Great Bar Style Food at Reasonable Prices

This is a place that resembles a neighborhood bar that serves great bar style food. It is counter service where you order and pick up at the counter. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. We tried the "Allentown" Cheesesteaks with everything. This includes two sauces, cheese, pickles, and... read more

This location is the better of the two Willy-Joe's, I would not go to the downtown location. This is by far better than Yocco's the other well known dog place. The dogs here are tasty and not too salty and roles are always fresh, price is right and if you enjoy a cold brew with the dog their beer is... More

Love this place, best hot dog's in the area or anywhere, use the Lehigh St location, it is different, cleaner, place to sit down, and if you like a brew this location has beer. The downtown location is shabby and not in a very good area, cheese steak is fine at Lehigh but downtown awful,

We generally use the Lehigh Street location because it is closer and parking is easier. We go about once a month for crisp hot dogs w/everything (mustard, onion and chili). They are reminders of the hot dogs served in the Coal Region in the 50's. It could be cleaner and the entrance-way is a turnoff but don't let that deceive... More

OK, I was always a hot dog addict. My addiction started at this place back in the 1950s. I was fascinated watching big Willy make those dogs and steaks, while Josephine supervised. My fascination with the taste and texture of a WJ dog bordered on devotion. That tasty hot dog, the magical chilli sauce, the snappy onions, and that moist,... More
