We visited on our travels on I 81 North. We were promptly greeted and seated quickly. The wait staff was very friendly and the fool was good with generous portions for the price. We will visit this place on our next road trip.

Very underwhelmed by this place. Can't understand the reviews. Toast was cold. Potatoes were bland. Sausage was tasteless. Wife's scrambled eggs were overcooked and pounded flat. Would never eat there again.

Very good, all-American food. Prices good, lots of choices; fresh salad not the best but ok for the price.

Nov, 2017. I stopped in for a late breakfast. Reher promptly served OJ, a poached egg on dry Rye toast and Canadian Bacon. As the Germans say, "Das Essen war lecker!" the food was tasty! I will be back. Open 24/7.

Take exit 52A onto Carlisle Pike (US Hwy 11). It will be on your left in a little over 1/2 mile, next to the Days Inn.
