We drove past the Route 30 Diner several times during our recent stay in Lancaster and noted that there was always a lot of cars and semi's parked in the parking lot and decided to give it a try.

Breakfast consisted of the usual items and was very good. Try the pancake as big as a hubcap. It is most filling! The refills on the coffee were never ending!.

Who can't resist a good old fashioned diner. The portions were generous, the food was very good and at a good price. The service was excellent! We will definitely return again!

We stopped for lunch and decided on hot turkey sandwiches.
This diner was dimly lit and appears to be dingy overall on the inside.
Their prices are generally high for this region. $11.00 for open hot turkey is steep.
The meal was served smothered in gravy over the entree and fries.
Once we started to eat we both discovered that the turkey was mostly thigh and leg dark meat.
Mentioned it to the server and her comment was, "yeah, that have been doing that a lot lately."
The fries were all end cuts only, about an inch long!
For $11.00 We would have liked to have white meat unless we asked for something different.
I also noticed on the menu that an extra egg on a breakfast meal was $1.50! WOW!
To top of the visit, the woman owner was arguing with most of the staff members over politics. It may be a truck stop but we are not truckers!

Loved this place, small, clean, good food and service. The minute you walk in the door you are greeted and seated. Food is very good and the price is just right. If you are traveling in the area stop in, you won't be disappointed. You must have cash though, no credit cards accepted. They do have an ATM is you are short on cash.

They say if you see a lot of tractor trailers the food is good. We have been here several times. The place is clean, the people are friendly and the food is usually good.
My husband had pork and sauerkraut which he loved, i had chicken pot pie which was OK. The place is under different ownership since we were here last. We will go back again.
