At 30, Victor’s fuses classic and modern cuisine

Whether with its traditional-but-modern menu, the beauty of its renovated church-turned-restaurant or its welcoming social scene, Victor’s Italian Restaurant grabs hold of hearts and taste buds. The Spring Garden Township landmark turned 30 this month.

Restaurant review: Tutoni’s

The York Dispatch restaurant reviewer Hanna dined sans Betty this week and invited a pair of substitute reviewers out to Tutoni’s, 108 N. George St., York (885-5169 or www.tutonis.com). Hanna: Betty went out of town this weekend, so I got her permission to get a substitute (I had to get her permission; Betty scares me).

The York Dispatch restaurant reviewers Hanna and Betty took a crew along to check out the new Quaker Steak & Lube, 1411 Kenneth Road, West Manchester Township (767-9464 or thelube.com/locations/pennsylvania/york).

From the wallpaper to the laminate floor used as...

Restaurant review: Corner Stable

Restaurant review: Corner Stable

The York Dispatch restaurant reviewers Betty and Hanna made two trips to the Corner Stable, 2575 S. Queen St. (741-4320 or cornerstables.com), for this week’s review. Take it away, ladies! Hanna: Betty and I normally eat together for these reviews, but because of her crazy schedule we had to dine separately this time. I missed her obnoxious commentary. Since I was sans Betty, I brought my boyfriend, Mark, with me. For an appetizer we had...
