Here's a place I've never seen recommended in a York writeup.

 

It's a bit of a splurge -- it's not a typical beer 'n' wings kind of setup -- but if you're traveling with your spouse and you'd like to give her an extra special treat for putting up with 28 hours of your trains over 3 days, there's the Accomac Inn at 6330 South River Drive, York, PA.  It's about 15 miles from the fairgrounds, right on the Susquehanna river.

 

The menu can be seen here so you know what you're in for.  It'll put a dent in your wallet, but among other things, the venison is killer.

 

Again, it's a splurge, but sometimes a splurge is a good thing.

P.S. For nights that you feel like getting pizza delivered to your hotel room, I'm partial to the Mamma's Pizza (i.e., the location on George St).  Good NY-style crust.  Apart from that, just read this forum and go to whatever place people are meeting for a burger and a beer.

I will second that. The Accomac is great food and Nice setting.

A few places come to mind.... Mission bar-b-que is fantastic if you like pork, beef, brisket, or sausage. They have 12 different sauces ranging from very sweet to fire in the hole. In addition the sides are tasty and the cornbread moist. It's located on route 30 just next to chick fila. Also while working I order Italian from Latucas daily. They actually deliver to the UTZ arena(orange hall). Awesome meatball subs and a speciality pizza called the Vincenzo which is tremendous. These are a few of my favorites

Best place to eat in york? There is no best place as far as I know and I've been going since 1985. There are many decent places to eat around York, go to the one that you like or have been to before. They are mostly chain restaurants. 

 

 Your not going to york for the food but for the train meet. So have fun and enjoy it.

This trip is a special trip for me so I always treat myself to 1 fantastic meal while I'm there.  So, I always go to Texas Roadhouse for  filet mignon.  I have NEVER had a bad steak there.  Knock on wood.  And service has always been great.  Plus, I think the Texas Roadhouse in York is the best one anywhere.  And, I've been to a lot of 'em.

NOT Ruby Tuesdays! Worst service and food Ive ever experienced.

Isn't this where the DCS forum group meets on Thursday?  The companionship out weighs the food.

 

Arguably the best Italien in York - Bel Paese Italian Ristorante, 1202 Memory Lane Plaza in East York. One of the best "strip mall Italien" restaurants I've ever encountered!

Better than that place in downtown Sanford?

It's the OGR meeting, not DCS. I just get the salad bar.

There is a good seafood place between York and Hanover, Called Rt 30 Seafood There is also a German place in Abbotstown that looks good, but never been there

I agree too main chain restaurants in York.

Not quite true.  I've had a [very] few outstanding Italian meals between the longitude of Paterson and the Pacific Coast, plus I've had lousy pseudo-Italian food east of Paterson.

It all depends on how many vowels your last name has to be able to call Italian food outstanding.  I never said everything east of Paterson is good.  There are still Olive gardens in that geography.  LOL

Last year was pretty bad. Somehow my order was the only one that did not make it to the kitchen (joke) and though I ordered the filet, I got sirloin.  When I complained, was told "oh, they're the same price anyway."     

 

Hoping this year is a little better.  

I ate at that German place west on 30 once, years ago, and was underwhelmed.

It can vary wildly at the same place, two nights in a row...and did a few years

ago when that place just across Arsenal from the Round The Clock first opened.

Really good first night...NOT the second night, have not been back.  Also had

a lousy meal and service east on 30 in that shopping center that is north and

east of 30 and Memory Lane.  Sorry I can't pull up the names. I certainly would like to hear about some others, even, if (a little) pricey.....I don't have to go far here to find the usual franchise joints.  Who has a daily brunch during the week?  Old Country

Buffet does there on Sat., but I want to be on the grounds then, usually, and they

aren't smart enough to take care of Thurs. and Fri. opportunity.  I just have ice cream

on the grounds, eating a bigger breakfast and dinner, and spend my time walking (the ice cream off?)

And they have outstanding cheesesteaks!  Rivals any I've had in the Philly area.  It's a tradition for my wife and I to go there after the halls close on Saturday.  Thanks to Vince's referral several years ago!

 

They're on Market Street down the street from the Fairground's Market St. exit.

When I first spent time in SE Pa. beginning in 1970, I immediately encountered different regional tastes in dining.  The now international fast food chain that I lived off of with my chicken feed budget in school in the midwest, could not be found, nor could any others.  That has changed, of course, beginning about that time.  I extended those trips then to explore New England, and was challenged to find familiar menu items, even for breakfast.  Now there is a Cracker Barrel outside Sturbridge, which I understood was their farthest east restaurant.  Of course, some don't like this

homogenation of dining across America, but when you travel, you sometimes want

comfort food, and don't want to have to guess when reading a menu.  Other times,

I'd like to try a different place.

Hi DAVE,
  In other words, as YOGI would have said,
"Nobody goes there anymore because it's too crowded."

Like Ben, I am one who has yet to find a really good restaurant in York. Sure, lots of mom and pops where can find a good breakfast but lunch is iffy and dinner, well, you can fill up but no place that leaves a positive memorable impression.

When we travel we carry a copy of "Roadfood" by the Sterns. I have found quite a few memorable spots that are usually off the beaten path and you wouldn't likely find without this guide. They also have a website which besides input from the Sterns, others have contributed too. Checking the website for York, PA the closest place listed is actually 21 miles away. Doesn't say much for York itself.

 

Let me add one thing regarding Latucca's. Subs are OK, good tip Brian about the cheese steaks but if you plan to get lunch there call your order in. We have gone there, placed our order, and waited over an hour to get served while others come in, pick up their order and walked out. Service can leave a lot to be desired.
