Back to the 50's

Such a cute place to dine! You feel like you're moving back to the 50's! Food is good, service is good and prices are right! Try to hit this when we are out that direction!

Soda Jerk Diner & Diary Bar had a huge menu that even the pickiest of eaters will find something that they like. You get big portions of high quality food for great prices. The atmosphere was also very friendly and fun. This is a place that you can bring your family to, especially with the ice cream bar!

This is a retro diner that has all the trimmings of a roadside facility, with flowing coffee served by friendly waitstaff (I got called "honey" by more than one). They lost me when the condiments on the table featured "breakfast syrup" and a buttery substance that was way too white to be natural. In my mind, if you're going to... More

We stopped here for dinner after visiting family at a local nursing home. Large menu with lots of options serving good quality diner food. Grilled cheese and bacon, ham & cheese club with a shared onion ring appetizer. Got a chocolate milkshake for the road. Very good. Will be back on our next trip to Hummelstown.

I expected great food, but it was average. New menu, just started the day I was there on July 16, 2015. Server brought my omelet without cheese, returned when I signaled her, realized her error, grabbed my plate out from under me, minutes later I had the correct omelet. Chocolate Chip cookie dough milkshake was tasty, but all the ingredients... More

We stopped here on our way to Hershey Park for lunch. The restaurant is very big with plenty of seating, and the staff were all very friendly. The food wasn't amazing, but it was definitely good.

Friendly and convenient diner near HersheyPark. The food is good, fast and plentiful. The homemade oatmeal is delicious - enormous portion. Fresh coffee and service with a smile.

The diner has a little bit of everything for everyone. I had the roasted chicken - literally half a chicken. There was a lot of food and well-priced. Service was great and we were out of there in 90 minutes (including dessert) - not bad for a group of 7.

I had the lasagna, and my daughter only had a grilled ham and cheese with chips. We did also order 2 sundaes and a milkshake. But for basically... More

Fun place to go with the family or on a date. Laid back/relaxed standard american food but with some unexpected selections. Also great ice cream creations. Have an outdoor deck
