Homestyle Cooking Keeps Customers Coming Back to Schlepp’s

MORRISTOWN — Whether it’s their rotisserie chicken, dry rub ribs, or a three egg omelet — it’s that signature homestyle cooking in a family friendly atmosphere that keeps customers returning for more at Schlepp’s Family Restaurant just off the I-70 exit near Morristown, according Owners Mary Ann and Rusty Lucas of Bethesda.

“We give big portions out, you have plenty to eat, and you don’t leave hungry,” said Rusty Lucas. He said they run weekly specials, including their chicken fricassee and pot pork which is offered on Sundays. Other menu favorites include: baked or deep fried cod, spaghetti, roast beef, meatloaf, chili pork chops, tuna salad, chicken salad, fresh burgers and their macaroni and potato salads.

Their large breakfast menu is another big draw for customers, according to Lucas. He said their omelets have always been popular among their return customers.

“We are noted for our omelets. We have a big three-egg omelet,” he said. Lucas said about 75 percent of their business is from local residents.

Maryann Lucas said she began working at the restaurant back in 1990, and it wasn’t until 2001 that her and her husband decided to purchase the restaurant.

They said it truly is a family restaurant as their son Randy started working at the restaurant many years ago as a teenager and continues working there today.

She said their homemade bread has continues to be very popular with their customers, whether it’s served on the side with lunch or dinner or or served as toast or French toast with breakfast selections.

In addition they are adding their fresh strawberry pie to the menu on weekends throughout the summer.
