This wonderfully old fashioned diner offers up great food, fast service, and a cool 50's vibe. I look forward to coming here often. You can't go wrong here. You'll almost always leave with a box of extra food as they give you great portions.

1950s diner with excellent ice cream and sundaes. Pies are homemade and delicious. Old music and juke boxes. Fun atmosphere. Great find.

Memories of the old fashioned sundaes we had as kids. Great ice cream and toppings. A true gem! Off the beaten track of Hershey but only 5 minutes away & well worth it. Best sundaes ever.

The food was awesome and service was great. We found it by accident. Cool 50's style diner. I had the turkey dinner and my husband had the lamb. Plan to go back next time we are in the area.

Couldn't find the place we were looking for, so opted to try The Soda Jerk. A typical diner experience with a typical diner menu. Food was average. Server was pleasant.

Ok. Sorry but I will rarely rate a diner higher than three. This one is pretty good but not great. Tried the oatmeal which was actually good and it's not easy to make good oatmeal. Had pancakes - better than IHOPs. Brother had omelette that he said was good. Reasonable prices.
