Stopped for lunch. Ordered three hot sandwiches and a hot dog. It took almost an hour before they arrived. We found everything we ordered to be quite good when we finally got it. Try the truffle fries - they were great.

Don’t know, you would need to check their hours! Maple leaf diner in rt 100 in Londonderry is good option or Bobs Diner in Rt 100 in Manchester. Again, check hours due to holiday. Small businesses that may or may not be open.
