Best Pretzels Ever!

I actually go to the location in Samson and 16th. And I will get these pretzels when I'm out at other places. Not just best pretzel but best bargain in town!
Hands down best pretzel anywhere! I've had the plain and with mustard as traditionally done. However, I've made my own toppings too. Cinnamon sugar, chocolate, and honey all do well. Waaaaaay better than NYC pretzels too! ( I lived there and know)
If you take advantage of some of the deals you end up with a lot of pretzels! No worries! ...I freeze mine and then microwave in a paper towel. Many locations including street fairs and tour locations. Show all

Quick stop

Visiting the area. Potentially a place to move so was checking out the area and decided to get a quick snack. Had a pizza pretzel with sauce on the side. It was ok. Husband had hot dog pretzel. It was ok. Came with cheese which he said it threw him off. He's use to auntie Ann's. Like I said just needed something to snack on while scoping the area. Would go back again if I wanted a quick snack

Best soft pretzels around

Go here three times a month to get the 25 count with the spicy mustard. Take them to my shop where I work for all the coworkers. They don't last long, everybody has one or two at a time. The small bites with the cheese is also pretty good. Will keep returning for the best pretzels around.

The BEST pretzels in Philly

Whether you find yourself at the Frankford Ave location or downtown, the Pretzel Factory is quite delicious and is VERY affordable. There has only been one instance that I can remember where the pretzels weren't the freshest but even so, they were miles about any other pretzel I've had. You will be delighted by the varieties of shapes, sizes, and sauces if you are into trying new things (the pretzel-wrapped hotdog comes to mine). However, if you are more traditional in regards to pretzels, you s...till will not be disappointed by the quality, price, and taste. Absolutely delicious. The staff is also very welcoming at the Frankford Ave location specifically. Show all

Yummy Philly Pretzels!!

My husband is from Philly and is always craving authentic Philly Pretzels. OK... so we're in Philly, only to find that the street vendors no longer seem to sell pretzels!! Horror!! So we got on our iPads and searched around until we found the Philly Pretzel Factory. We went to the location at 1532 Samson. The pretzels were perfect. Warm and tasty. Got our baker's dozen and were on our way. Packed the leftovers in bags in our suitcases and when we got home, they were still really good!
