Looking for an excellent diner, drive-in or dive

I am a big fan of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and wish we had somewhere around the Philly area like the places on the show. Any recommendations?

  1. Dive:
    Charlie's Hamburger's in Folsom PA.
    They only serve burgers and shakes.

    1. Guy Fieri has been to two places in Philly: the Silk City Diner and the Dining Car and Market.

        He was also recently at filming at Honey's, Good Dog, and Memphis Taproom. I would never classify any of these as diners, drive-ins, or dives, but I've never seen the show.

          The memphis taproom is neither a diner, drive in, or dive. Damn Guy.

      2. He also did a segment at Daddypops in Hatboro.

        1. I don't watch the show because I find the host annoying, so I'm not sure these fit the criteria...

          Grey Lodge Pub in the northeast for amazing tap selection and above-average and somewhat creative pub food.

          Also the Hulmeville Inn for another amazing tap and bottle selection. The food is not great (it is not their focus, and they still allow smoking inside) but they make do with a griddle and a fryer.

          1. Thanks, I will give a few of them a try. I know the places he visited in the Philly area were for the fried food episode and scrapple. Thanks.
