Fried chicken and waffles

So many of my friends are addicted to the Food Network. They simply love watching all the shows and salivating over the good eats. Here in Pennsylvania, we have plenty of restaurants that have been featured on the network, because we simply rock.

So, what’s the No. 1 best Pennsylvania restaurant that has been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive Ins, And Dives?” The crew at Mashed.com has done the homework.

“There’s a solid chance any time you turn on Food Network that you’re gonna see Guy Fieri and his spiky hair headed to Flavortown on ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,'” they state. “The show has filmed nearly 40 seasons, and that means visiting more than 1,250 restaurants around the country along the way (via dinersdriveinsandivelocations.com). So it’s safe to say that Guy Fieri has seen — and tasted — it all. And you can taste it all too, if you’ve got a big appetite and you’re willing to do some traveling.”

So, what’s tops in our state? Honey’s Sit ‘N Eat in Philadelphia. Of the spot, Mashed.com writes, “In the middle of bustling downtown Philly, a husband-and-wife duo are making a name for themselves with their quirky, signature, “Southern Jewish” cooking style at Honey’s Sit ‘N Eat. With a menu offering classics like chicken and waffles and biscuits and gravy alongside traditional matzo ball soup and challah French toast, there’s something for everyone here.” They add, “When Guy Fieri rolled through in 2011, they decided to serve him their next-level take on old-school frito pie, two ways — and we were seriously impressed. There was the brisket Frito pie, made with meat cooked for five hours before it’s sliced and pan fried. And one of their former legendary top sellers was a chicken chili Frito pie. It’s no longer a permanent menu fixture, but it seems like they bring it back sometimes, so keep an eye on their Facebook page.” Find the full list here.
