Around here, it depends if you were raised a Pott's or Yocco's kid. Me, nothing can top a Yocco's dog except a Yocco's hamburger with the works. And, don't forget the large order of pierogies!!!!

Went here after seeing some signs. What a shame. I totally regretted it. They took my order by yelling over the counter and other people. The hot dogs were dry and wrinkled and their sauce sucks so does their fries. I'd rather make my own.

A trip to the Lehigh Valley isn't complete without enjoying Yocco's. The location on Catasauqua Road is very close to the Staybridge.

Hot dogs are good, and the use best quality. Steak sandwiches lack flavor (better @ Stahley's)! A little pricey, so get BOGO from E. Books.

I've been eating Yoccos since I was little! They are still by far the best. Over done dogs, on a steamed roll, sauce and mustard only for me! Side of perogies and a box of chocolate milk has been a staple for me everytime I'm in town, I even take them to go!

The hot dogs are very good and so is the service. Try their sauce- you probably won't be disappointed!

The one nearby was undergoing renovations, so I drove the closest on. The dogs were nicely done, with the right amount of juiciness and flavor. They offered me a sample of pierogies after I noticed a few people order them. I tried one, but was not impressed.

When we "come home" to Allentown, the first thing we do is pull into the nearest Yocco's for Steak Sandwiches, Large order of Pierogies, and Large Chocolate Milks! And we keep coming back at least once a day while we're in town for either lunch or dinner!! Too bad they don't take credit cards, we have to keep a large... More

This place used to be my favorite, that has all changed and I recommend Willy Joes on Lehigh Street (not their other location). Yocco's has hot dog rolls that are not fresh tasting or steamed, the dogs are too salty. Try their steak sandwich is very good. What more can I say, below average

Yocco's has been an Allentown favorite for 90 years. It is good, wholesome fast-food. Hot dogs, fries, pierogis and burgers. Everything has a homemade feel to it. It doesn't taste bland or generic like a lot of fast food. It is a unique, Allentown flavor and experience. Order a hot dog with the works.
