Every town should have a cozy bar with cheap beers, friendly servers and fantastic sandwiches. For Lafayette Hill, that bar is Ye Olde Ale House. For roast pork, you’re better off making the hike to John’s or Tony Luke’s in Pennsport, but the roast beef here rivals the best of the Philadelphia sammies, and the roast ham is a close second. They’ll try to push their specialty fries on you (topped with gravy, with cheese, with chili and cheese, and more), and if you succumb, go for the loaded Continental fries. Just tell them you want them well done, because there’s nothing worse than pale, limp fries — no matter what you top them with.
