Mattucci's Willow Cafe

Reviewed By Bill M - Northumberland, Pennsylvania

Four of us stopped in on a busy Friday night. The hostess asked if we had reservations (which we foolishly didn't make). For those that don't know, Mattucci's is 2 blocks from the football stadium, so Friday evenings during football season are incredibly busy. We replied that we didn't have reservations, but instead of sending us away or advising us to wait in the bar for a table, the hostess and another waitress somehow pulled a table out of nowhere and set it up next to the kitchen for us.

We ordered both pasta & pizza. From past experience I knew that pizza sometimes takes a little longer to make, but the entire order was at our table within 40 minutes, which was fantastic considering how crowded it was. During those 40 minutes, they brought us bread, salads & the bartender (Jason) came out to check on us to make sure we were enjoying the mixed drinks that he made. There was never a lull in the service.
Once the food arrive, the waitress was very attentive, bringing us extra hot sauce for the pizza, bringing additional drinks & bringing us to-go containers for the leftovers.
Overall, it was a perfect experience & I'm looking forward to visiting again soon.

Mays Drive-In Restaurant

Reviewed By micyer - Dripping Springs, Texas

I like this place for a lot of reasons.
First, I visited there with two lovely ladies, one 99 and one, almost 90,
And they gave me the complete history of the place. Second, my total for three sandwiches, fries and cokes around, was less than $20. Finally, the food was great.
Give mays a try, you won't be dissapointed.

Pepe's Famous Italian Ice

Reviewed By sggriff - Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania

Locals know that Pepe's is the best ice cream/Italian ice place, not only in the area, but possibly anywhere. They make all of their stuff on the premises, hundreds of flavors, with new ones all the time. Their soft ice cream is to die for, but my husband prefers their unique hard ice cream flavors and my son is all about their fantastic Italian ice. They even sell treats for our dog. Yes, you read that right! So we can literally gets something amazing for the entire family when we go. A teensy bit on the pricey side, but you truly get what you pay for in quality and quantity. GOURMET sundaes.

Stopped here for a late lunch when passing through on a recent road trip. Nothing fancy here but a nice assortment of Italian style comfort foods on the menu. They also have the usual lineup of popular appetizers. We started with zucchini fries and buffalo wings, both were outstanding!! Greatly exceeded our expectations, we were off to a very good start. Our party ordered an assortment of entrees: pork cacciatore, egg/pepper/cheese sub, chef salad, chicken parmigiana sub and a cheesesteak sub. These all ranged from very good to excellent. Service was friendly and efficient, prices are very reasonable.

Alamo Restaurant

Reviewed By T4495ZW - Winfield

First visit, probably won't go again. The only positive thing I can say is they do give a decent amount of food and it is normal restaurant prices, not typical park prices. Salad is weak, mashed potatoes dried out and need lots of gravy, guess that is why they give you a lot of gravy to pour on. Roast beef is so dried out you can't eat it, stuffed flounder is floating in butter, way too much. Service was kids and actually was not that bad. Whoever is cooking needs to be replaced and it would be a big improvement.

China King

Reviewed By Sue a - Elysburg, Pennsylvania

I say average for this restaurant because their food has gone a bit down hill . Their prices are comparable to others but their servings are smaller . The spicy recipes aren't very spicy . They say 10 minutes for your food but it's more like 25 minutes . Meat is hard to find most times in your meal . Not the same as when it first opened . It's very cold inside in the winter as they don't turn the heat on in dining area until you come in . Same with summer and air conditioning .

Loved the hot wings. A great buffalo style sauce and the wings were cooked perfectly. A better than average burger. Selection of beer could use a little updating, but there are a few craft beers on tap. Decor is very casual.
