Another great find while visiting the Amish country was this diner. Don't judge it by the outside appearance or the tractor trailers parked out back. This is one of the few original ShinyDiners left operating in America today. Food and service was awesome, if you go away hungry it's your fault, they serve giant size portions. Don't miss this one.

Stopped by there for late lunch. We saw all the truckers there so knew it should be good. It is like a 50's diner and run by a very nice lady and a very friendly staff. We enjoyed it so much we went back for breakfast before we left. Oh, and the Apple dumplings are delicious!

Tired of same old hotel breakfast. Decided to try this diner. Very friendly staff. Good hot coffee, food average. This diner does not take any credit cards, so bring cash.

We were a bit late with our dinner and this was close by and still open. We enjoyed a light meal. The diner has a nice selection of Greek food as well as local food. Well worth a try.

Food was good and priced reasonable. It is a old diner but doesn't look that bad on the inside. They have the original blinds and ask you not to touch as they are fragile. I had ribs, but I prefer dry rub instead of heavy sauce. You can ask for an extra plate to share or they will charge you

I love diner food and this was good diner food. I had one stuffed pepper and it was enough for me. The side were good and the only problem was there was not enough room for desert. We have been there before and we will go again.

Stopped here after finding it on google. We were looking for diner type meal with my grandsons 5 & 6. Small old style diner from the 50's. We were welcomed in but that's where it ended. My grandsons were a little antsy and not quite behaving after being in the car a while. We did try and settle them but... More

I had the 2 stuffed cabbage (only was able to finish one so I had a meal of the leftovers) meal with mashed taters and candied yams and my meal was $15.62 with tax. Huge and excellent portions. Highly recommended.

Have been to this dinner a number of times and the food is always good, not cuisine but old fashioned diner food. The number of big rigs parked in the back is a good indicator of the quality. The truckers go where they find their money's worth.
