PA Dutch-style eating in Pennsylvania
Amish Country is not the place to go if you’re on a diet. But if you’re looking for savory, filling, “homestyle” meals, Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch-style restaurants may be just the ticket. The Lancaster County area is full of dining choices for the hungry, though PA Dutch and Amish-themed eateries can be found elsewhere in the state, including Central PA and the Philadelphia area.
