Good place to Eat

1st off our navigation took us through these back roads to get here. From the outside does not look fancy or even like a restaurant. We walk in and it old school what you expect when you are in the country. The waitress came over sat us down and took our order. She was friendly and polite. We... read more

I really like BBQ and I like neat/different restaurants. This place fit the bill. Very good food, reasonable prices and friendly service. Being called Grumpy's I would not have been upset with good but grumpy service. :)

Aside from our bad experience with the bartender- the food was very tasty- not the best barbecue I have ever had- but very good non-the-less. This place is definitely worth the trip. The bartender was so very unfriendly though, it really put a sour taste in our mouth- no matter how polite and friendly WE tried to be, she was... More

We eat a lot of BBQ in the South so I consider myself well rounded when it comes to BBQ. When we pulled up to this building, my first instinct was to leave. It looked like a rundown old bar. Peeling paint, dirty walls - nothing that invited me inside. I wish I had listened, but we went in because... More

Having spent the last three years traveling to Austin, TX for work, I've indulged in some awesome Q, to the point of buying my own smoker as I am a now a huge fan. Grumpy's does not disappoint, and it is one of the few places in a wide radius that I can actually get BBQ brisket. Very good, and... More

Let me just say.... I give this place a "southern stamp of approval!" Truly magnificent, fall off the bone, smoked ribs! Sides were great, too. Also had the wings - YUM-MY!!! Prices and atmosphere put Grumpy's in my "Lehigh Valley Top 10".... you really should check this place out!

Local farmhouse style quaint bar and attached dinning room. The food is what you're hear for, although there is liveusic here often. Its the kind of place where you can walk in a stranger, grab a stool at the bar, and strike up a conversation with half the room befre you're 2 sips into your beer. The ribs are the... More

One of my favorite local spots to go when I'm in the mood for barbecue. The restaurant is nothing fancy, located in an old hotel that's been around awhile but the food is very good. The ribs are huge and to use the old saying fall off the bone good. Portions are also big.

We always stop to eat at Grumps when we are in Allentown shopping. Their BBQ is delicious and the shrimp bisque is great too. Always a nice crowd here too
