I have been traveling to York twice a year for over 10 years and only tried this place now because of a group dinner meeting. The waitress was extremely attentive as well al the manager and other waitresses. The place was busy but extremely efficient. The menu is quite lengthy and diverse - over 15 sides alone. I feel that... More

Don't be fooled by the outside and diner-like interior and the low prices: this place is first class. The menu has some specialty items and there is a great selection. This is off the beaten path for a Route 30 traveler, but worth the detour.

I have been going on and off for 30 years, always for breakfasts. Staff is very affable. The place is clean. Specials are priced very good. Coffee is good as well.

Friends recommended this eatery several months ago and finally tried it. So wish we had sooner. We went for breakfast, Sat. morning around 10:30. Seat yourself, waitress was quick to offer menus and back to take orders. We got creamed chipped beef over toast and homegrown. IT FILLED THE PLATE!!! Good price too, I think it was around $8 each.... More

Nice restaurant within walking distance from the ball stadium and downtown York. Family friendly and good for business meetings.

We visited our son who attends York College and we wanted something off campus for breakfast. We found this place and it was packed (which tells me that its good). The prices were cheap and they gave you a lot of food. Looking forward to coming again.

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...
