After the Run: Local Favorites

Oakhurst Grille & Event Center Make sure to have the Ham Pot Pie! Delicious! The cole slaw is spectacular...
2409 Glades Pike, Somerset PA — (814) 443-2897
Slopeside Table: ask for by the window but be careful, during the day it gets hot. Breakfast: the omelet station is delicious. Italien night: pasta station is the best
The Grille at Sporting Clays Greta food all around and a solid beer selection to boot.
The Country Pie Shoppe Great cinnamon buns
Hoss's Family Steak and Sea I love Hoss's. Steaks are decent & free salad bar with your steak means you eat the salad bar items and take the steak home for a midnight snack :-)
Arby's Service needs to be a little faster.
109 Lewis Drive, Somerset PA — (814) 443-1181
Eat'n Park Surprised to find a celiac free menu! Pretty exciting to get a simple sandwich at a diner style eatery!
926 N Center Ave, Somerset PA — (814) 443-4579
Summit Diner Fried pickles are great. Tastes like they use fried chicken batter- nice and peppery.

Pine Grill Very good food. Try the Buffalo Chicken Wrap.

Rey Azteca Mexican Restaurant It's pretty good. I'm a connoisseur of Mexican food and to be really authentic you need to serve Licuados and Flautas as an appetizer. Flautas are only available in a combo meal. No Licuados at all :(
