Good Find

I found this place getting a Haircut next Door and the Barber recommended it. I have been back there now several Times and the Food is exceptional, just don't order any Steaks apparently that is the only thing the Chef is struggling with. Everything else is wonderful.

We visit Wert's Cafe at least once a month, if not more. The service is top-notch and the atmosphere is very inviting. We never had a disappointing meal at Wert's. The burgers are juicy and can bet topped with almost any topping. The Monday night burger special is unbeatable - any burger, a generous helping of their famous onion straws... More

Werts Cafe has been in Allentown 48 years. There's a reason. They have the best burgers in the world. And lots of other great tasting food. We went on a Monday not realizing they have a burger special which includes a sample of their onion rings, and a slice of chocolate cake that was to die for. I wish we... More

As many times as I am tempted to order something else, I know that a burger and onion straws will always be great here. I did try the ham and bean soup, and it was tasty and quite filling. Usually fast, efficient, friendly service as well.

Werts Cafe is a good place to go if you are not the gambling type and want a good meal. They have a fairly large menu and everyone should find something they like. The place is clean and the staff are friendly.

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
