Road Kill Café Serves Up
Home-Style Cooking

I can’t believe I am doing this. I kept thinking to myself, this has to be some sort of joke. But yet here I was driving a twisting, turning Green Ridge Road going to, of all places, the Road Kill Cafe.

Surrounded by the forest and farms of Southern Pennsylvania, I asked myself who would open a restaurant way out here? This can’t be for real, I rationalized. I’m turning around right ahead at that gas station sign! No more, I’ve had enough... looking for this place... I grumbled. No sooner did I pull into the gas station parking lot when I saw the wooden sign hanging on its block building Road Kill Cafe! I found it, and I wasn’t the only one- the parking lot was full.

I made my way into the entrance where I found a grocery store with everything from hardware to sporting goods. But my nose and stomach quickly reminded me the real reason I came here, to eat. Home cooking is a way of life at the Road Kill and I can attest to the fact that if you enjoy good home-style food such as hot roast beef sandwiches, BBQ ribs, hearty soup, and homemade pies, look no further. The dining room “picnic” tables and benches are set up family style and the meal is served on paper plates. But the food is good and you get plenty of it.

Barbara Snider, is both the owner and chief cook. She started serving meals to locals and sportsmen alike and the cafe took on a life of its own. The Road Kill Cafe received its name when a few of the regular customers placed a sign on the roof for fun. It stuck. Now patrons can browse the selection of humorous T-shirts and other souvenirs featuring the phrase “You Kill It, We Grill It.” Many folks have discovered the Road Kill including NBC newsman, Tom Brokaw.

The Road Kill Cafe is located near Artemas, PA, about 6 miles off Interstate 68 (exits 68, 64, or 62.) Follow scenic Route 40 to the top of Green Ridge Mountain then turn onto Green Ridge Road. When you see signs that say Artemas and Inglesmith, follow Ingelsmith. About 1 mile to the left is the Cafe. For more information call the Road Kill Cafe at (814) 784-3257.
