On the way back our after a being on the beach all day we stopped in for ice cream and shakes. Really good for everyone that was in our group.... More

It has a fun 50's vibe with old music and the old school style diner. The food is simple, burgers, fries, onion rings, hot dogs, but it's good... More

A friend told us that if we were in Erie we needed to eat at Sara's. We had burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries and shakes. Get coupons from their web site. $20 for the three of us to eat.

We came to Sara's on whim because 1) It wasn't Sheetz and 2) There were swarms of people, so the food must be good! We ended up coming twice, and getting essentially the same meals. The first time we ordered chicken sandwiches to go and ate at our motel. The next night we decided to dine in and also ordered... More

The food at Sara's is very good for the pricepoint. It is a great destination on your way to the beach.

Sara's is a must for our family when visiting the beach. It is always busy but don't let that discourage you, service is fast. We love the ice cream, fries, onion rings, hot dogs, chicken fingers and turkey burgers. For those looking for a more healthy choice they have grilled chicken and salad also very good. Great spots to take... More

We love to go to Sara's as soon as it opens each year, we go again and, of course, before it closes. Great place to take children to.
