2. You do not have to take a tour to have the meal. Just call and ask for a "meal only" and we will put you with an already existing group to meet the minimum. (Directions to the meal will be emailed to you or you may pick it up at our Berlin office)
The menu includes tossed salad, homemade bread, peanut butter spread, baked chicken, roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, noodles, green beans, decaf coffee, iced tea, lemonade and pie. The tip is included.
Price per person, ages 12 and over ~ $25.00. Includes tax, tip and cookbook.
