Had dinner here before catching a movie at the 19th St Cinema. Each of us had burgers (I had the Burger of the month which was excellent). My wife, who needs to be gluten free had a burger (no bun) and found that the waiter...More

My wife's grandparents frequented here and now we do. Their soups are to die for, and the atmosphere and staff are extremely friendly! We highly recommend this hidden gem in Allentown.

Ok so I have been to this restaurant a few times. I am a 30 year old professional, and the first time i walked in this place, I almost walked back out. Obviously this place is very popular with the older generation. We sat down,...More

Was in Allentown for an Iron Pigs game, and went to this place beforehand after seeing the Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The burgers at Wert's were outstanding, and all the ingredients (salads, side, etc) were very fresh. We also tried the onion rings,...More

Werts is a long time family owned and run restaurant in the Lehigh Valley. The locals know it well and senior citizens have been going there since childhood. It has an excellent waitstaff (often the owners themselves). A varied menu ranges from a vast array...More

Wert's hamburgers are absolutely the best you can get in the Lehigh Valley area. It is family-run, owned by the same family since they opened a half century or so ago. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. Don't expect gourmet food, just simple food well-prepared....More

I love good food and I LOVE WERT'S!!!!! The other reviews are understating it's quality. While it's not a place to order Filet Mignon or Lobster Tail, it is a place to go for the best Burgers in the entire Lehigh Valley! The sides (potatoes,...More

This is not a fancy dress up place. But if you want great eats, a couple of beers and plenty of attention, Wert's can't be beat. The restaurant is in an expanded house and has a bit of a diner / pub feel to it....More

Wert's is kind of like a diner playing dress up. All the local favourites, but a much better atmosphere than the average diner. Some prices are higher than they would be in diners, but it's worth it. If you're into delicious soups, call and ask...More
