So many time have I read "eat at Dutch Eatting Place at RTM" So many. Yesterday my teen and I went to RTM for lunch. I had no idea where to go. we wandered around and the teen decided that a tuna sandwhich at The Dutch Eatting Place was the best choice. we each got one - myine on toast with chips, the teen on white with fries. I had a diet coke, the teen a lemonaide. OMG the food was FABULOUS! RIPE, deep red and tastey fresh Lancaster Co grown tomatoes on mine - delicious fries and the lemonaide TO DIE FOR! The teen later said it was a "damn good meal" NO place had ever gottwn such high praise:) Thanks all for making me say YES to this place:)

            My mouth is watering just thinking about that shoo fly pie.

                I could seriously hoover a piece right now. Maybe we can make one on vacay.

              2. re: invinotheresverde

                Is it the "wet bottom" variety of shoo fly pie? The difference between wet and dry bottom is the amount of goo. The dry bottom has 1/4 of an inch and the wet bottom has 1/2 or more goo.

                  I don't recall. It was taken to go, so it was kind of mashed in a cup. Heavenly.
