FEATURED BUSINESSES:

Wiz Kidz in Bethlehem

WIZ KIDZ is an 80’s themed restaurant on East Elizabeth and Center Streets in Bethlehem who’s cheesesteaks would put any of the famous Philly cheesesteak shops to shame.. for real. They have a bunch of specialty steaks all with 80’s inspired names, but they also have other food like I’m looking now at a picture of Garlic Parm Pierogis. I wish I could smell them through the screen because they just look delicious. I definitely think I’ll be making a trip out there this weekend!
