I love Jenny's Diner on RT. 30. I heard that there's a new owner in recent years. ... The Bird-In-Hand resteurant is nice, too.

My sister lives in Strasburg.

Just recently I went to the Willow Valley Buffet.  HORRIBLE! For around $18 bucks plus price of drink. Just awful!   Peel & Eat shrimp, hard to peel.  The only "amish" thing on the buffet was some apple butter.  No corn pudding, shoofly pie, nothing.  And their chicken and dumplings were tasteless, awful.  Went to reach for a banana from the salad area and it was as soft as pudding.   It seemed to be all set with food kids would like.  For $10 Golden Corral does soooooo much better.  Don't waste your time here.  Has gone down hill so much.   Only seafood was the shrimp and some nasty looking fish.  Go to Hersheys Farm or Millers Smorgasboard.

Shady Maple has a great breakfast buffet (or had one several years ago). VERY long lines. One place that (several years ago) was cheap but decent (although nowhere near as good as Diener's) was Yoder's. And they actually had horseradish for the roast beef.

I live near Yoders and Shady Maple and rarely go to either.They both offer afree meal on your birthday so I do try to go for that. Yoders is more popular with locals than the Shady Maple smorgasbord. However,Shady Maple Dutchette is on the lower level of the smorgasbord (next to their gigantic giftshop) and alot of locals gothere.

Ha....No this is a real find. A buffet RUN by Amish and Mennonites, COOKED by Amish and Menonnites, and for the most part even SERVED by Amish and Mennonites...The roast chicken and the pot roast are to die for,,,so many other selections to choose from...ham etc...it's a feast at a miniscule price...and shoefly pie, as great as it is...is way down on the list of cakes,pies and other desserts they offer.

So, What's the name of this great find????????

As the post says, he's talking about Dienners on Route 30 9which I agree is the best- though far from the biggest- buffet in the area)

Correct...as I said...it's definitely NOT the biggest, or the largest selection...but super food....my favorite side dish, the Amish lima beans...and yes the pot roast is great....since it's not emense like the touristy places...you might well wait a while for a seat...but more t5han worth it. We have Amish friends and they go there and some of their family works there.

As I've said in other posts, I've been going to Diener's since it was pretty much a luncheonette, when you just ordered from a menu (I always got the chicken and two sides). Kept on going after it went buffet, and expanded, and expanded.
 
And it's just as good as when you were ordering a la carte.

True Bartl,
   But much of what is on the al a carte menu is seen at the buffet...so the buffet is a great deal and a way to check out a variety of offerings...all so delicious....there is nothing phony or commercial about Dienner's...it's the real thing...a must for people who want to eat well!!!
