      Obviously it's too late now, but for future reference....I highly recommend the Hershey Pantry, out of town on Chocolate Ave (I think it's choc. ave.)---give it a try for lunch or dinner.....

        The best restaurants in Hershey tend to be in Harrisburg. We have enjoyed DeMarco's on Chocolate Avenue and I have seen Al Mediterraneo recommended several times. I would also second Stoudt's in Adamstown for dinner on the way to Hershey.

          In Hummelstown, which is right next to Hershey, there's Al Mediterraneo. It's a terrific authentic Italian restaurant (in other words, not red sauce). http://www.al-mediterraneo.com/

            wow - that looks great - I have spent many a night in nearby Grantville and wish I knew about this place!

              Stop at Stoudts Brewery on your drive. You'll have better luck in Harrisburg than in Hershey, try Mangia Qui or Bayou

                That's a tough one as Hershey is not only the capital for chocolate but also for chain restaurants.

                I went to a place called Your Place that was ok, but the menu was basically typical of a chain.
