Grilles, Gourmet Eats and Everything in Between
The Pineville Tavern, Pineville
Located in an 18th century farmhouse, this local spot was featured on the TV show back in 2011 and is still just as popular today. Guy Fieri asked the locals what dish to sample, and it was a unanimous “Snapping Turtle Soup.” While Fieri might have made the Pineville Tavern a nationwide name, you can still order this local delicacy to try for yourself!
Metro Diner, Bensalem
Originally located in Florida, the Metro Diner was a neighborhood hot-spot after Fieri showed the world this “not your average diner.” While scanning the packed room, Fieri saw that the majority of plates had meatloaf on them, out of all the possible diner options available. One bite was all it took, Fieri was hooked. He even went as far as to say that all other diners should be taking notes. Metro Diner had a successful grand opening of its Bucks County location in 2016. The servings are generous and the seats are packed!
