Lancaster Co.

We are doing an unexpected day trip to Lancaster Co. tomorrow. Despite living in Philly for the past 6 years, I've only been out there once and it was a side trip on the way back from a conference in Harrisburg. What are some recommendations for GREAT food in the Amish Country? Both restaurants and small snacks are welcome!

Right now the agenda is just Lancaster Central Market and then driving back through Intercourse, Bird-in-Hand, etc. and stopping at roadside spots...

  1. You might post this on the PA board..

    1. The Amish/ Pennsylvania German Food is basically simple and plain my definition and of course in season farm fresh. When in the area although infrequently, I enjoy the food and feel of the Stockyards Inn. I would hardly say it is PA Dutch but good none the less. You should be able to get some guidance at the Central Market.
