Eggs benedict was excellent - hollandaise was perfect! Chicken & dumplings was more like chicken stew. Not much flavor and no dumplings .... plenty of noodles though. I believe we had a disconnect with the description 😣

We have driven by this diner many years, on our annual trip to Lancaster, and viewed it with interest. Finally got the chance to try it for lunch today and loved it. Fantastic original diner interior. Add to that, delicious food in generous portions with reasonable prices. But by far the best feature was our server, he was fantastic, couldn't... More

We enjoyed a late meal here after everything else in Ronks was closed. Menu offers specialties. Service was very good. Food was enjoyable but not above average.

The place was very small and the food was very bland. The service was terrible. We waited about 15 minutes for a drink. The server ignored us. She was too busy flirting with another man at the counter. We decided to stay and see how the food was. What a mistake that was. We both decided on a cheeseburger and... More

hello, we appreciate the info. but I would have to disagree a little unfortunately. I'm not sure if you ate our diner and here is why. We have an owner or manager on ALL day, sometimes even 2 at the same time especially during peak hours. So I am very sorry if you had this experience. We have quite a... More

Unless you want chain restaurants, it's hard to find a place to eat on Sunday in Lancaster County, and we were happy to find the Route 30 Diner. It's a very friendly place where the staff seems to know many of the customers. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. They have a nice selection and the... More

We stopped at the Route 30 Diner for lunch on our way through Lancaster. The service was good, fast and reasonably priced. The menu offered lots of home-cooked foods. I had chicken corn soup; hubby had grilled ham and cheese. Clearly this is a place that serves locals and truckers, always a good sign.

Thank Sue A
