Conestogas is a family owned restaurant serving southern comfort food. Our group of 5 was immediately seated, our server came to the table and took our drink orders. The menu is a little sparse, but we ordered a fried mushroom appetizer, liver and onions, a steak, hamburger, chicken sandwich and fried shrimp dinner. Most entrees included 2 sides, I chose...

A friend and I split the Stogie Burger, a full pound of good quality beef. The hamburger was seasoned well and being a pound was great to split and came with a choice of one side. We chose the sweet potato fries extra crispy and they were probably the best we've ever had. They also serve beer and wine. There... More

This restaurant has been in our small town for over 20 years. It has the BEST steaks! The service is great and we always bring our friends there when they visit. My sister in Michigan is still talking about the Key Lime Pie. It is definitely worth a drive to our town and to Connestogas. You all come on now,... More

This place opened a few weeks ago. I have been three times and it is awesome. hand made tamales- both chix-pork- and veggie. Great drink selection. Also beer available. Hours vary, but as of now they are Thursday thru Sunday 12 noon to 6 p.m. or so. Go early because they sell out sometimes. Very reasonable.

We have not eaten here in many years and decided on a whim to see what they had to offer. The food was good along with the side salad. The portions are generous, my husband had the biggest baked potato we have ever seen at a restaurant. My only complaint is that they have the tables packed together which makes... More

Our service was great and the food was fantastic. Good southern cooking. Their sweet potato fries were heavenly. This restaurant is well worth coming to for a great meal, great service, and friendly local banter.
