I've traveling this route twice a month for the past two year. For the last six month or so I've been consistently going to Passage to India and Herby's Mexican in Harrisburg. They're both excellent but I've worked through the menus of both places pretty well and I'm ready for something new. I'll drive up to a half hour or so off of the turnpike and it doesn't matter which exit I get off at. I can use both lunch and dinner time suggestions as I never leave for Lancaster at the same time on any of my trips out. I'll be a solo diner just dressed in jeans and a T shirt. I'd like to keep it under $30, without alcohol. I like all kinds of food. I'll take anything from roadside BBQ to something somewhat upscale like Passage to India. It was from this board that I found both Passage to India and Herby's, so I'm hoping to find some more great places.
Thanks for the help!
