Recs for Pottstown?

Can anyone recommend a good place for dinner around Pottstown? Price/cuisine open..
Pickings are a bit slim in Pottstown, mostly diners, chains, and pizza joints. Best bet is to head down to Phoenixville, only about 20 minutes away where there are plenty of great choices.
Funky Lil' Kitchen was a good recommendation. Easy parking on the street (at least at 6PM on a Wednesday) and almost empty. Service was friendly.
Pork cheek ragout on puff pasty was a nice app. For an entree, I had a strip steak, which was perfectly cooked. However, it was about 2.5x3 inches and not sliced, and being a toothsome cut, it was a bit hard to handle (it kept tipping over!). Would have been a better dish if served sliced as usual. Dessert was a slice of pumpkin cake with stewed fruit, simple, nice. Good cappuccino.
BYOB, but their wine glasses are absolutely terrible, having more in common with those old Welch's grape jelly jars that could be reused as glasses. It's sad when trying to be trendy makes you do something stupid! Bring your own wine glasses.
This discussion reminded me that I had never been to Henry's, didn't even know where it was. We scouted the place out, found it, and even met Henry, although we didn't eat there (it was 2:30 pm).
We'll try it soon and I'll report back. I like what he's trying to do. It may be a problem in Pottstown selling entrees in the $20 range.
