Came at noon on a Wednesday before everyone returned to school. Place was empty yet somehow it still took over an hour for our food to arrive. Guacamole on the burger was brown and runny and literally looked like vomit. Medium burger was extremely well done. Bottle of Heinz was empty and upon request for more, waitress returned with a...

We traveled to Bethlehem to visit friends. Stopped into their old hangout which they called the "Ho." Some changes evident over the last 30 years! Beers were still cold and inexpensive. My husband wanted a burger for old times sake. Enjoyed it. I had the meatball sliders which even though it was listed as a starter was plenty for me.... More

It was a nice spot for memorial day and some cheap pitchers of beer at $6 a piece. It has a deck and we had some enjoyable food and drinks on deck. The waitstaff was excellent and was available as much as he could especially being that he was back and forth from the inside to outside of restaurant. For... More

Food specials are expensive. You freeze your butt off in the winter cause there is no heat and it stinks like a dirty mop in the summer. The taps are cleaned by a vibration method, which means sludge eventually ends up in your glass. Discusting! Also, all of Bethlehem's drug addicts and losers are there the beginning of each month,...

Lets be sure you understand, the 'Ho' is a college hangout place. Bar first, eating place second. I have been many times over the years - it does not change much [if at all]. Realized I had never reviewed them - and since I ate this time... the chicken wings have good flavor. They are slightly breaded - which is... More

A visit to the Ho today evinces less nostalgia than disgust. Witness the paper napkins spread across the filthy floor. The once quasi-charming light fixtures in each booth sort of remain, without bulbs missing, most broken and hanging askew. Two worked when I visited, briefly. There was no service, at least apparent despite the passing of 10 minutes. I concluded... More

I had not been to this old fashioned bar for years-in those days it was a funky place with decent food. This time the food was dry and barely adequate. Worst of all was the juke box with loud speakers that was really annoying. This is not a place to go and have a good meal--it really is a college... More

If you smoke or want to smell like smoke, this is your kind of place. Ashtrays are on every table. The outside deck in the summer gives some refuge from the smoke. The menu has been simplified to one kind of burger, gone are the wide selection of burgers named for local colleges etc. A lot of dinner selections have... More
