Vince's Cheesesteaks
You don’t have to wait for summer.
Get the fair foods you crave any time, just down the street.

The Allentown Fair won’t be here for another five months or so, but folks yearning for an authentic taste of the fair should be happy to know that Vince’s Cheesesteaks -- a fixture at the fair for more than 30 years -- is open year-round.
At its permanent location in the Wal-mart Shopping Center between Allentown and Trexlertown, Vince’s serves its characteristic cheesesteaks and Italian sausage sandwiches, as well as virtually every other staple of casual Italian-American cuisine: calzones, strombolis, pizza, subs, hoagies and wings.
The menu also features 10 varieties of specialty French fries, an assortment of homemade pierogies and meal-size salads that include choices such as southwest chicken salad and cheesesteak salad (why not?).
Vince, Sr. opened the business in 1957. It quickly gained popularity and later expanded to several regional fairs, including Allentown, Bloomsburg and the Kutztown Folk Festival. Locals may remember the tiny but bustling double drive-thru operation that Vince, Jr. ran during the 80’s and 90’s at 15th and Allen streets in Allentown.
Now on Mill Creek Road, Vince’s carries on the family tradition and keeps on serving the favorite foods that have earned several awards among festival concessionaires.
