When in the mood for wings that are just right and not oversized, I go to Franks a Lot. The sauce is great and they heat up well, unlike other wings. Take a batch home for dinner for all the family to enjoy as they...More

Reading Terminal is pretty overwhelming. While I might have wanted to try some of the more exotic offerings or maybe a cheese steak place for a Philly experience, the kids in our group really wanted simpler fare AKA chicken tenders and fried. This was not...More

The perogies are fantastic and so is the cornbread. I eat here when I'm in a rush. The people you order with are just rude but the cashier was very friendly. Everything looks awesome and very fresh.

They have lots of options here. My daughter loved the mac and cheese and chicken fingers with homemade honey mustard. I had the corn bread which was awesome.

The first time we ate here, it was hard to understand the people behind the counter, but a wonderful local made recommendations for me and she hit the nail right on the head. BBQ chicken, macaroni and cheese, banana cornbread. Yum. This is a busy...More
