Little Sandy's Truck Stop & Restaurant in Hancock
Joe from ESSEX on 08/25/2020 09:45 AM:
We always stop there on the way to or from our camping trip to Rocky Gap state park. They have a great hot Turkey and mashed potatoes Platters. So my wife and I discussed if we are going to eat it there or do take out with the virus going on and being a truck stop with drivers from all over the country stopping there. God bless our truckers. Anyway I told her if the waitress has a mask on then we will eat there because I don't want her breathing on my food. If not we will get it to go in a closable container by the cook. Anyway we walk in and I sit at a table because I see the waitress with a mask hanging around her neck and being slow I figure she will pull it up when she takes our orders. My wife goes to the bathroom and the waitress brings menus and ask what we want to drink and left the mask hand around her neck.I told her to wait for my wife to come back. So I get up to go back to the bathroom and tell her to get it to go because the waitress is not putting her mask on. So while I was going to the bathroom the waitress gets a little attitude with my wife because I sat at a table and now we want it to go. Sad because the food is good. At least that Platter is good. Not sure about the rest. But I can't get the virus because of my COPD will kill me. Sorry for a bad review but warning other customers.

I feel your pain. I was also just in hancock and had to do laundry, and get supplies. The pharmacy, of all places was not enforcing masking, nor was the dollar store or the laundry. It is like that everywhere, especially in these small towns all along the GAP and C&O. Ohiopyle, Connelsville also had serious making and social distancing problems. It is such a sad shame that these businesses continue to suffer at their own unwillingness to do a simple and even patriotic thing to protect us all.

In Connellsville, the little grocery in town had multiple employees and customers not masking and the same with the Sheets there. AT Whites Ferry, I walked in to get cold drinks and hot grilled sandwiches for me and my kids and walked right back out because the employees were not masking. I truly want these businesses to survive. But I value my own survival more than I value the services they offer. What a shame.

WKR from Brunswick, MD on 08/25/2020 09:32 PM:
I'm surprised you had the issue in whites ferry. That's full on DC area and not an out of the way location. Of course, the virus doesn't care if it's out of the way or not but I would expect more of the city and suburban folks to not want to do business where they're not wearing masks.

I have had many good meals at this restaurant. However, they need to take a serious look at some of their serving staff. If you come during the overnight and ask the waitress (Barb) for some fresh coffee, forget it. As a matter of fact, forget about any friendly hellos.

This morning I was in at 5:00 A.M. and the waitress had some dismal show on about murder. I asked if she could put the news on or the weather channel. (She ignored me.) I asked her at least 5 times, and she ignored me. She even went into the kitchen for five minutes with the show still blasting mayhem. Finally, I said something when I went to pay my bill and she started yelling, "You shouldn't complain so much." I said that I think the TV's should be for the customers. I then tipped the cook and left.

That place is very terrible food and service. The Place should be condemned as its really nasty and the owners obviously don't put any money in the place. The employees are bottom of the barrel and uneducated. The place should be demolished.

I've always found the food and staff at Weaver's Restaurant in Hancock to be quite good although I doubt they are open during the night. The pies are very good.

Cenzo from Hatfield PA on 03/15/2019 11:13 PM:
Wow. Now I'm curious to go see.

Cenzo from Hatfield PA on 03/16/2019 09:38 AM:
Weavers is great.

John from Pittsburgh on 03/16/2019 11:59 AM:
We ate dinner at Buddy Lou’s last trip there. I was very impressed with the food and service. I would 100% go there again.

I’ve eaten at Weaver’s also and have enjoyed it.

Also, if you need something quick, Sheetz Is a good stop. Yes it’s a convenience store but not like others. They have a real kitchen with a ton of things you can order. Touch screen ordering, pay for all of your stuff, and then wait for your order to be called. You can eat inside or take it with you. Sometimes I grab breakfast sandwiches here when we’re pressed for time or grad a sub to take to camp or hotel room.

On New Years day I stopped in for breakfast. I ordered waffles and bacon. When the waitress brought my order and placed it on the table, she asded if it was too dark. It was, in fact the waffle was burnt, and the bacon dark. I said yes it was too dark. Without saying a word, she returned it to the kitchen. About 3 to 5 minutes later, the waitress returned with the order and placed it on the tabel and walked away. The waffle again, appeared dark and when I turned it over, I found that it was burnt. It appeared to be the same waffle. I again told the waitress that it was too dark. She returned to the kitchen, at which time I heard the cook yelling. I motioned to another waitress to have the order canceled because I could hear the cook yelling. A few minutes later, my waitress walked by my table and said to me, "You can pay for your coffee at the register." She did not say she was sorry for the burnt food, have a good day, nothing. I paid for the coffee and left.
I will not return, nor recommend your restaurant to my many friend and family that visit.

