This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to
Harrisburg Family House Restaurant, a family owned restaurant serving healthy home cooked favorites in Harrisburg, NC. This diner-meets-restaurant, offers a wide variety of choices including salads, steaks, BBQ, and seafood just to name a few, and I didn’t mention a full range of breakfast treats.
Dora here. Or desserts!! How could you leave off this goodie case, Ernie? lol. Parked right by the waiting area. Yeah, try walking by this without drooling. Those chocolate bears behind that red cake called my name.
Actually, we were headed to another restaurant in the area, but that was a bust because they were closed. With the help of our foodie apps like Yelp and Zomato we found this gem a short ride away. And when we walked in and spotted the fire truck photo, BONUS! Has to be good, right? lol
I chose the Boneless Pork Chops with turnip greens and a garden salad. This plate came with two large lean pork chops, oozing juice and with an amazing grilled flavor. The turnip greens were good and served with pepper sauce and the salad was a great start to the meal.
Dora here. Normally the Steak Tips dish is laden with onions, rice and gravy, but since hubby and I are trying to eat a little less carb heavy lately, I opted for just the steak and peppers, which were tender and well seasoned. If the green beans weren’t fresh, they were a fantastic replica, not mushy but not al dente, either. Overall, a happy dance in my mouth.
Considering the crowd, our food came out lightning quick. Great value and flavors, healthy options, and giant portions. If not for the close proximity of tables, the loud chatter, and the curtness of the server, we might have stretched our rating to five.
Which dessert would you choose from that case?
We rate this restaurant 4 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving great food.
