Spicy chicken sandwich/Ron Knerr


If there is any benefit to commuting a long distance for work, I would have to say discovery of a collection of restaurants in Wayne meets the qualification.   

Occasional traffic issues take me off the Blue Route as I avoid the dreaded backups and on one trip my trusty Waze routed me through Wayne, PA. I found the area near the Wayne train station has an abundance of restaurants that provided the incentive to visit over the last few years.  One of those spots is Christopher’s – A Neighborhood Place.

Known for farm-to-table comfort food, we chose to visit Christopher’s to enjoy a weeknight dinner.   Owner Christopher Todd and his wife Molly have been operating Christopher’s in Wayne since 2001.  (The second outpost in Malvern recently shuttered due to COVID in October 2020 after six years of operation.)

Lenny's Deli becoming Ashley's 

The Conshohocken staple at 900 Fayette St. announced on their website that they will be closed beginning New Year's Eve and be closed the entire month of January while they rebrand the deli into Ashley's Conshohocken. We're thinking this is going to have to be a must for @RonKnerr to check out once the rebranding is complete. If you have another spot you'd like Ron to check out don't hesitate to email him at

... the rest of Ron's column

A tastefully decorated restaurant populated in part by younger college age clientele, we found it to be a budget minded choice for a good meal. The menu offers a wide variety of choices from appetizers to salads, sandwiches, and entrees. The standard Nachos, Potato Skins, Homemade Meatballs, Spicy Molasses Smoked Chicken Wings and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus were among the appetizer choices and salad varieties include Blackened Shrimp, Buffalo Chicken, Caesar and Mediterranean.   

Burgers, Chicken Club, Cuban, and variety of wraps cover the handheld options.  Entrée choices of Roasted or Grilled Salmon, Jambalaya, Chicken Breast (grilled or breaded), Meatloaf and Pork Chops offer larger portions at reasonable prices. Rounding out the menu are a selection of Brick Oven Pizzas, Mussels and Pasta.

Christopher’s offers a rotating an on tap craft beer list, numerous wine options by the glass or the bottled, and cocktail selection from a list of fifteen creations. I chose a Margarita and a DW Sherri chose a Cosmo as a start.  

We chose Chipotle Butter Shrimp as an appetizer, which were lightly fried large shrimp and served over corn griddle cakes with fresh salsa.   The shrimp were not overly spicy and were complemented by the corn cakes and the zing of fresh salsa.  For our meals, DW picked the Margherita Pizza and I selected the popular Spicy Fried Chicken sandwich, with waitress’s assistance for my choice. (Assistance needed, given the competitive options of Meatloaf, Jambalaya, or a Brisket Enchilada)   

A thick chicken breast was breaded with a crispy coating and doused with spicy sauce, dressed with a thick slice of fresh tomato, lettuce, and pickles. The personal Margherita Pizza had a nicely toasted crust with fresh basil and dollops of melted fresh mozzarella. Since the chicken sandwich was served with chips, we sampled the “five cheese” Mac and Cheese from the appetizer menu. The Mac and Cheese was served in a baking dish with al dente pasta and a flavorful cheese matrix topped with toasted breadcrumbs. DW and I agreed that the dishes qualified for a repeat, though some of the other offerings were enticing.
Our server was one of the most attentive we’ve had in a mid-level restaurant, with iced water delivery and cocktail orders as soon as we were seated.  Help with the menu selections were also offered in a friendly interactive exchange. Food arrived rather quickly, and the server checked on us frequently, making this experience somewhat memorable for the level of service.

While Christopher’s did not offer a white tablecloth fine dining experience that one might find at one of the nearby restaurants, it certainly succeeded in delivering a fresh meal with great service at a reasonable price.
