Philly, Gettysburg and Hershey..where to eat

jnk Aug 16, 2007 06:39 AM

We're spending a few days traveling through these areas and need some interesting places to eat. We will be going for a cheese steak and I'll get the info from other threads, but we're looking for other fun/good food places besides the sandwich. We've got a 13 yr old that eats anything so it should be a little easier. Our only prerequisite is that it's not "haute". Thanks in advance for your info.

    Do no responses mean that there's nowhere good to eat in Gettysburg and Hershey? Yikes!

      The Dobbin House on Steinwehr Ave is a very good place. The tavern downstairs is informal and a super atmosphere. Upstairs is formal with more choices and higher priced. O'rorkes on Steinwehr too has good sandwichers and salads. Good place for a drink also. La Bella Italia on York St has great salads, pizza and sandwiches. You can also grab a bottle of beer. Would not go to Appalachian Brewing Company. The one and only time I was there the service was terrible and the manager was blowing his nose and then wraping silver....YUCK! And yes Gettysburg is my home town!
