Long time family business with friendly local atmosphere. Busy at lunch time. Lots of regular customers. Everyday soup specials and always a great selection of burgers. Thin onion rings are great but know that the serving is very large.

I was on the road with some new colleagues passing through. Needed a quick place for lunch and to get this small team together for the first time. We happen to be in Allentown. Found Wert's on TA and it was the right spot. Plenty of space and not too loud given the number of people here. I had a... More

I got a blue cheese burger that was just ok. The meat was under cooked and the blue cheese more like a sauce. The next time I would get it on the side. Them their credit card machine was not working and we had to give them our secret code.

Found this on TripAdvisor and made a side trip on our way to the Poconos to have lunch. It was well worth the stop! Great menu at very good prices. All the ladies split burgers and got sides and were stuffed! The seafood bisque, a Tuesday specialty, was outstanding. All good is home made, including the fabulous desserts. We met... More

Werts is a favorite place for us. We love their burgers and fresh cut French fries. They are reasonably priced and have dinner options too. My husband loves the hot roast beef sandwich with homemade mashed potatoes.

Wert's is a family operated restaurant located near the Allentown Fairgrounds. It is such a welcome change from the national chains. Their menu is varied, ranging from homemade soups, salads, excellent entrees and perhaps the best burger ever, the Wert's Burger with cheese! Also, try the fries topped with crabmeat and cheese sauce. The Wert family are just great people... More

The place is right out of the 1960s (decor, servers and menu). It's very clean and cheerful. Always crowded. Very down to earth. I had the best plate of fried veggies ever 0 including broccoli and cheese and corn something AND a fried pickle! Went the next night I like it so much, but the fried crabcake sandwich was disappointing... More

This family operated business for over 42 years, second generation was a special find. Menu items all made with loving hands. Onion straws a must! A basket full that serve four or two. Open faced turkey platter and beef platter delicious. Family staff made us feel like a local, very personable an warm. At 3 pm the place was packed.... More

Wert's Cafe is one of the best restaurants in the Lehigh Valley. Food is wonderful, atmosphere is cozy and friendly. Service with a smile and great prices. Value for you money with exceptional food and a great variety. So many dishes It always hard to decide. French Fries are handmade and delicious and so are their onion straws. Best burgers... More

Wert's is something of an institution in Allentown, famous for its hamburgers and onion rings. And they're great...no question. But Wert's is also a full cafe/diner, with a large and varied menu. In general, what you can expect are the usual large portions of fairly standard quality diner food. Nothing extraordinary (except for those burgers). It's a crowded space, with... More
