Oldie but Goodie

Yes the decor is dated and the customers are dated but the food is still fresh as ever. No matter what you order it is prepared the right way and served hot. I recently tried the Hot Roast Beef Sandwich for the first time and discovered it to be the best I ever had. Hamburgers are the house... read more

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.

We had a burger, haddock, onion rings, spinach balls & coconut cream pie. Everything was WONDERFUL, not greasy & decently priced. Waitress was available even though it was busy. Noise level pretty loud at 2:30 but much better at 3:15 pm. Staff very friendly & we got to meet Mr. Wert on our way out! Will definitely be back -... More

A friend and I ate here for burgers. I ordered mine medium rare whereas my friend ordered hers medium well. Her burger was definitely less than medium but the waitress realized this right away and took the burger back to be cooked to the correct order. The waitress stopped back a few times to apologize and to check on us.... More
