We frequently order burgers, soup, salads and sandwiches for lunch. Sometimes in house and sometimes to go, this is always a good choice! The special salad is a favorite (I change it to romaine lettuce) with chicken, apples or strawberries (in season), candied nuts and cheese. They also have the best raspberry vinaigrette dressing I have tried. Always a great... More

We are in Allentown for a few days for my wife's knee surgery. We came down the night before and decided to find a place to eat that was not fancy but had good ratings. What a find. The food was delicious and served piping hot. Our waitress was very cordial and checked on us numerous times during our meal,... More

Went for lunch recently and ordered burgers and fries- one of the few places in the LV that makes fresh-cut french fries. Good food but the atmosphere was that of a small diner. Will go back for lunch but would probably not eat dinner there.

This family business has been around for a long time. They have daily specials and usually a burger feature of the month. The menu is diverse with many choices. Small bar and drinks are reasonable. Some of the best lunches are served here

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.

Thank lmk1107
