The Penguin Hotel, is set in a small-town historic building converted into a small but hip restaurant/pub. The Penguin is open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner and drinks.
This is not necessarily the best place to go if you’re on a diet – not because you don’t have any healthy options, they do have a couple delicious sounding salads that you can top with chicken or salmon that would be perfectly healthy – but seriously, once you see this burger menu, any idea of eating low fat or low cal. will go FLYING out the window!! The Penguin Hotel’s burgers are all made on-sight and are 8oz of juicy perfection. Then there is this crazy-wide variety of choices for toppings – everything from the usual bacon & blue cheese or mushroom & swiss, to a “sticky burger” that has – get this – peanut butter – on it!! If anyone who reads this actually TRIES that one, please post a review, I don’t have the guts.
They do have a full menu with delicious appetizers, soups, sandwiches and dinner platters – just in case you can’t find a burger that ‘speaks to you’. The hand-cut fries are delicious and the beer battered onion rings are even better! They have a great selection of beers on tap, including a few local craft brews, plus they have big list of ‘out there’ martinis if that’s your pleasure.
This is very much a “locals place” because it’s completely off the beaten track for tourists in Lancaster County. My biggest fear is that the word gets out about this place and I have to start making reservations to eat there – at least they DO take reservations though!
