Many people in Germany reduce the American Kitchen to Burgers and Hotdogs. Of course this is as wrong as the believe they all wear cowboy hats. The US have a long tradition of diners and family restaurants where you can get lots of very good american food. The Central Family Restaurant close to the center of York, PA, is one... More

This was a great old-style diner breakfast - exactly the type that I like! Very good value for money and tasty food.

Stop here almost every morning I work. Although I confuse my waitresses with coffee or tea each morning because I switch back and forth they always ask ! The food is great and the price is right, take the chance and stop in! While your at it, check out the history on the walls.

The outside of the restaurant is not very eye catching but it was close to our motel. It was a peasant surprise. The food was good (I had the buffalo burger and French onion soup, and my wife had the chicken stir fry). Too full for dessert but we did bring a piece of the homemade chocolate cake w/ peanut...

I was in the area for a tournament and tapped my old trusty tripadvisor for a breakfast spot. Found this place and stopped in on a Sunday. It was packed. This is a little old place with really good food. The service was prompt and courteous and the food was pretty good. I had the smothered turkey, bacon, cheese and... More

This restaurant is my husband's favorite place to eat. The menu has standard items and then they always have specials. The specials are the way to go and keep in mind, this is in PA Dutch country so you'll find rare finds. A very friendly place with good food!

The best thing about Central is the people period. Everyone is so darned friendly. Prices are too high on most items, so we don't visit as much as we did. Good crab cakes.

Visiting York for two days, we liked the ads we read so decided to try it. Decor everything was like stepping back into 1950. Well maybe not the prices. We needed to celebrate a tough day and ordered big time ie the Prime Rib (not a real prime rib) and shrimp stuffed with something and cheese. The shrimp was good... More

We go to Central Family restaurant for breakfast often. The wait staff is so friendly. The are very engaged with their customers and make you feel that they enjoy being your server. Sometimes while we are seated or waiting for a table, the manager will bring around small cups of juice for free or even a sample of their delicious... More
