Best Philly Diner
After much debate there is no question that Penrose Diner is the best diner in Philadelphia. An incredible amount of votes for Penrose came in from our fans. Chris and Andrew agree that Penrose Diner is legit. If you enjoy a great diner experience, go to Penrose if you live in Philly.
Honorable mention outside of the city would be Minella’s Diner in Wayne, PA. Only worth the trek if you live in Delco; however, if you live out that way don’t travel to Philly. That goes for anyone that lives in New Jersey too. NJ is the capitol of diners, so no need to cross the Ben Franklin.
