I-81 Between Harrisburg & Wilkes Barre Recs Please

Traveling up 81 this Sunday.. How about some good chow recs just off the Interstate? Pennsylvania Dutch food, good diners, fried chicken etc.

  1. Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot right off the interestate. A few miles down the road off exit 145 in Conyngham is a little place called the Brass Buckle. It bills itself as a Mexican restaurant (the name doesn't sound Mexican!) and has a lot of Mexican food, but has a pretty extensive menu. It's kind of fun and the food is good. If nothing else turns up here, you might give it a try! Someone might mention Top of the 80s which is in the same area. I remember my grandmother used to go there---would love to hear an update......
