great as usual

As usual, Sara's was a wonderful place to stop for a quick and delicious lunch. The new bacon cheeseburger was excellent and the fries and hot dogs are always good. Not to mention that it is just a fun place to eat.

This is a great place to have a meal at Presque Isle in Erie, PA. The decor is built around 50's era Chevrolets and Studebakers, one of which forms the base of the serving counter. You'll also find 50's vintage gas pumps and service station signs. The burgers, and hot dogs are exceptionally good, with rolls that are baked fresh... More

So many screaming, running & misbehaving kids really put us off. Food was just okay, shakes were yummy. Probably will not eat in again, only drive thru if we ever return. Prices reasonable though

Came here because it's one of a few places that allows dogs in the outside eating area. Had the grilled chicken salad which was very good, chicken was seasoned deliciously. Others had fish sandwich and Philly cheesesteak and both got good reviews. Outside seating area has rocks for ground coverage, a bit tricky to get a stroller around and dogs... More

The atmosphere is certainly casual, it is where you see everyone in Erie, fun place to take grand kids and they even have doggie sundaes! Certainly not gourmet but outside eating at the beginning of the beach,

Me, my husband, and my 5 month old daughter decided to take a trip to Erie for a little get-away. Sara's was recommended to me by a friend. We both got hamburgers, curly fries, and a hot fudge milkshake. My only complaint is the hamburgers, while pictures with lettuce and tomato, came with nothing on them at all. The fries... More

At the entrance to Presque Isle Park we have driven by this place and this time decided to stop for lunch. While the menu is mainly hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, fries, and onion rings and a tad pricey - it is definitely worth it. I had a bacon cheeseburger and my mother a turkey burger. Also, we split an onion... More

We only got ice cream and it was wonderful! Very cool vintage decorations. The bathroom was out back behind the restaurant but clean. Very busy place!

If you get hungry when you're at the beach, it's always great to have a nice selection of nostalgic food. I highly recommend the orange sherbet! Loved it all.

Sara's doesn't serve health food ... well, maybe mental health food. We had those terrific Smith's hot dogs, made right in Erie, served with a good bun that stands up to them (because the natural casing is purposefully a little chewy). We also ordered curly fries and onion rings - too much for two people but good. Sara's is bright... More
