I was anxious to have lunch at Jennie's diner. It is easy to find since it is directly located on Rt 30 past SR 896. My daughter joined me and we saw they had new specials. I ordered the chicken with cheese(your choice of cheese) on a pretzel bun. It came with a choice of side. I chose the Italian wedding soup. She had grilled cheese with bacon.
The wedding soup had cabbage in it which was delicious. Both meals came with potato chips. We skipped the chips to save room for dessert. The sandwiches were fabulous!!!
We had a good waiter who attended to our needs and the two of us split a delicious apple crumb pie for dessert.
The diner had a retro steel exterior, Inside there were military pictures but I found that each table had a flip cd player where you could play a number of songs for various prices. That's a long way from the old style 45 records one used to find in diners.
Knowing in advance it was cash only I came prepared and there also is a sign at the cashier's desk telling you that same information. Please make a note of it should you come. I love the convenience to area attractions and the old diner style experience

Travelling through Lancaster County and looking for a great place to stop for something to eat you will find a traditional diner that is a picture out of the scrapbook that is really enjoyable. The food at Jennies is really great, the service is excellent and quick and the prices don't hurt the wallet. Portion sizes are very good and if you walk away hungry it is your own fault. You will be well satisfied. Highly recommended without hesitation.
