although it may seem sacreligious to post atopic about food in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country that does not relate to Pennsylvania Dutch cooking,the fact is that typical PennsylvaniaDutch meals,though delicious are not exactly light fare.Therefore a visitor to Lancaster County who plans to have dinner at Peoples Restaurant or The Akron restaurant (both reviewed by Roadfood) might want a change of pace for lunch. Hence this post.
Isaac's is a chain of central Pennsylvania sandwich restaurants with 6 in lancaster county alone. The decor is contemporay (except for the Strasburg restaurant which has a railroad motif). The sandwiches are named after birds and there are dozens of options, including many vegetarian selections(which are named after plants).The softpretzel sandwiches- with a pretzel substituted for bread- are particularly good.Two differant homemade soups are available each day, and are invariably excellant. Isaacs also has an extensive children's menu.

    Thanks for this information Brooksquarry, as I am heading to the Strasburg railroad with my kids for the Thomas the Tank Engine day, and was looking for a child friendly restaurant

      Thanks for the suggestion brookquarry. Isaac's is a pleasant restaurant -- sandwiches are tasty, and they are great with kids. It was, however, our second choice, as I was hoping to make it in time to the Red Caboose restaurant. This restaurant is part of a "motel" that consists of about 30 or so cabooses all furnished as motel rooms.

      We are thinking of heading back to eat/sleep there -- any views or experiences on the Red Caboose welcome ....
