Family-owned; It's been there nestled against the creek filled with wild ducks and overhead old shade protecting the many picnic tables from the hot sun for about 60 years; passed down through same-family generations with the same menu pleasing locals from miles around with original recipes for (my favorite) barbecued ground beef seasoned to perfection with a closely-guarded herbal recipe...

This place is really hit or miss. I've been here several times and it is really lacking consistency. I always go during happy hour. My first trip here was great. We ordered wings, clams, a cheesesteak and fries. The wing were good, clams were amazing, fries were good and cheesesteak sucked. I ordered the fries with bacon, jalapeño, and cheese.... More

Boehringer's is a regional institution. It is open only during the warmer months and is on PA272, which for many years was US222. There is SLIGHTLY less thru traffic passing by due to the 4-lane highway that now serves the Reading-Lancaster route, but Boehringer's is always worth a stop. Burgers, fries, MILKSHAKES(!!!) are the key items. All prepared with love... More

We stopped for burgers, which were OK, but loved the homemade ice cream. It reminded us of the road stands our parents would stop at to get us ice cream.

Went there on a recommendation; knew it was good by all the local cars that were there. Lots of people in line but really quick service. Servers really nice even though it was really hot outside. Cheeseburger and California Ham sandwich with fries and a Diet Coke for under 10 bucks! So tasty; brought me back decades in terms of... More

We walked in and after a short line ordered the California ham sandwich and a cheeseburger. (Recommended by a gentleman in line who had been coming for year). This local joint is SO worth the wait, the lines moved along, the food was wonderful and lunch was so reasonably priced. Best ice cream in town too!

Hot dogs and hamburgers, fries and chicken menu reminiscent of the 50's & 60's with an ice cream parlor too! If you see a line, still stop as they keep it moving! Delicious food and desserts!

Having living in Lancaster for a number of years and always enjoying our times at Boehringer's, we still return though we now live several states away. It's a very peaceful location, right on the bank of a small stream, with picnic tables under the trees and plenty of parking spaces for those who opt to eat their treats in their... More
