We have passed Sara's multiple times while visiting Presque Isle and decided to stop by. It is your typical diner food, but in a very cool atmosphere. There are multiple toppings for dogs, burgers, and chicken that you put on yourself as well as seasonings to put on the curly fries. This is a very unique place and can't wait... More

Exactly what you would expect at the entrance to a beach area....foot long hot dogs, onion rings, ice cream, and other treats! Always stop at Sara's whenever in Erie during the summer months. The foot long Smith's hot dogs are a tradition, as well as the hand made onion rings - thin, breaded, and greasy! Don't forget the orange &... More

Limited menu, but great fixings available. Food was good. We enjoyed seeing the old diner and all of the nostalgic items around. plenty of space to eat in or outside. Fast service even with a large crowd.

Sara's has great food & it's a perfect place to stop before or after going to the beach. We stop here every time we go to Presque Isle. Our kid & grandkids went with us last year and they also loved it. We also stopped for ice cream on our way to the beach to watch the sunset.

I was so looking forward to out visit to Sara's but I was very disappointed. The service was slow, the food was very greasy and seating uncomfortable. It is a fun atmosphere and I'm hoping I came on an off day.

Step back 50 years here and enjoy a good burger or dog with fries! On your way out from Presque Isle or Waldamer Park it's easy to find on a good location.

Sara's is a definite stop when we come to Erie and they're open for the season. Great milkshakes, burgers and fries. Fun decor and picnic tables outside (and inside if you prefer) provide a great summer experience. Combined with a trip to Presque Isle and it's a perfect day!

Stopped here for lunch the other day with 8 friends and we all enjoyed our food. They have delicious and huge hot dogs, fried were done perfect and the onion rings were great. The pickles were cut lengthwise so that was a nice change from the usual small round ones. Will definitely stop here again when we are in Erie.

My family and I come here every time we are in the area. The atmosphere is fun and laid back and the food is great. My husband really enjoys the Italian beef sandwich and my kids love the orange twist ice cream.
