      I'm actually watching the episode now, I wonder how they end up at some places when doing these shows. Although I haven't had the Bomb cake at Gianna's Grille, I have to assume there are much better sweets out here than that. And Campo's for steaks is fine if you can't get to the big dogs of the steak world, but I was at John's Roast Pork today and it makes Campo's say "who's your daddy?" Either way it's good publicity for the city so that's cool with me.

        I agree. I have never tried Campo's and I have never heard of Gianna's Grille. I will try it out though. I love going to Franklin Fountain. Really cool place. I think that they try to pick a family buisness that will also ship the food. Anyway, it is good publicity.

          I believe part of the deal with the premise for the show is that all of the places they try will ship their product anywhere in the country. They usually give the information at the end of the show. Never heard of Gianna's, but it would make sense with Campo's as they operate the phillyhoagie.com website.
