Brothers Family Dining – Mechanicsburg

On Tuesday March 30, 2010 we decided to try Brothers Family Dining (locally known as the Brothers Restaurant) at 705 Gettysburg Pike in Mechanicsburg. We had both been here before, but it had been quite a while, so we were anxious to find out how breakfast was doing at this well known location. Brothers is a nice looking place, both inside and out, but the first indicator was that there weren’t many cars in the parking lot. The crowd was pretty sparse inside, a few business folks, a table of 5 guys that may have been a landscaping crew, and a couple of retired folks. The place was clean and neat and our waitress came right over. We ordered our usual breakfast, 2 eggs, home fries, sausage links and toast. The meal was served to us in less than 10 minutes, probably closer to 7 minutes, so it was pretty quick. The eggs were small, but nicely cooked. The home fries were really bland and needed a lot of salt and pepper to try to make them any where near decent. The sausage links were like miniature versions of the real thing and they were either cooked to death or they were some kind of boxed, microwave links. Either way, we weren’t all that impressed. The waitress was nice and attentive, probably the best part of our visit. Overall, this place wasn’t as good as it used to be.
