Wolfe’s Diner – Dillsburg, PA


The outside of the diner. It appears as it did when new; a real time warp.

The wonderful original neon sign. It still works. Hand painted signs advertise the $1.25 breakfast specials, Daily Specials and Lunch & Dinner.

The incredibly clean and well preserved interior of the diner.


Sugar and Seeburg 200 Wall-o-matic. The 200 wall-matic was only made from 1955 to 1956, from what I’ve been able to find.

  1. Regarding the wallboxes at Wolf’s, Seeburg made the these from the introduction of the first 200 selection machine, the V-200, until sometime in 1959. After that they only made 160 selection units and these boxes seem to have been converted to 160 select by an odd method of blanking what had been the “1” and “0” buttons and moving those to what was the “2” and *8″ positions.

    I have a number of these systems on location in and around NYC. 50 years and still running.

  2. I used to live in Mechanicsburg back in the early 70s and would always eat at Wolfes Diner any chance I got. Recently I returned to Hershey, Pa for my 40th high school homecoming and stayed with relatives that live in Dillsburg. I had to visit Wolfes again and it didnt disappoint. Everything was great; the food, the prices. I even tried to buy one of their t-shirts but they were out of stock.

  3. Have been visiting Wolfes for many years and love it. I think I found one of your old signs from Route 15 , I wold guess from the from the 50’s. Good food and great service.
