Stop in for a hot dog or hamburger. But more importantly watch the trains. Just a really cute place to grab a quick bite to eat and create memories.

My husband used to eat here years ago with his dad. There is a lot of fascinating history in this place, including walls of photos and a letter from their first employee to his mother from basic training (getting ready to be shipped out to fight WW2). The special franks and onion rings are fantastic. Burgers are just ok. They... More

My hubby has been going here since he was little, so we have been taking our own kids since they were born. They love going to see the trains while enjoying dinner! Every year I get my hubby a gift certificate for Christmas, can't beat their Christmas Eve deal!

This place is definitely worth a stop. If you like hotdogs this is the best place around. They do not take credit cards cash only. The restaurant has been around since 1940 it was part of the farm still located there. I just like a good hot dog with sauerkraut.

To start these dogs are more of a German knock wurst, only about 4 inches long and very fat, they are served on a little soft dinner roll. I got mine with chili and cheese sauce, the chili is a meaty tomato chili with beans, very different from what I'm used to but still good. Didn't have room for their... More

eh....it had good reviews, and there wasn't much else in the area, so I stopped by. First, it was packed, so there wasn't much parking. Inside, it was a bit chaotic, with people who already ordered just standing in the "lobby" blocking everything up. I ordered a chili cheese dog and some onion rings. The food actually came out pretty... More

Been enjoy Jimmy John's sandwiches since the 60's, when the original "Jimmy" & his wife worked the flat top grill. In his 90's he sold the hotdog stand to a long-term emp. named Roger who cooks all day with his own son now. The breakfast sandwiches are just great, served anytime. The hotdogs come with or without a natural casing... More

I don't get it, and I never did. I've tried to like these hot dogs. I've really tried. I've dressed them up every way I can. But I just think they're the worst. It's amazing because so many have raved about them. The problem is this: They're almost impossible to chew. The skin is so tough, you almost have to... More

Having frequented this place for nearly two decades, they continue to serve up quality food at reasonable prices in a great old-fashioned family atmosphere -- and of course, the model trains!

Whenever we visit PA, we MUST visit Jimmy Johns! I am a bit of a fitness nut and typically eat a healthy diet--mostly veggies and salads--but not when I visit Jimmy's. The food here is out of this world--their hot dogs are the best ever. We always buy a 5 lb box to take back with us to MA. I... More
