Philadelphia is an awesome place to visit for some good grub. Some of our local restaurants were seen on TV! Guy Fieri’s show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, to be more specific.
“Triple D” looks at food across America from all kinds of “greasy spoon” establishments. Guy visits locally well-known restaurants and talks to the staff as well as the customers to learn more about the grub. The show has been on since 2007 and is STILL making episodes. There is no shortage of great food in the country, especially when there are so many hidden gems. And boy, does Guy find ’em all.
Most of the spots featured on the show have crazy unique menu items. Guy goes back in the kitchen and gets an inside look on how the restaurant’s most popular dishes are made. Most of the time, you’ll see American comfort foods such as barbecue, hamburgers, and a good bacon-and-egg breakfast. The show also shines a spotlight on places that serve regional or cultural specialties.
Every chef and eatery makes their own spin on classics and they all look so delicious.
If you know Philly, then you know it’s not surprising that multiple spots from around here have appeared on the show. Our food scene is simply unmatched. We have such a wealth of inviting establishments with mouth-watering dishes in this city. Plus, you can find cuisine from all over the world in such close proximity. So it makes sense that Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives has hit this area a lot.
This list how now become a goal for us. And it may become one for you, too: to eat at every single one of these restaurants as soon as humanly possible (if you haven’t already), because dang do they look amazing.
