Road trip from Buffalo to Pittsburg

Hi there, we're roadtripping all the way from Toronto, Ontario down to Pittsburg. According to the map, major routes are from I-90 south to I-79 I believe. I've done some searches both on here and google but haven't had much luck in finding good recs for great stops along the way.

As a canuck, we're looking for one of our stops to be true american diner experience or really, just a diner that serves some great grub! Any other recs along the way (towns to visit, restaurants) we're totally game for as well.

Any help would be appreciated!

  1. Not a diner, but a couple miles off I-79 at Grove City (where there's also a big outlet mall) is the Iron Bridge Inn. Not inspired food, but I think it's great grub, solid steaks, full bar, etc. Don't skip dessert. This would be towards the end of your drive, about an hour north of downtown PIttsburgh. Entire drive should only take maybe 6 hours at most of driving time.

    If you want something more midway you could look for recs for Erie. I can't help you there, though; don't think I've ever eaten in Erie.
