great as well. Footlong hot dogs with their own spicy relish are another favorite. Often gets crowded when the weather is nice,... More

Always an excellent place to go for grill food and ice cream. We love it here and it is always a treat to visit. Also close to Presque Isle State Park and Waldameer.

My husband and I had heard rave reviews about Sara's so we stopped by with high hopes. The food was so tasteless we actually threw it all away and went elsewhere. Go for an interesting experience but not for tasty food. They serve overpriced, tasteless food only worthy of the worst cafeteria.

This trip was my second time here at Sara's. Just as amazing as the first! Superb service, food was ready in just a couple of minutes and everything was cooked well. I'll be honest, I'm a little upset Sara's exists, because I wish I wish I would have beaten them to it! They have THE perfect location! And they chose... More

Fast service and yummy diner food make this a great place for the whole family. They have the basic hamburger and hotdogs, but provide stations full of an assortment of toppings. The curly fries and the ice cream were delicious.
