We stop by Zandy's about once a month. You can always find coupons in the newspaper or circular coupon ads for buy 1 get 1 free steak sandwiches. These steak sandwiches are as good as any you can find at a great value. The fries order was big enough to fed two easily. You have to try this place. Eat-in... More

Zandy's has been in Allentown for as long as I can remember. They, by far, have the best steak sandwiches in Allentown. The sandwiches are huge and you always see someone you know. Definitely one of the locals favorites.

My dad swears by this place as it's been around forever. Whenever he returns to Allentown he always stops in to get a cheese steak sandwich. I've never stopped in because it looked like it was closed most of the time. Well that's the "hook" I guess as the place is very simple and there is no fluff. other places... More

I haven't been to Zandy's in a few years since I moved away from Allentown. Today my work ordered food from there and wow it was so delicious. I ordered the California Cheesesteak and cheese fries. The fries were crispy and hot when a co-worker returned to work with them. The cheesesteak was very full and had a bunch of... More

Zandy's Steak Shop is an Allentown icon. They really do have great steak sandwiches! They are packed full, good sauce, great rolls! Malone's Rolls....and they are great! In our opinion, they are best to eat there, because they can be a little juicy and this keeps those great rolls from getting a little soggy. Good fries too.

Zandys has been around Allentown for over 50 years. Their steak sandwiches are delicious, and their French fries are like no others. They have a wide variety of foods, sandwiches, ice cream, and even milkshakes. Whether it's eat in, or takeout, Zandys is the place.
