Stopped by on way to Worlds End State Park got to meet Big Mike and he and all there where the best people. One smell of the food and we where headed to dining area for cheesesteaks and burgers. The food was excellent but the people made the place even better. I will be stopping every trip by there.

My family and I visit the Forksville are several times a year and this is the place to go. The cheesesteaks are top notch as well as their Italian subs. I highly recommend a pit stop here if you're in the area.

Nice old rustic atmosphere. Food was really good and service not bad. Thought a little overpriced. All in all though; would eat here again if in the area.
