A family-friendly spot for good times and feel-good fare, this warm neighborhood tavern serves up everything from black diamond steak to steamed clams, and daily specials keep business buzzing every day of the week.
Anything to look for this summer? Moscow Mule’s fair-weather sister, the Blueberry Mule—vodka, fresh blueberry syrup, lime juice, and ginger beer served in a copper mug. If you have something to celebrate, a newly unveiled party space—the Lockridge facility offers two private rooms with seating accomodations up to 175. Also, check their website for upcoming live dinner show dates.
If it’s my first time, what should I order? You’re going to want to come hungry for hefty sandwiches like the Mack Truck—smoky beef brisket, BBQ pulled pork, bacon, and coleslaw on a roll—or plates brimming with hearty eats like the Chicken and Waffles, which gets a regional twist with tender Pennsylvania Dutch-style pulled chicken, gravy, and housemade country mashed potatoes.
What’s there that I can’t get anywhere else? A homemade blue cheese dressing that regulars can’t get enough of. Try it on the Buckeye Bleu Cheese Potato Chips, freshly made chips served with mozzarella and scallions. Seafood lovers can add fresh lump crabmeat.
What’s Alburtis Tavern’s best-kept secret? Every time a train passes by, diners leap from their tables and spring to a bar stool—and those already at the bar cross their fingers—because the bartender spins a wheel. The winning seat receives a complimentary Miller Lite (or root beer).
