“A spring & summer favorite”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

We love to go to Boehringer's for a great old fashion drive in meal. The food is good - simple old-time burgers and hot dogs, and the ice cream and shakes are well worth the calorie splurge. The picnic tables along the stream make for a great setting to enjoy a bite. Out dog loves coming with us as well - she enjoys people watching from the car...and getting her share of the snacks!

Highly recommended - just don't come right at noon on a sunny weekend or you will most certainly face a line out the door! It's worth the wait, but off hours are even better!

“A regular eating place for us!”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

This is a country kitchen nestled aside a babbling brook with the quaint village of Adamstown as the backdrop. Ducks swim in the creek year-round that just love diving for french fries that occasionally fall on the ground around the numerous picnic tables under 100-foot-plus shade trees. This is one of the oldest family-operated roadside eateries with a family recipe barbeque to die for!

“Regulars wait all year for the Boehringer's season to begin!”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

It's certainly not fine dining, but it's the BEST of its kind in the county! Burgers? Yep! Hot dogs? Yep! French fries? Yep! Beef Barbecue? Yep! Hand-dipped, homemade ice cream? Heck yeah!!! Open approximately from Memorial Day to Labor Day and all of us fans try to get here as often as we can during the season to eat as much and as often as we can, while sitting at the ancient picnic benches watching the ducks floating by in the creek. What a wonderful way to spend a sunny day in Adamstown!

“Old fashioned, tasty fast food”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

This place is only open seasonally. Their ice cream is homemade and is delicious. They also serve hot sandwiches, burgers and fries. There are outdoor picnic tables for seating, but no indoor seating. There is a small creek behind and it is fun to watch the ducks while eating. It's a great place to take children.

“Great local spot!”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Boehringer's is an awesome place that is open seasonally. The food and service are always great.

They only accept cash, and you better read the signs because if you don't step up to order, you'll never get to eat.
