Thunderbird is family owned and operated since 1956. We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a friendly environment with a hometown feel. Known for our cheese steaks, said to be the best around. Plenty of other good food options from salad to stromboli. If your passing through town stop in. Thank you.
