“A regular eating place for us!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is a country kitchen nestled aside a babbling brook with the quaint village of Adamstown as the backdrop. Ducks swim in the creek year-round that just love diving for french fries that occasionally fall on the ground around the numerous picnic tables under 100-foot-plus shade trees. This is one of the oldest family-operated roadside eateries with a family recipe barbeque to die for!

“Regulars wait all year for the Boehringer's season to begin!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

It's certainly not fine dining, but it's the BEST of its kind in the county! Burgers? Yep! Hot dogs? Yep! French fries? Yep! Beef Barbecue? Yep! Hand-dipped, homemade ice cream? Heck yeah!!! Open approximately from Memorial Day to Labor Day and all of us fans try to get here as often as we can during the season to eat as much and as often as we can, while sitting at the ancient picnic benches watching the ducks floating by in the creek. What a wonderful way to spend a sunny day in Adamstown!

“Old fashioned, tasty fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

This place is only open seasonally. Their ice cream is homemade and is delicious. They also serve hot sandwiches, burgers and fries. There are outdoor picnic tables for seating, but no indoor seating. There is a small creek behind and it is fun to watch the ducks while eating. It's a great place to take children.

“Great local spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Boehringer's is an awesome place that is open seasonally. The food and service are always great.

They only accept cash, and you better read the signs because if you don't step up to order, you'll never get to eat.

“Great Seasonal place for the whole family to enjoy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

My husband & I love their BBQ'S & French fries. My son loves their hot dogs. They also have the famous PA red Birch Beer. And you gotta leave room for their homemade ice cream. Love their chocolate butter fudge & chocolate almond ameretto. Seating outside by the creek which always has the local ducks hanging out for the leftovers. Easy to find right off Rt. 222. And close to alot of places selling antiques.
