Conestoga Rd and W. Wayne Ave.
Rating: 3 silver spoons out of 5
Overview: Possibly the best dive bar in the area — great sandwiches and cheap beer.
Food: I’m going to say its the best hamburger on the Main Line — not because of its whopping size (18oz), but because it tastes so damn good. Can occasionally be overcooked, but if you order medium rare you should be fine. Lots of other good sandwiches to choose from as well — cheese steaks, roast beef and roast pork, etc. Bring your appetite. Takeout also available.
Ambiance: Small place, but somewhat bright and usually not too crowded (except for football games). The biggest drawback is the low ceilings which make the place extremely smoky, even when its not all that crowded. Avoid at all costs when there is a band (some Saturday nights), as the music is consistently loud enough to hear in the center of Wayne, ruining the normally laid-back atmosphere of “The Beef”.
Service: Actually, pretty good.
Value: Not haute cuisine by any means, but great value for what it is.
