“An Erie classic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Great atmosphere, excellent burgers and Smith's hot dogs. Wonderful shakes and ice cream. My favorite is the strawberry sundaes with whipped cream and pecans. Get something to eat then go walk the trails of Presque Isle.

“Great Summer Location with Poor Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Great summer location near the entrance to Presque Isle. However ever for this hot dog /hamburger type place, everything was rushed.....hot dogs were barely charcoal grilled and French fries greasy

“Great ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Love going here for ice cream after the beach. By far the best ice cream in Erie. Between the food, ice cream and the fun atmosphere, you won't find a better place. Love the milkshakes and sherbet!

“A must try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Sara's is a great place to eat if you like nostalgia. Great hamburger's and dogs amongst other things. Onion rings are awesome. Lots of self serve toppings and sauces for your burger's. They also have great ice cream...shakes are real good and the orange twist cones are my kids favorite. Don't be put off by a large crowd the service is incredible. They get your food very fast so there's hardly a wait. The only way to get the family off the beach is to tell them we are going to Sara's

“Cool Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Try the Chicago Beef sandwich and the vanilla orange twist cone. This place has a ton of seasonings and sauces for your fries...
