sandwiches:lancaster county pennsylvania
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.
