Pizza Hut: not one of my favorites
As the name implies, this chain specializes in Pizzas. Their favorites are Stuffed Crust Pizzas (thich crust is filled with cheese and sauce) and Pan Pizzas which are very thick and moist pizzas served in a hot pan. If you just want a regular pizza you can order it with 8 different meat toppings and a dozen fruit or vegetable ones (I have been told that pineapple pizza is a rage in college but have not tried it myself).
Want something other than pizza, then try their bread sticks and cheese sticks and crispy potato patties. Or get an order of mild or spicy or flaming hot buffalo wings (chicken bits that are breaded and dipped in sauce).
The reason I qualified the title to this tip is that I have had a couple of bad experiences with lousy food and lack of cleanliness at Pizza Huts in other states. This one however was a pleasant surprise and was clean, neat and the staff were not rude at all.
With a coupon which are readily available in the newspaper flyers and at the motel desk, you can get a good meal for two for under $15.
to get there:
route 73 east to route 119/GRAFTON ROAD and then north on route 119 to PLEASANT ST (route 7). a short jog east on route 7 and then a jog north on ELK STREET (becomes DECKERS CREEK TRAIL, still route 7). Then north on ROGERS AVENUE and connect to EARL L CORE ROAD (and these are still part of route 7).
if you are on route I-68 then just take it to exit 4, route 7 north and travel north a half-mile.Related to:

visit Dorsey's Knob Park
The Native American's called this place Sky Rock because you felt like you were in the sky when you climbed up there. George Dorsey bought the area and after his death his descendants renamed the area in honor of him and gave the land to the city.
Sky Rock is the center hill (but not the highest in the county) and the distant hills make the rim of a bowl in all directions.
It is a popular place for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts to spend a pleasant afternoon from late spring to late fall (winters are a bit difficult at 1400 feet and in the open).
The park has 70 acres of woodlands and hills and outcrops, all with fantastic views of the area and nature.
Just south of the area, the property is now all built up with motels and condominiums and apartments that are popular because of the great views.
