Great Burgers

This is a small chain but in Jim Thorpe, Pa this restaurant is just off the Mahoning Valley interchange of the PA Turnpike. All of the meals I have had there are very, very good. My son had his surprise 30th birthday party there and they did a terrific job coordinating it.

We were in Allentown on Saturday night and we needed a restaurant for a quick dinner. I chose Pj's due to the fact that we had recently eaten in the Maple Shade, NJ location and had a terrific meal. Tis is a very small location in an old existing building. No hostess stand when you walk in, you kind of... More

I was in a slump as to where to eat and not wanting Red Robin, I decided to come here - haven't been here in forever. Great decision. We had to wait a few minutes due to Allentown parade just getting done, then promptly seated. We had wings with 2 different sauces, beer, 2 salads, and a wrap - all... More

We hadn't visited the PJ's in Allentown in quite some time. I used to be a fan of the taco salad, but since it was Tuesday/Wing night, I ordered the Inferno wings. It took a long time for them to be served and I would rate them a medium spice at best! Also, they could have been temperature hotter. I... More

If your looking to get seated and served last this is the place to be... we had an amazing time waited 45 min to have the people who came in 30 minutes after us seated first... I think it was because they were stones and people with the munchies vs actual hungry people have priority here. The waitress was very... More

We had a business lunch with a group of 6 on a Friday and enjoyed our experience. The wait staff and hostesses are attractive and friendly. The waitresses would make Hooters management jealous. The place is high energy, full of TV's and the food is great. Our food was hot and quick. Try the French dip.

Nothing special. Standard pub fare. Their "world famous wings" were okay. I think the fly buzzing around enjoyed the food more.
