We went for breakfast to have their peach hotcakes and waffles. Its a small diner, friendly service, and good food. Prices are good and servings are large enough! Definitely a place the locals go to.

We really like Risser's - but if you are going to go - you will want to know what to expect.

It really is a FAMILY style restaurant. You will get a lot of food, it will be relatively inexpensive and 95% of the time the service will be super friendly.

Also expect the place to be PACKED with the over-60 crowd - with lots of options on the menu to cater specifically to that age group. If that does not make you uncomfortable - then this is a great place to get from-scratch food with fresh ingredients from a man who loves his customers.

Want some fresh peaches on your Belgian Waffles? Or your pancakes? Or your French Toast? Your peaches will be fresh and sweet and perfect. Try the Apple Pancakes! Try the Raisin Bread French Toast! Try nearly anything for breakfast... You should leave very happy.

Lunch or dinner? The burgers are Black Angus and very big... They are also famous for their Schnitz and Knepp (Ham, apples and dumplings) which you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else. In fact you will find that many of their specials are of Pa. Dutch origin.

They have a salad bar that includes more options for homemade soup than you'd think would be legal. They also have a bunch of specials that rotate every day and are planned out far in advance. The specials do not appear to be a way to offload whatever excessive leftovers they have from the week - but to be actual special offerings that people clamor for and that they offer periodically.

So there it is. If you don't mind a family restaurant atmosphere and all that goes with that - this is an excellet choice - especially at breakfast.
