Why choose Pub Dunegal?
1. Local is fresher.
Pub Dunegal isn’t just a sponsor of the Mount Joy Farmers Market, we are a customer! We feature seasonal menu items that are purchased from local purveyors and farmers. This cuts down on travel time, allowing fruits and vegetables to be picked when ripest. Meats are chosen from local suppliers meaning they are cut fresher and no chemicals need to be used to preserve them. Large chains cannot buy locally as the food must be the same all over the country, thus they cannot take advantage of Lancaster County’s rich agricultural resources.
2. Local is smarter
No matter how much money chains spend telling you what you want to eat, only you really know. Neighborhood restaurants are built and grow by listening to their customers, not trying to change their attitudes. Pub Dunegal features specials from all types of cuisine. These specials help us find what our customers are looking for. It also allows us to take advantage of seasonal products and dishes.
3. Local is richer
Supporting local restaurants keeps more of your money in your community. Pub Dunegal prefers using local sources for food and services which means our money stays local as well, thus magnifying the benefits of your support. We are not the only local restaurant to do this, but no chain restaurant can.
4. Local is greener
Your local restaurants are exactly that– local. They aren’t at the mall or in some distant shopping center. That means less fuel. Maybe you can even walk to a local place, meaning the only fuel you need is the food you order! Pub Dunegal’s commitment to local food and suppliers means we use less fuel too.
5. Local is more relaxing
Chain restaurants want you to eat and run. They need to to pay for all of their TV ads and expensive leases in malls. They need to get someone else in your seat– fast. At Pub Dunegal, we want you to enjoy your meal. In some cases we may even need you to relax, as fresher is sometimes slower. Our commitment is to quality food, not to turning tables.
