Is there any "really good" food at Hershey?

Recommended Posts

That does clear it up for me. :) I was looking at the original post and it listed an Italian place, Fenicci's, at the top of the post and the sushi place, Sakura Do, at the bottom. Sorry Steve, I thought you had put those two together. :o I didn't realize, because I don't live there, that Sakura Do's has both. Sounds like a place worth trying since we will be there Sunday through Sunday.

We stay in lebanon and our diner went out of business a few years ago, so we make breakfast at our spot on the field, we have a dentist as a breakfast chef, and she always feeds us well! I do steaks every Friday at lunchtime, and usually make some mushroom sauce to go with the steaks. In the evenings we love the Kum-Esse diner in Meyerstown, well worth the drive, they make many varities of pies, and a personal favorite, apricot.

We are constantly delighted by the "regional accent" that the diner waitresses all have (and most of the locals) where the pitch of their voice goes up on the second to last word in a sentence i.e. "Are you guys here for the car show".

Mrs. T's perogies hot from the fryer. Yum, Yum.

On Thursday's we do lunch in the Hershey Cafe. Hot fudge sundaes with whipped cream and a cherry on top. **drool**

Sherrie's Crab Cakes are the other treat we look forward to. But if you can't eat shellfish then those of course are out.

The Hershey Cafe is no longer. It's some Italian restaurant, now... I live less than 5 minutes from it :P

And on another note, Sakurado is Italian/Sushi. My family eats there every once in a while... The sushi is great, but I don't think we've ever tried anything from the Italian part of the menu...

I might not have put the correct name. Where I was talking about is the food court area of Hershey World. Pleeease don't tell me they turned that into an Italian eatery. :eek: I would never be able to get Bill back to Hershey if he can't have his ice cream sundae lunch one day. :o

Ahh, no, the one I was referring to was an actual restaurant :P I haven't been to Chocolate World in ages, but I'm pretty sure you're still good on that :)

Last week the Durant Motors Automobile Club had their Annual meet in Lancaster. On Saturday the group went to the AACA Museum for a tour and then off to the Soda Jerk Diner for lunch. We did not call ahead of time and just showed up with about 40 of us. They were very gracious to fit us all in, the service was excellent and quick and the food was great. I recommend them highly.

How do you fit eating into the day when there's never enough time to see all the cars and talk to a few people? I carry things such as jerky in a back pack and stuff my jaws when I feel my sugar dropping. Then dinner in a restaurant after I leave the show and take time to give my tired legs a rest.

Been a few years, but I've been to the Soda Jerk in Hummelstown; if it's still like it was back then, classic '50s style diner, food was great, but again, been some time ago. Sounds like it's still the same, though.

Yes, beef jerky is always in my shoulder bag to gnaw on when I'm making the rounds at Hershey or Carlisle; another favorite are the assorted snack crackers like those peanut butter and cheddar cheese crackers; they come six to a package, and a box of them has eight packs. But, that's just to keep me going until I get to one of the vendors who happens to be in the right place at the right time.

I also stock up on some Hershey product while I'm there; glad they always have a tent close by to where you pick up the registration packets for the car show. I always pick up some Rollo's, which were a favorite of mine when I was a kid; always take something home for Mom and a couple other folks (as well as myself).

I know there's another place on West Chocolate Avenue that has an all-you-can-eat pizza/stromboli/Italian buffet Wednesday nights, kind of in the vicinity of Friendly's, and the Reese's building, but doggone it, can't remember the name. Lots of help I am, eh? Maybe someone can tell me which restaurant I'm thinking of.

It's called Your Place and is located on 322 directly across from the Hershey Medical Center. Just around the corner from The Friendly's and Reese's.

and.....another new restaurant opens today, Italian of course. The new one on Hockersville Rd is pretty good! Oh and for those who visited Sorrento's downtown, they are combined in one location on 322 in the Briarcrest Mall. A new Subway is opening there too and hopefully done by the fall meet.

Yes, that's it! Your Place is where we have gone the past several years on Wednesday evenings; all-you-can-eat is great when you're hungry from walking the fields all day, and as I recall, there are a couple of nice-looking sweeties there as well waiting to seat you...:rolleyes:

we go to the coco grill ( by wendys and mc ds on 39) for breakfast you can get eggs, toast and meat, hash brown potatos and coffee for under $5.00 bucks with tip and it is enough till dinner time. :):)

I was thinking that it was the Cocoa Diner. We found that place last year. The food is cheap and plenty of it.

Any 2013 updates on good food in Hershey? We like the Pizza at Jo Jo's in Hummelston. I have yet to find any good food in the field area. Any suggestions?

Countdown 12 days!!!

Ok, I posted elsewhere but here goes: The field..hey, it is junk food mostly although there is a tent in front of the Giant Center that has a more sit down fare. Sherrie's crab cakes are always a hit and there is some BBQ and pizza that seems to sell well.

In town, if you have an unlimited budget. Devon's is divine (seafood), Fenucci's is great, Dafnos another great Italian place, What If, Chocolate Avenue Grille, there is a new bbq place called Smoke, a great restaurant called the Harvest up at the Hotel Hershey, a new amazing sweet shop on Chocolate avenue near What If but I can't remember the name tonight (something to do with sweet). Oh, and Troeg's Brewery is real popular to eat and sample their beers and it is right on Hersheypark Drive

For Old Car Fan, Shop Rat, and others who might miss the long gone Hershey mud, I will once again have some genuine vintage Hershey mud for you to see at my space, CE76. As a sideline, , I'll also have Model A, XK 120 Jaguar, and mixed make parts, plus some tools and literature. (yeah, I know, it's a sneaky way to put in a plug in a thread about food....)

You'll be in PA Dutch country so you can always find a home style restaurant and get yourself some hog maw, pigs feet, pickled tongue, saurkraut and red beet eggs with shoo fly pie for desert. Now that's good eating!

Wondering if there are any places with similar fare to the old Funcks Restaurant?   We've been eating there for years and still seems good but it has definitely changed to more of a pub than the restaurant it was 10 years ago when the wife and I started attending again.
