meat and the beef is perfectly done to your order, juicy and
full flavored. Our staff reviewer writes " I have lived
here for 30 years and have traveled extensively, but have
never found a more fabulous hamburger feast than in our own
backyard at Alaska Pete's in Marshalls Creek. Besides the
burgers, Alaska Pete's is also the Poconos "Best Family
Restaurant" with a great variety of selections, reasonably
priced, for the non burger lover. King Crab Legs, Ribs, Pasta
- something for everyone in the family. At Alaska Pete's,
All of the Top Choice Sirloin is freshly ground, never frozen,
and supplied by a "boutique" packing house and delivered directly
from Philadelphia. They specially season their burgers
with a Char-Crust seasoning that has a wonderful flavor with
a distant hint of garlic. The burgers are then put on
a fresh, lightly butter basted, hamburger roll and seared
on the grill along the burgers. This combination gives
the best presentation, taste and appreciation by their dedicated
customers. They prepare and sell so many burgers that
customer is also guaranteed everything to be fresh including
the shredded lettuce, pickle, and tomato slice that comes
with the burger. Escorted by great french fries, this
is one burger that can't be beat.

Best Breakfast Here
- Tony's in East Stroudsburg on Crystal Street . Above
all the Pizzerias in the Poconos, this one was the tasters'
choice at our PoconosBest.com Tasting party where over 100 people
tasted an voted on the Best Pizza. Made the same way for two
generations. It's the sauce, stupid. The "gravy" on
the special dishes ain't too bad either. The place gets real
busy on Wednesdays ....You've been warned.
- The Pocono Cheesecake Factory, Rt
611, Swiftwater, Creamy with sooo many choices. Take one ..no
take 3 home they won't last long anyway. In 1984, Priscilla
Moore, began making cheesecakes in her home near the village
of Canadensis in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. The idea dawned
on her to convince local chef's at resorts and restaurants to
try her product. And a business was born! After a few months
a retail outlet opened on route 390 in Mountainhome, Pa. In
just one year the overwhelming response was so much that they
decided to expand to the current location on route 611 in Swiftwater.
By 1994 she added a 2,400 square foot warehouse and more than
doubled the original size of the baking and retail space. The
Pocono Cheesecake Factory became one of the Must Try attractions
in the Poconos. In 2007, Priscilla decided to ask her great
Friends Al and Carole Johnson to carry on the tradition of uncompromising
Quality and Freshness, supporting local farms sourcing our milk
and cheese, and a customer experience that created the success
to begin with.
Fix - Callie's.
Rt 191 Mountainhome. . You can find any chocolate you want.
Buy lots. The
Callie Family extends an invitation to Callie's Candy Kitchen
and Callie's Pretzel Factory in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

treats, and have fun at both locations. We're looking forward
to renewing old friendships and making new ones! Candies

- Big Creek, located
in Kresgeville, Pennsylvania on the southern face of the Pocono
escarpment in the valley of Big Creek. The soils are a chimera
of decomposing glacial drift and local slate and shale. Like
the natural history of the area, their wines are unique and
full of character. They strongly believe that wine is food,
and is at it's best on the dinner table. Putting down the fork
to pick up the glass allows pause for reflection, conversation
and rejuvenation of the palate.
the vineyard and winery in Kresgeville or the shop in historic
Jim Thorpe. Wine is one of those few pleasures of life that
is endowed with a distinct sense of place and presence. Enjoying
a fine wine at a beautiful table with family, without a sense
of where it is from or who made it is an incomplete experience.
