I have a friend who told me about Combine Brothers years ago and I had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder…..I may head up there and try it out soon.
Okay, while not really roadfood, I will suggest a stop at the Combine Brothers restaurant. Less than 2 miles north off I-80 at the West Middlesex/Hermitage exit. Some of the most delicious and bountiful Italian food dishes to be had anywhere within 100 miles. And much easier to find than Quaker Steak and Lube. There is also a wonderful diner at that same exit in West Middlesex, PA., only travel south about 1000 yards. Very good food at very reasonable prices.
I ate at Quaker Steak in Sharon in November 2007. Hadn’t been there for a couple of years so I was hoping it was still good. The wings were excellent as usual but I noticed the prices on the wings are outrageous now. Dinner and drinks for 4 cost almost $80.00 with tip.
We all had burgers and fries and added a small bucket of wings as an appetizer. I remember going there a few years back and buying three large buckets of wings for like $50.00.
All in all, The check kind of ruined the experience for me other than I got to see some old friends and have a good visit.
I agree with MetroplexJim’s suggestion. I am no fan of the Quaker Steak & Lube chain, but the original location in Sharon is still very good.
I have looked for good Roadfood in this area before and have not had much luck…..
It looks like my current plan is to stop in Sharon at QS&L, jump back on the road, drive to Williamsport and turn in for the night. Many thanks for the recommendation.
The original location of Quaker Steak & Lube is in Sharon, PA (just over the OH-PA border). Don’t miss it if you like Buffalo Wings.
Be warned that I-80 goes almost 400 miles through largely unpopulated areas of PA. There are truck-stops and franchised fast-food, but roadfood will require lengthy side trips.
Enjoy the City.
I know the route from Chicago to Philidelphia like the back of my hand, but this coming Monday, I’m headed to NYC and am unfamiliar with the route east of Youngstown.
Leaving Chicago around noon, I should hit Cleveland about 7pm EST. I’d love to stop for the evening soon after that. Any recs for good road food in that part of Eastern OH/Western PA?
I love casual, ethnic and divey places, and nobody know’s ’em like the folks here.
I-80 East of Cleveland?
