I love eating at diners. They are not only great places to get comfort food, but also a good way to experience a city's local culture. Over the years, I have been to many diners at many places throughout the US. Here are my favorites.
15 miles north west of Harrisburg, PA is a classic old-style hamburger drive-in restaurant: The Red Rabbit.
Yes, Pennsylvania, there are good restaurants in Braddock. Here is one with great food, good music, and a wide selection of craft beer.
On a recent road trip, I found a fantastic family restaurant in Stewartstown PA, just north of the Maryland border.
Life is wonderful when you stop in a small town and discover a Mom and Pop restaurant that serves delicious, home cooked food.
York Restaurant week offered me the perfect opportunity to dine in south-eastern Pennsylvania.
Just north of the Maryland/Pennsylvania border, about 4 miles from the Interstate 83, lies a small borough called Stewartstown. In it, you'll find one of the best barbecue places around with a rustic atmosphere and fantastic service.
For flavorful Caribbean inspired cusine, try out Kaya. It can be found in Pittsburgh's Strip District.
