Evans' Eats Spoon Rate:
Summertime is ideal for simple, outdoor eating. We started our season of alfresco dining by finally visiting Hellertown's historic, well-known and loved, Vassi's Drive-in. Easily accessible to Route 78 and nearby the popular Saucon Rail Trail, Vassi's is a delightful stop for summer sojourners. For "hole-in-the-wall" alfresco lovers, it has an attractive front which features a walk-up and order ice cream counter.
The menu offers a simple classic sampling of classic family-friendly favorites including burgers, hot dogs, salads, sandwiches and a variety of sides and appetizers. We highly recommend their New York gyro ($8.65) as a flavorful, satisfying treat. We also sampled the buffalo chicken cheesesteak ($6.70), a solid option, but it did not top their locally well-known gyro.
For those who are interested in a sweet ending, Vassi's offers soft and hard ice cream, sundaes, milk shakes and banana splits.
Outdoor eating does provide a view of current roadwork, so it requires some flexibility. An indoor dining room is also available for a more quiet experience. This summer keep it outdoor, simple, family friendly and inexpensive.
