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 interstate 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 she 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 is very popular with their customers, whether it’s served on the side with lunch or dinner or served as toast or French toast with breakfast selections.

Schlepp’s offers catering year-round and throughout the holidays for any special occasion or event. For more information about their catering or for carry-out, call 740-782-1528.
