Restaurants in Allentown, PA

Yes, you can buy fresh produce at the Allentown Fairgrounds Farmers Market, but the main reason to come is for meat. Legacy of the city’s strong German and central European heritage, it is a place to find smoked meats of every kind, pierogies, sausages and bacon and ham, scrapple and souse, even liver pudding and head cheese. The city is rich with diners, cafes, and food stands that serve locally-made apple butter, shoofly pie, fastnachts, and funnel cakes. Philadelphia’s influence can be tasted in cheese steaks and hoagies, as well as soft pretzels and flavored ice. A long-time Roadfood favorite is Yocco’s Hot Dogs, established in 1922 and now a local chain. The dogs are well-browned on a flat-top grill, becoming crusty tubes that are bunned with onion, mustard and spicy chili sauce.
