lunch in strasburg near the railroad

Could anyone give me a few places you would recommend to eat close to the strasburg railroad. My husband and I have a 2 1/2 year old girl and are looking for kid - friendly / family restaurants that are not going to be pricey - just fun with good food! Any suggestions would be great. Thank you.

I would highly recommend Isaac's Deli, a small chain in south-central PA. They have a restaurant in Strasburg. Delicious homemade soups and sandwiches, as well as great salads. The menu is based on a theme of "birds", with all of the selections named accordingly. Also, great selections for kids! See www.isaacsdeli.com. On rt. 896 north of Strasburg, you can't go wrong with Hersehy's Family Restaurant, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Another PA Dutch restaurant is Dienner's Country Restaurant. Continue north on rt. 896 to rt. 30. Turn right (east) about one mile to Soudersburg. Restaurant is on your left.

While they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets, oddly, they close at 6 pm most nights.

Their food is probably about as authentic (and cheap) as you will find. For some reason, the tourists don't seem to frequent this place--mostly locals. A fancier place is "The Dining Car" at the Strasburg Railroad. Meals are served in a turn-of-the-century wooden dining coach. A bit more upscale than those previously mentioned. Maybe not the place to take a young child?

When I saw the topic, I was going to recommend Isaac's as well. We try to visit on every trip. I second everything gumrat has said the food there is great and it is definately family friendly.

How about ON the Strasburg Railroad? The Dining Car Restuarant has the Lee Brenner Car that serves lunch and dinner on the move from Strasburg to Leaman Place Junction (Paradise).

The Red Caboose Motel and Restuarant one mile east of the Railroad.

Dienner's Restuarant on Route 30 E where Ronks ends and Gordonsville, PA begins. About four miles from the Railroad.
