Rey Azteca

Reviewed By bjdav - Middletown, DE

Can't say enough about our server. He was very friendly and efficient. I had the veggie burrito which came with rice and beans. While the burrito was very good it was a tad runny. The beans and rice were ok. My dining partner ordered off the menu, of which they were very responsive and had veggie quesadellas which she thought were good. As others have said the chips were good but the salsa was a tad mild. All in all it was a nice dinner!

Molly's Ice Cream

Reviewed By Michael P - Williamsburg, Virginia

OK, this trip with another couple didn't start out to be an Ice Cream Tour but that's what evolved. Molly's was our first ice cream stop and set the bar really high. The salted caramel was excellent, and all enjoyed their ice cream. Easy on, and off, the road, and easy to find. Nice area to socialize out front in good weather.

I love that there is a more modern progressive type business in this town. Best coffee anyway you want it. Convient location. Clean upbeat atmosphere and great staff. Wish they had a few more tables though

Summit Diner

Reviewed By john m

This place doesn’t look like much but dang the breakfast is outstanding!! Got the breakfast special with scrambled eggs, homefries, wheat toast, sausage with a side of French toast. Huge portion and I shouldn’t ate so much food but it was all perfectly cooked for $4.99 plus $1.99 for the French toast, can’t beat it for flavor or price.

Olde Towne Bakery & Cafe

Reviewed By Pfknitrn

My husband and I decided to eat breakfast out today before grocery shopping. We were completely expecting normal breakfast food. We were surprised at their breakfast menu and especially the build your own breakfasts. Both of us loved our food and then had to buy some sweet treats and pumpernickel bread to take home. We are already excited to come back!!!!

Pine Grill

Reviewed By SayCheese - NJ-NY

Loved it so much we went twice in 2 days! Extensive menu, nothing super fancy, but so loved the family style food and environment. Hot sliced sandwiches are very good. Really enjoyed the buffalo fries - standard fries coated in buffalo sauce. Note they charge you $.50 for extra dressing for your salad. Lots of parking in back. Staff super friendly. It seemed quite popular with the older crowd, but we enjoyed ourselves. Can also purchase honey from them as a a gift. Looks like they had a room you could use for special funcitons.

Moo Echo Dairy

Reviewed By rebboeb - Somerset, Pennsylvania

Just love this place. The Stolzfus family are just the greatest people. The baked goods are so fresh and the ice cream is made right there. What could be better.

Are you looking for a special pickled relish, an unusual type of chow-chow or some other kind of wonderful PA Dutch jelly or jam, then you're at the right place. They even have cheese curds like you find in Wisconsin.

If you want homemade goodness & variety, stop at Moo Echo. If you're not from the area, the drive is worth it. Stay and have lunch, great sandwiches & subs made from high quality meat and cheese. You won't be disappointed

Tried their molten lava cake ala mode and it is devine! Banana split should have marachino cherries and my friend's did not. Milkshakes are always a classic treat. Dilly bars are my eldest child's favorite and she loves the cherry one. Very friendly and enthusiastic staff made a lovely stop this visit. I recommend stopping here.

Ruby Tuesday

Reviewed By Louis59 - Charlotte, North Carolina

Ruby Tuesday had a fantastic salad bar 20 years ago. And then for 15 years, they didn't. They'd removed many of the better items, pared the offerings way back, served it on small plates, and then...well...it was simply boring.

Tonight, I revisited Ruby Tuesday for the first time in years and wow, they're baaaaaack! The salad bar was innovative, with pico de gallo, wasabi peas, chopped cucumber, cilanto lime dressing, along with the old standards. I ordered a grilled chicken breast on the side and it came hot and perfectly seasoned.

Great service, a visit by the manager to ask if dinner was good, clean restaurant, and a super fresh salad bar with a nice variety. I'll definitely be back!
