Texan told me | A friend, a somewhat recent emigrant from Texas, asked me to lunch some time ago. Wanted to take me to Dienner’s; told him we were not familiar with it.
Well, what a pleasing surprise it was. Since then we’ve returned four or five times since. Lancaster County, of course, has its share of smorgasbord-type or buffet dining places. And we’re blessed because we’ve got more than a few good ones, but Dienner’s supasses most of them. For flavorful comfort Pennsylvania Dutch foods. For really quality, smiling servers. For a manageable selection of food delights that are carefully and regularly replenished. The place is not huge and you just may have to wait for a table, but it’s worth is, we assure you. Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner buffets.
