A go-with-the-flow kinda place

I have a soft spot in my heart for old fashioned diners, and they are getting harder and harder to find, so when we found the Route 30 Diner (aka Jennie's Diner) in Ronks, PA, we were delighted. OK, so - I'm used to the slightly abrupt (really matter-of-fact) approach servers in packed, high... read more

Family diner at it's worst. Obnoxious manager had issues with kids sitting on bar stools and rude to waiters and patrons. Won't see us again.

I realize that buying an iconic and deeply loved local establishment and making changes is going to be painful for longtime customers. That being said, I should have known something was "wrong" when we could walk in after 8:30 am and 3/4 of the place was empty. Have been going to Jennie's for years and LOVED it. Not anymore. This...

Stumbled across this Diner while out shopping and taking in attractions in the Lancaster area. The food is excellent. I had the philly cheese steak wrap which came with chips. Portions were huge. My husband had a gyro which he said was very good, also with large portions. Prices were very reasonable. Had I not been so full, I would... More

Horrible! Plastic cups are filthy and the water is chlorinated. No GLASS glasses available. I brought in a bottle of water and the old woman there, probably "Jennie" brazenly interrupted our meal and said, no outside drinks allowed. They could be filed with alcohol. ..ALCOHOL! At 9am???Mind you I take medication every morning with breakfast and to drink chlorinated water... More

This review is very similar to a previous post from another disappointed patron. Neat looking old style diner from the outside. Lots of trucks parked out back. When we walked in the door the cigarette smoke was sickening. Waitress went to seat us, and we just turned around and left taking the smell on our clothing with us. You could... More

You will not leave hungry! The pancakes were the size of the stools! Awesome steak n cheese and very clean. They don't accept credit cards but atm located near restrooms. The owner was there the 3 days in a row we went, she was very nice and treated us like family! My new favorite spot for home cooked meals!

Wow--delish! Went on a busy day as a break from Dutch Wonderland. I had greek chicken gyro pita with fries. Pita was warm and the tszatzki sauce (which i cannot spell) was very good. Also I swear to dog the best glass of unsweetened iced tea I"ve ever had. Love all the cakes on cake plates on the counter. PUddings.... More

We like it so much after our dinner that we went back there for breakfast the next day! The food was wonderful and the wait staff was awesome. Best diner food ever. I highly recommend the coconut cream pie.
