“Board of Health Needs a Suprise Check on this Dump”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Traveling to the area we wanted to enjoy PA dutch food. I went here and I was greated by servers who seemed like they wanted to be anywhere but there. The floor was filthy and our feet stuck to the floor as we were led to a picinic style table. Ordered a chicken sandwhich and the chicken was almost all fat and had an off smell. I lifted the bun to look at the chicken and noticed there was mold on the bun. I gave the food back to the waitress and we left telling them we didn't feel like we should pay the bill since the food was not fit for human consumption. The server just looked at us, shrugged her shoulders, and said what ever.

“ANOTHER PLACE THAT HAS GONE DOWN HILL”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Used to love this place for BBQ and funnel cake after browsing THE OUTHOUSE. However, the last time we went I felt sick afterwards.

“Stay Away”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The barbeque was loaded with over sugared BBQ sauce and the portions were very small. The service left a lot to be desired, They did not seem to very customer oriented. Would definitely stay away from this place.

“Jakey's Amish Barbeque”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Didn't like this indoor outdoor eatery nearby my favorite Out House novelty store.

Though they are looking to make ribs their center of attraction, other foods are available.
