NJ Turnpike-near the PA Turnpike exit

sgschef Sep 27, 2011 06:47 AM

Need to interview a candidate for a position-I am coming from Ridgefield, he is coming from King of Prussia area. Would like to find a restaurant for lunch somewhere near the PA Turnpike exit. Not fast food-but doesn't have to be high end. Thanks for your help!

    In addition to those mentioned, you might also consider Alstarz Sports Pub http://www.alstarzsportspub.com or Chickie's & Pete''s http://www.chickiesandpetes.com . Both are on Rt. 206/130 very near Exit 6 of the NJ Turnpike which is the connection to the PA Turnpike.

      You are not far from Mastoris Diner/Restaurant in Bordentown.

        I dunno - I like Mastoris, and I know some business folks meet there, but ... it's so touch and go if you don't know the menu well. Though I guess you can't miss with their dessert menu.

        I'd kinda say go into actual Bordentown and meet at Oliver or Under The Moon or Farnsworth House. There's also the Dublin Square Pub practically right across from Mastoris - I enjoy eating there quite a bit when I'm home.

        A truck stop?? Lol!

        In Levittown, Pa there is Gabrielle's, and in Fallsington, Pa there is Da Bar. This is not a prime restaurant area, but these 2 are acceptable for a lunch.

          Don't knock the so called "truck stop" its a lot more then that my friend.......the Iron Skillett is a great place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner, and their Buffetts are well worth the price...I've eaten there so many times and always a great meal & service also a fun place where you can eat out of IRON SKILLETS Too, They also have a full menu too........they are all over the country for a reason to serve hard working truckers and tourists on the road. BTW would be a nice casual place for a small business meeting right off the Turnpike exit also as the OP stated.

            I don't think a truck stop nor a diner is an appropriate venue for a business meeting. Just sayin'
