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:)

        Reading Terminal Market.

        Get the shoo fly pie at the Dutch Eating Place. Best I've ever had.

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

                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.
