Smoky, thick-cut bacon (from Nueske’s, the pride of Wittenberg, Wis.). A punchy garlic aioli. A chewy house-baked ciabatta roll. The ridiculously addictive (and made on the premises) potato chips are the proverbial icing on the cake. Price: $9.25.

Go To Blue Moon In York For An Upscale Dinner, Lunch - FlipSidePA

"...I'll never look at a BLT the same way again. Or several other comfort foods turned classy, such as Macaroni and Blue Cheese, Crab and Brie Quesadilla with Peach Salsa, and Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad, all on the menu at York Blue Moon Restaurant...

I went for the Chicken BLT (thanks to the server's recommendation), and it did not disappoint. The bacon is Nueske's (touted as the "world's finest applewood smoked meats" when I googled it online), topped with Bibb lettuce, cheddar cheese and the best part — fried green tomatoes — on a soft bun. The tomatoes really elevated the BLT from the classic we know and love..."

January 12, 2015 - Bob, My Friend
It is with a heavy heart and great sorrow that I inform you our valued customers, friends and suppliers that Robert D. Nueske passed away on January 12, 2015 with his family at his side.   Bob, as we all knew him as, was a champion of our “Brand” and an advocate for everyone on the Team. His message was heard loud and clear.  Protect our image and culture and be sure as we grow to embrace our new teammates and teach them what it means to be part of Nueske’s.  Bob taught us to be true to our brand, our products and ourselves.  I have had the privilege and honor to work for Bob and the Nueske family representing the best coworkers that anyone on this earth could imagine. Our world has been rocked by the loss of a person that meant so much to us all.  We move forward honoring his legacy staying true to who we are……and We Are Nueske’s!
