Read about these pretzels so had to try for myself. Good but not great. Service was exceptional. Pretzel was not as fresh as I had thought it would be.

It was ok. Came with cheese which he said it threw him off. He's use to auntie Ann's. Like I said just... More

Being ex Philadelphian residents for 30 years, we had to take pretzels home to Florida. Authentic, for sure, right out of the oven and I think it was at least 20 to 25 pretzels for the price you would pay for 4 at the airport. We gave some away, and we froze some for my husband to eat later. They... More

Looking for a quick snack between flights at Philly airport, stopped a Philly Pretzel factory, I'm pretty boring, give me salted or cinnamon pretzels and I'm good. The hot pretzel at PPF were very good and as good or better than Auntie Anne's

Go here three times a month to get the 25 count with the spicy mustard. Take them to my shop where I work for all the coworkers. They don't last long, everybody has one or two at a time. The small bites with the cheese is also pretty good. Will keep returning for the best pretzels around.

Stopped here first as part of a food tour and had to return. The cheesesteak pretzels are THAT good! Also tried the hot dog and sausage pretzels, both good in their own way. Definitely worth a visit.

I am a Philly guy, born and raised. The main staple to my diet growing up was soft pretzels. I no longer live in Philly, but whenever I am home, for business or pleasure, my first stop is to Philly Pretzel Factory. The pretzels are soft and hot, with juast the right amount of salt. Reminds me of when I... More

Eating hot pretzels right out of the oven are a real treat. The Pretzel Factory offers an affordable selection with free condiments. We had enjoyed these on previous occasions at a stadium, but just out of the oven is a whole new experience!

The pretzels are extremely fresh! They werent too soft and not too hard. Even the pretzels with little to no salt had a salty taste within the bread. Seriously, add the cheese sauce it is beyond wonderful! I truly wish we had one in Central Florida!
