After a 34 mile bike ride in western PA, we drove home to Baltimore. Needing gas and a restroom we happened to stop at this most unusual station. This family owned deli / restaurant with high tops, family seating and a espresso bar offered wounderful...service and delicious items. Home cooked specials such as meatball sub; fresh made for you pizzas and drinks. We split a delicious and NY styled Reuben sandwich, had my espresso gassed up. All great. Not your typical gas or truck stop. Not fried chicken but it did serve fresh stove top fish and lots of sweet delights.More

I usually approach gas station restaurants with a bit of trepidation. It was no different when I tried the door that said Cafe only to find it locked. So then we went through the main doors, and what a surprise! A chalkboard listing the day's..."not the usual gas station" fare (Asian shrimp wrap??). Delicious fresh baked goods in many styles. And super friendly folks asking "is this your first time here?" My daughter, granddaughter and I had a wonderful lunch and then found that there was also an excellent ice cream counter. The special of the day was Holy Cannoli - broken cannoli shells mixed with cannoli filling and vanilla ice cream. It was fantastic! As we left, our commentary revolved around that first question, is this your first time here? Because anybody who has will find a reason to go back, that's for sure!More

Went to get gas at Citco station. Went into store and was blown away by cheesecakes and cakes baked on premises. I got a Hawaiian wedding cake and my wife got a blueberry cheesecake. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE SURPRISE to find this gem.

Stop in the Oak Barrel for lunch, thought that the Turkey-Cranberry sandwich would be tasty. Reality was far different. The turkey has the consistency of any brand sliced and packaged ham from a meat freezer. I didn't notice any cranberry, just a mayo sauce mixture...with almost no identifiable components. There was lettuce, but nothing else. To top it off, they put a Raspberry type vinaigrette dressing as their secret sauce. That was a new one for me. I won't return for the food.More

My second time going to Oak Barrell just for the Cheesecake. A two hour drive for me, but it's worth the ride. I only get carryout. People are very nice and helpful. Atmosphere very welcoming. I always get the Homemade Chips Old Bay which are...very good. My last visit I did get the Chicken Salad Sandwich which was also good, I will be going back soon.More

Oh, I hope this adorable road trip stop doesn't get more crowded. Have now been twice to the Oak Barrel and it has been the absolute perfect alternative to a fast food lunch on a long haul drive through Western Maryland. This is clearly a...chef driven restaurant attached to a gas station. Enjoyed a Shrimp Po Boy sandwich featuring lightly, and freshly fried shrimp along with a home made remoulade sauce. I also enjoyed a side of broccoli slaw dressed in a sweet tangy sauce. Lots of fun local sodas to try and amazing baked goods by the giant slice available as well. Be warned, one piece can easily be shared by four people.More

Though we live about a 40 mintue drive from Oak Barrel, we often take a ride when we are craving their fabulous reuben sandwich! They give you about a pound of corned beef in the sandwich along with plenty of saurkraut, cheese and sauce making...it an awesome meal! The french fries are delicous as well and the huge assortment of desserts is just plain heavenly. Don't let the gas station exterior fool you - there are great food and goodies inside!!!More

Love gas station gems! This restaurant/country store was the perfect stop on our way to Deep Creek. The turtle cheesecake was outstanding! You will want to buy all their flavors. The perfect rustic decor and delicious breakfast sandwiches. Definitely make a detour here!

When you drive up and see a restaurant attached to a Citgo gas station, you wonder what you will find. And then you find out that it is an amazing cafe! We had awesome sandwiches there in the evening. We stayed at 7 C's Cabins...about 15 min down I-68 and came back for breakfast in the morning. Staff was very welcoming and professional. Food was prepared efficiently. We bought a delicious and very tempting Cinnamon Roll to take with us.More

We were in the area sightseeing and had read good reviews about this place. Pulling on the lot we saw a gas station and were hesitant, but many good meals happen at those places. Jackpot! It's awkward ordering, paying and then sitting at a table...in the back room but it works, The turkey and cranberry is incredibly loaded and delicious. There is a huge pile of meat and vegetables on grilled sourdough. What a treat. The shrimp po boy is also piled high with tasty seafood and delicious spicy mayo. The fries are really good also. There are fresh baked goods and premade sandwiches and meals in the store. This was a big hit with reasonable prices and huge portions. Only minutes from Hancock if you're in the area.More

This was an ideal spot for our lunch break on a trip to Western Maryland and the reviews made it seem a good experience. It is not a "sit down and take an order" sort of place. As you enter and pass the cashier you...see an "order here" sign ahead. They have a very large menu board on the wall. You place your order; get a ticket with your order info; go select your drink; chips if you want; pay the cashier; are give a holder with a number; enter the dinning area and find a seat; and then your meal is served. 1) Staff was friendly. 2) Meal was promptly delivered. 3) Reasonable prices. We did not see any presence of the "hand made ice cream" mentioned in another review. Only say soft serve and no one was in that area. Worth the stop.More

Our AirBNB referred us here for dinner. We weren't expecting much seeing that it was by a gas station - don't judge a book by it's cover!!! It was so good! Fresh food made hot. We actually went here twice during our stay. Lunch was...great - cheesesteak was really good! And then we went for breakfast and both had the southwest omelet. Very good as well! Lots of fun treats. We brought a walnut cinnamon roll home for my mom and she raved about it. Homemade jellies etc. It was great! Highly recommend this place. The outdoor space is really nice as well - would be good for a large group.More

There are not many options so we had low expectations for a restaurant attached to a gas station. It was a very nice surprise! Excellent burgers. We liked the macaroni and cheese and potato salad too. The staff is very friendly. The desserts look so...amazing that we’re thinking about stopping by to pick one up on our drive back.More
