MUST EATS at ARCHER’S TAVERN- KETTERING/DOROTHY LANE:
— AWARD WINNING CHILI: Every year they hold a chili cook off, and the winner not only wins cash, but their chili goes on the menu for a year. The result is the most flavorful chili around. It is ridiculously good.
— ARCHER’S ALE: This is the Big Ragu’s “go to” brew at Archers. It is an ESB (Extra Special Bitter), but don’t let the name ESB scare you, it is a light refreshing beer. It is brewed in Cincinnati by Rivertown Brewery, ESPECIALLY for Archer’s Tavern. Try this winner in a pint glass.
— GRILLED, BLACKENED TILAPIA OVER RICE: This will knock your socks off if you love fish. A nice, clean , fresh filet. The blackened seasoning gives it a perfect balance. We suggest a side salad and rice for your sides to complete a perfect pairing.
— WINGS “SWEET AND SEXY STYLE”: This is why you read Food Adventures, because we know
things no one else does. These wings are NOT on the menu, but available by special request. These are wings with Dry Rub spice, drizzled with Spicy Garlic sauce, then tossed in Sweet BBQ sauce. The result is tangy and slightly hot taste of joy. Probably the best wing sauce we have ever tasted.
— THE PHILLY CHEESESTEAK: A massive, heaping sandwich filled with meat, peppers and melted provolone cheese. You can also request cheese whiz on this monster. We say, go for it. This is how they do it in Philadelphia. Your choice of shaved ribeye steak or sliced chicken breast for the meat. Tip: ask for extra mayo.
— TACO PIZZA: Good, flavorful and spicy! The ground beef matches well with the cheese and jalapenos. The fresh dough is a hallmark and we absolutely love it.
— STICKY BURGER: Where else in town can you get a burger with Peanut Butter on it ? The result is an incredible taste that mimics a peanut Thai taste. In the 5 year hisory of Archer’s only 2 people have returned the burger because they did not like it. TRY IT !
— FUDGE BROWNIE SUNDAE: Oh mama…. the brownie is served hot, covered in hot fudge. A scoop of vanilla ice cream tops that, and caramel is drizzled over the whole thing. Turn on the lights and call the law, we dont care if we ever get well…
What great stuff. A local eatery with spot on food, service and prices, just like the original. This location should be a home run too.
Food Adventures would like to send congratulations to the owners and staff on their new locale. It is a pleasant place, and is perfect for family and friends. It will also be a great stop for those softballers, and other sports teams at Delco Park for after game dinners and drinks.
