My Go-To Restaurant

This has been an Allentown favorite for many years. Family run. Great menu. Food is very good and the service is excellent. The onion rings are out of this world!

The three of us went to Wert's Café since we hadn't been there in years. We were seated promptly with no wait. We had a great server who gave us the specials and then got our drinks which gave us some time to talk and look over the menu. It is a great menu with a little bit of everything.... More

We first heard about Wert's Cafe in the Road Food Guide which praised the restaurant's stuffed burgers. As we were passing through the Allentown area we felt a visit was well worth the small detour. Wert's is located just off of Allentown's main street in a relatively nondescript building. The interior is quite clean, bustling with staff and the restaurant... More

I had the Tina's burger there and was so thick and juicy along with those onion fries which are great and service was also very good. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Great dive for the food!!

Had lunch here when we visited the Farmers Market. I had the veal parmigiana sandwich on whole wheat bread, but it was not as good as my husband's onion rings burger. Service was decent. Place was clean and had the ambience of a diner. If the window shades were open it might have been more cheerful.

I have been going to Wert's Cafe for as long as I can remember. They have the best burgers in Allentown! It is a family run restaurant and they treat you like family.

Wife and I went here with another couple. Three of us ordered the Monday special which is a burger of your choice, onion rings, and a half piece of chocolate cake. My bruschetta burger with mozzarella was weird as it was served between flatbread, which I knew ahead of time. It was ok. The onion rings weren't rings and were... More

We love coming here because the food and service are always good. It's not an upscale place at all, but the quality of the food is great and the prices are really good. It can get really crowded on the weekends, but is worth the wait.

The only thing I do like here is the seafood chowder served on a Tuesday. Everything else I ordered on other occasions, was not good.
