If you're heading north to escape the heat, make a stop at Wert's. Terrific roast beef sandwiches (lean, thin sliced, piled nicely), and if it's summer, go for the strawberry shortcake. Served in a bowl, with a base of vanilla ice cream, then shortcake on top, and lots of strawberrys on and around the shortcake. Must be seen to be... More

FANTASTIC Burgers and great service. Definitely a locals place, and has a nice feel. Pics of the family on the walls. It's not fancy, more of a friendly diner style. Prices are reasonable. I had soup and a wonderful hand made burger and could not finish the meal. The onion rings are a local favorite. I'll be honest and say... More

This is a cool little place with great food. Went with friends who are locals. Got the onion rings which are really onion straws. Little greasy but good tasting. Wasn't impressed with the chicken wings as the breading wouldn't stick. I had the Wert's Burger which was excellent. I love my burgers stuffed. Desserts were huge and great tasting. Couldn't... More

We always look forward to a welcoming, caring staff whenever we visit Wert's. They seem to be a part of the family that has been operating this restaurant for many, many years. They make you feel like you are a valued client..........and their feelings are sincere. As for the food..............we have had everything from their "famous" onion rings & burgers... More

Werts makes a great burger and one of my favorite parts, if you order it medium rare or rare, thats how it is cooked and served! A lot of places overcook their burgers. NOT Werts! Onion straws are delicious as well, and are served as a massive basket.... definitely not a single serving. Soups are delicious and they have numerous... More

I live within blocks of this establishment and I have heard good things about this place. So on a Monday night, I decided to take my daughter out to Wert's. We ordered burgers as they have specials on Mondays. I was a bit disappointed that they don't substitute fries for their onion straws. My daughter's burger was cooked as ordered,... More

We've been eating here for the past several years. Of late the quality of the food is slipping. Too much salt in everything; and the cream soups are nowhere near as good, now, as they used to be. (Too much corn starch and not enough - Ahh, I think it's called - milk.) The burgers are still some of the... More

Wert's is a local favorite. When we were there, families (consisting of 3 generations in many cases) appeared to be enjoying themselves. Unfortunately, our experience was not a happy one. There were several clean tables and booths when we were ushered into the restaurant but we were seated at a noisy booth next to the cutlery station. The bench I... More

A unique lunch and fast dinner. Interesting menu selections with great WERT's BURGERS for a filling lunch special. Ask for what you want, and they will do their best to help out.
