Exploring White Clay Creek State Park

Recently I met up with well known and very fast runner Nick K for a lunch hike at White Clay Creek State Park. I’m actually amazed I haven’t been to White Clay Creek State Park in New Castle County, De because it’s just over an hour from my house and has plenty of beautiful trails to run and hike.

Rudy’s Family Restaurant (Harrington, DE)

On the way back to Virginia, I stopped at Rudy’s Family Restaurant in Harrington, De. I’ve wanted to stop there for years, but the timing never works out. It’s right off the road, so it’s an easy stop for anyone passing through.

Rudy's Family Restaurant (Harrington, DE)

Atmosphere: A
Rudy’s Family Restaurant is a lot bigger than it looks. Outside it’s a clean, modern building. Once you walk in the restaurant, it’s shiny, metallic, and every part of a diner that you would expect. There is even a kid’s party room if you want to host a party.

Coffee:  C
The coffee was ok, not great. There was nothing unique or unusual about it, but it wasn’t terrible either.

Food: B
Rudy’s Family Restaurant has everything a diner would have. There are plenty of breakfast options, lunch, and salad, as well as dinner specials. If you are passing through Harrington and need a spot that will please everyone, Rudy’s Family Restaurant is it.

I always appreciate a good greek appetizer and ordered the Greek Sampler. It was more of a Greek salad and as far as I could tell there was no difference in the Greek salad versus the Greek Sampler minus the Sampler had Gyro meat. It came with lettuce, tomato, feta cheese, gyro meat, pita bread, and grape leaves. The sampler was good but nothing unique or special. I would order it again.

For my entree, I decided to order the BLT, which was good.

It wasn’t “great,” but there was nothing terrible about it either. The french fries were crispy, which is how I like them.
