This is my favorite diner in Allentown as it has better food and better prices. Did I mention it has a fully stocked bar? And the nicest servers make this place great.

Great find, just off 476. Had dinner but could have had anything. Lots of room and great desserts. Will return!

Had lunch/breakfast with 11 friends today. It always amazes me how some restaurants can accommodate larger parties and some can't. Chris's always does a great job when we come. The food is always good. So many choices and they seem to always get them just...More
