top 10 favorite restaurants in Lansdale---- Fridays in Pennsylvania

OK, the list could be longer, but I kept it at the ten best places to eat in Lansdale (in my opinion)... and all of them are not only within walking distance, but also in the borough proper.

Chong's Dumpling House... Chinese food. Great variety of dumplings and soup. And the seasonal veggie of the day makes a healthy side dish. 13 West Main Street, Lansdale, PA‎ - (215) 855-4812

Giuliano's... No place to sit down, but this neighborhood deli is a huge favorite for subs and steak sandwiches. Word on the street is they now have a pizza oven. and you will be met with good folk with a fine sense of humor... three generations of it no less.
429 North Chestnut Street Lansdale, PA 19446-2625 (215) 368-0412

Little Something Nice [Sadly no longer there]... Used to be real close, but still easy to walk to. The owner is a great guy and will converse with you in Italian if you choose. Great place for coffee and a sandwich whether you are waiting for a train or not. 101 West Main Street Lansdale PA 19446 (215) 631-7997

Nadia Thai [Lost their lease]... Has changed hands a few times and we sure like the hands making the traditional Thai salad (Som Tam) these days. I love the curries, especially the green. 113 Walnut Street, Lansdale, PA 19446 (215) 855-3256

Not Just Sandwiches[Is no more]... Years ago I did a search for breakfast spots and we came across a place called Daddy Pops in Hatboro, PA. A bit of a drive for the pancakes, but so worth it. Well they opened this place in Lansdale and still spice them up with nutmeg. I dig a side of ham.

Oasis... Farthest away, but we love to walk there all the same... check out my post. 821 West Main Street, Lansdale, PA‎ - (215) 368-9230

Saigon on Main[Changed hands is now Asian Legend, with somewhat different menu]... Well I guess this is the farthest since we have to cross Main Street from where Oasis is to get there. Took forever to open. Pho is wonderful and the menu has many a vegetarian option compared to other local Vietnamese restaurants. 844 West Main Street, Lansdale, PA (215) 368-9888

Shell Fish Sue[really sad to see this go]... Most recent on the list and is building a reputation for its Lobster Mac and Cheese.  We went during the olympics so chose the fish and chips.

Virago[Another casualty of rising rent]... A healthy lunch or breakfast option needed. A cup of coffee? A gluten free cupcake? If you are in search of gluten free or vegan baked goods, go to a place that makes it so tasty you don't know the difference.

West Main Diner... Need a good family meal at a good price from good folk. This is it. 805 West Main Street, Lansdale, PA (215) 855-7801

OK Lansdalians... what did I miss?


  1. huey's is good for a burger and brew plus they've been heavily involved in the L-dale for years, especially with bike night. good, friendly folks and just a few doors down from oasis.

  2. I think I need to visit the Landsdale Farmer's market and Thyme for Tea

  3. Red... Huey's was mentioned in our discussion. my entire list lacks brew... what's with that?

    Michelle... Bring that dude of yours and we can double date. for Saturdays, a reservation is a good thing

  4. really not too many places right now that offer both good food & good brew. i have hope for maguires but so far, i've been underwhelmed.

    not sure if they're considered l'dale & certainly not within walking distance but la campagnola on s broad street is awesome! wonderful family runs/works the house and we've watched the kids grow up in the restaurant. mom runs the front of the house so it's always attentive but not overbearing service. amazing classic italian food prepared by dad in the kitchen (although always too much to eat at one sitting!) we take a bottle of wine and an appetite. my favorite is spaghetti carbonara: rich, creamy, decadent.

    great family, always consistent & wonderful meal.

  5. Red--- we have enjoyed La Campagnola ourselves. I agree food is great and plentiful. The folk are nice.

  6. Wayne, we love Toscano on Broad Street
