Soda Jerk Diner (Hummelstown, PA)

Soda Jerk Diner (Hummelstown, PA)

Recently, I was driving through Hummelstown. I haven’t been out in the area in years (it’s right near Hershey Park). I was driving through the mid-morning, and while I wasn’t starving, I was hungry, so I decided to stop.

The Soda Jerk Diner is located in a small strip mall. When I arrived mid-morning, I got the last parking spot in the lot.

Atmosphere: A
The Soda Jerk Diner stands out in the strip mall. It’s a large shiny, chrome restaurant front.  When you walk in, you feel like you are in a blast from the past and walking into a diner. It’s everything you picture in a restaurant from the checkerboard floor, shiny tables, and jukeboxes. You couldn’t ask for a more picturesque diner if you tried.

The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and it was delicious. I have no complaints.

Food: B
I wasn’t sure what I was in the mood for. The Soda Jerk Diner has everything from breakfast specials, lunch, and dinner. Since I wasn’t starving, I decided to order the Greek salad with salmon. I also added a cup of spicy crab soup because it sounded good.

The spicy crab soup was a pleasant surprise. I like spicy food, and the spicier, the better. The soup had a nice kick but wasn’t overly powerful.

The salad was ok. It was by no means the best salad or best diner salad I’ve had. I could have used more greens as well as pita bread, grape leaves, or anchovies. I doubt I would order it again.

Overall Thoughts/Summary:
I liked the Soda Jerk Diner in Hummelstown. I would go back, but I would probably order something else.

  1. I never went to Hershey Park until about four years ago. My whole childhood came and went without a single visit, even though I lived in Maryland the whole time. What can I say? I loved it! There was so much more there for a grown-up to do than, say, in Busch Gardens or Kings Dominion. The chocolate world tour was really fun, and I even liked the HUGE Hershey-themed gift shop near the entrance.
