    Finally had the scrapple and I am now a fan. Still don't want to know what's in it but it's so good. Almost beats bacon...

    The hamburger was fresh and local from the market, as well as the buns.

    Their version of Sheppards pie is beef stew with mashed potatoes piled on top. I definitely would NOT recommend it. :-(

    Like everyone in Philly, they may seem unfriendly for a second, but are actually SUPER nice. Food is great, get the Corn-hoes

    Coffee is kinda expensive. Also, when there is a dish with gravy, expect your plate to be primarily gravy with a side of food...

    If you love breakfast, make sure you get Jack McDavid's home fries aka potatos. Excellent.

    For a hearty meal of Lancaster County scrapple under two poached barnyard eggs, Down Home Diner is the place to go. Or just get some Philadelphia style scrapple on the side. Read more

    Can safely accommodate gluten- free diners for breakfast. Try a veggie scramble. Great sauteed apples too.

    Turkey Club here is the best. They use turkey straight from the bird...none of that cold cut BS.
