The waitress was nice or this would be a two star review. Three of us went in for dinner. My wife had haddock and I ordered the grilled pork chops. Third person had breakfast. (That seemed to be the best meal of the three). Service was not fast, but not the worst. My pork chops were so tough that they... More

We had an okay dinner here. Nothing really special about it or the food. Just typical diner food. Waitress was very nice

The menu is huge--they are jacks of all foods, masters of none with the exception of the high carb breakfast entrees which are pretty decent. Most of it seems to be from cans or the freezer. Servers are usually very pleasant but be sure to keep up on the health inspection reports as this place keeps getting tagged.

Wife and I stopped in for lunch with the grandkids. Just not good even by diner standards. Had eaten there years ago and got bad steak. Decided to try it again and was again disappointed.

Prices are reasonable. Plates are large and you'll never leave hungry. Service is snappy and friendly. I'm not sure I could even find a negative about this place if I wanted to. I had the London Broil open faced with mushroom gravy and home fries. I licked the plate! OK I didn't but I now wish I did! I'd have... More

Horrible food and very dirty place. The management/owners are very rude and do not care about the customers. I'm not sure how this place is still in business!

I've been to 3 diners in 3 days in Shippensburg. I rate Select as #1, Greyhound as #2, and Wagon Wheel as #3. My brother thinks Wagon Wheel is the best- so there's that. I like the hash browns at Select, and generally the food overall. The service is usually pretty good- though we got a bad waitress once. The... More
