This may get moved to the Pennsylvania board but I wanted to alert Philly people who may not know about it to Wert's in Allentown. Around the corner from the Civic theater and wonderful. No reservations and not fancy. Very pleasant, however, and great casual food. Apparently, it's an institution. Burgers are a specialty. I don't eat meat but had probably the best veggie burger I've ever eaten. Others enjoyed fish and chips and a monte cristo. We had regular beers but they offer birch beer on tap. Not to be missed are their onion rings - more like straws. Very thin and lightly breaded. We shared a huge plate. These came recommended online. And, when we asked a friendly passerby for directions to Wert's, he said to be sure order them. Good advice. Btw, we arrived at 5:50 last night Friday and there was about a 10 minute wait. Arrive any later and I've heard the wait is longer.
