Burger - Alaska Pete's Rt 209 3 Miles North

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.

Place For Breakfast - We would like your opinion.
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.

- 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.