Randy on 01/09/2013 03:39 PM:
Appreciate the head's up. Thanks for the post.

Carla on 04/17/2014 04:24 PM:
Yes I totally agree with the person who got the waffles, In the past I have to ask for silverware, refill on drinks, napkins, these people get into their little groups and gossip, I have seen this many times.

Roy from Middletown on 04/18/2014 10:01 AM:
The restaurant should apply for federal money so they can continue this poor service indefinitely, sorta like Amtrak

Sorry, couldn't help myself

Rick Hancock from Grafton, Va. on 04/19/2014 04:30 PM:
For a good meal you never need to venture further than Weaver's. Good food, fair prices. Someone mentioned elsewhere in the forums that their serving breakfast several mornings a week. We always stop in for lunch or supper. The waitresses are very friendly and the locals eat there!

Baryy O on 04/23/2014 03:11 PM:
When I travelled in the Northeast Corridor I used Amtrak quite a bit. I always found them to be professional, courteous and on time.
Not sure why Roy felt the need to drag politics into a discussuon about a restaurant. Maybe they didn't serve Tea. :)

Roy from Middletown, OH on 04/27/2014 01:46 PM:
Sometimes a joke is a joke, however poor. Sorry Frank Burns that you took it so seriously.

Jim on 04/29/2014 01:23 PM:
I've used Amtrak when I travelled and have never had any issues. What's with the poor service comment? Did you ever use Amtrak, Roy, or are you just spouting Tea bag rhetoric?

Mark on 04/29/2014 01:25 PM:
Roy, please take your politics elsewhere. This website is about the C&O Canal.

Patti on 04/29/2014 01:28 PM:
I agree. Roy, if you don't have anything positive to contribute to a discussion about the C&O Canal, then take it elsewhere.

Anonymous on 05/15/2014 11:08 AM:
Does"take your politics elsewhere" apply to Jim as well?

K E from Middletown, MD on 05/18/2014 06:29 PM:
I agree with the Weavers recommendation. The food and service are great.

As for Amtrak, no thanks. The bathrooms are filthier than your worst port a pot at the end if a fair day.

John from Owings on 05/21/2014 11:31 AM:
I too have been treated well on Amtrak, and Roy I agree sometimes a joke is a joke, the rest of you need to get a life and leave Roy alone he is entitled to same rights under the 1st Amendment as the PC police atleast for today

Roy from Middletown, OH on 05/24/2014 06:45 PM:
If one is narrow minded enough to limit the definition of service to how one is treated personally, then maybe my post was out of line. The employees aboard my train were great. However, I'm able to think beyond self and define service in a broader scope.
Thus, Amtrak unnecessarily limits choices to the customer, is federally funded (that makes the statement political? please don't show yourself so poor a thinker)and may therefore be considered in this instance to offer poor service. In private sector businesses similarly offering poor service may go out of business, bringing about my poor attempt at public humor in relating the one instance to the other.
I'll not choose to eat at Little Sandy's restaurant either BTW...pretty risky Frank. Hope you enjoy. And all related to the trail and one's ability to enjoy and how one may utilize the same, thus appropriate to the board.

Brett on 05/29/2014 03:23 PM:
John Owings and Roy from Middletown drop it. 1st Amendment? Come on, lighten up.
It's Summer and vacation Season. Keep the discussions about the Trail. Plenty to discuss.

Paul from Quincy, IL on 06/01/2014 07:01 PM:
"John Owings and Roy from Middletown drop it. 1st Amendment? Come on, lighten up."

What does the 1st amendment have to do with it. Roy exercised it and other disagreed with what he said. My take is that Roy hasn't said anything to indicate he actually knows anything about Amtrak, rather is only echoing what he has heard. If he would like to learn about Amtrak I suggest he go to

Lighten up Paul. Stop trying to pick fights on this forum. A-Hole!

Used to go there all the time with friends to hang out and eat dinner. Was there on 4/17/14. Well after it changed hands and let me tell ya it didn't change for the better. It got worse! Dirty tables, unprofessional waitresses. The salad bar was missing alot of veggies. It used to be the only place to get a decent salad. It is no longer included in the price of dinner. The waitresses were sitting at tables talking instead if waiting on diners. Had to ask multiple times to get a cup of coffee. No they were not busy. It was 8 pm on a Thursday. I won't be going back.

I used to go there daily, then it dropped to a couple times a month.. Since this restaurant was bought by another company; the food seems to be 2nd or 3rd class now, the staff,aren't as friendly as they once were. I won't be going there, for a while.
