Restaurant review: Mason Dixon Family Restaurant

The York Dispatch restaurant reviewers Betty and Hanna swung south to visit the Mason Dixon Family Restaurant, 3 Old Farm Lane, Shrewsbury (717-235-6471 or www.facebook.com/MasonDixonFamilyRestaurant). Betty: I can sum up this review in two words: won’t return. Eating here is like taking a ride in Doc Brown’s DeLorean, only instead of landing in 1955, you land squarely in 1985. From the wallpaper to the laminate floor used as...

Restaurant Review: Bermudez

Restaurant Review: Bermudez

The York Dispatch restaurant reviewers Betty and Hanna took some pint-sized companions along to Bermudez, 29 E. Princess St. (843-0850 or www.facebook.com/BermudezCuisine), for this week’s review. Take it away, ladies! Hanna: Betty and I are always looking for new local places to try, and Bermudez has been open for only six months, so we had to check it out. We brought the kids for extra fun. The dining room, which holds about 15 people, has...

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...

Meatball showdown

Meatball showdown

“Can I mail you some frozen meatballs?” I don’t get phone calls like that every day, so naturally I said yes. A week later, 6 pounds of frozen meatballs arrived in my cubicle at work. That’s a lot of meatballs. I contemplated adding meatball-lifting to my workout routine (that’s a lie — my workout “routine” is entirely irregular), but then I figured the use of meatballs as dumbbells probably...

Restaurant review: Bistro 19

Restaurant review: Bistro 19

The York Dispatch restaurant reviewers Betty and Hanna headed to Bistro 19, 19 N. George St. (845-1900 or www.bistro19york.com) on a recent Central Market day, a little before the lunch hour. It was quiet. Take it away, ladies: Locals know Bistro as the place next to the courthouse that has a variety of beer and a menu that changes more often than Taylor Swift’s boyfriends. Don’t get too attached to a favorite menu item. Chances are...

Restaurant review: Coomb’s Tavern

Restaurant review: Coomb’s Tavern

After hours of arguing and Internet-scouring, The York Dispatch restaurant reviewers Betty and Hanna opted for a meal at Coomb’s Tavern, 475 Pennsylvania Ave. (854-8146 or www.facebook.com/CoombsTavern). Betty: Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. In York City, the place might very well be Coomb’s Tavern — as long as you don’t mind being totally confused about where to park. The restaurant’s...
