So, you'll see a lot of these sprouted up in the south attached to gas stations along the highway.
And you're going to get what you'll expect: greasy eggs, a waitress missing some teeth, and some dingy silverware.
But that's why I like it...the experience. I also go for the cheap strawberry waffles. I believe it's $3.
There's several D&B's across the country, but they certainly aren't everywhere.
D&B is like a Jillian's or an "adult Chuck E. Cheese." You can get dinner and drinks here, but you can always hang out at the arcade or go bowling.
Lots of fun when you feel like being a kid.
Mud Island is a pretty cool trip to take with the fam or some kids.
For adults, you can learn about the river and its geographical changes. Plus, you can catch up on some history about the peoples who used to surround the river.
The admission is free unless you want to get in on the museum and some monorail trips.
Also a pretty cool venue for concerts or special events.
Obviously, you should visit if you're in Phila. It's packed full of history and there's plenty to read.
However, my experience was ruined by some very rude security guards.
I was in line to see the bell and I was behind a dozen Japanese tourists. The guards were instructing these folks to remove their bags from their shoulders so they could check them at the security point. Of course, there was a bit of a language barrier.
Eventually, there were some jerks yelling at confused tourists and then mocking their language.
I spoke up, but nobody seemed to care that that was very rude.
I'd go back...but just for the chance to stand up again for our foreign visitors.
The Brooks is a very lovely place to spend an afternoon looking at art. As with any gallery, exhibitions are cycling through all the time. I don't recall the free day, but there is one every month, so I'd give the Brooks a call to see when.
This place is also a really great venue for banquets and receptions.
The PMOA is enormous. If you go in here without a map, you're going to be asking people for directions. You'll be asking directions even if you HAVE map.
Nonetheless, the museum has numerous branches, so there's something for everyone to view when you go here.
Plus, come out the West entrance, and you can do your best Rocky impersonation.
Be sure to visit if you ever come to the city of brotherly love.
The Pink Palace is a good place to visit for adults and kids. There's always a new exhibit circling through, and they also feature an IMAX theater.
Just be weary on weekdays. It's a popular destination for elementary school field trips. In fact, I've had a few field trips here when I was a kid, and they were always great!
The Civil Rights Museum has a lot of history, obviously because the museum is constructed around the hotel at which Dr. King was shot.
The museum has a lot of wonderfully explained exhibits, and it's a good place to bring the family. Inquire about the free day. I don't recall the day, but they have one, as well.
Coletta's is a long-standing tradition in M-town. You can always find them with a stand at Tiger football games at the Liberty Bowl.
But their restaurant is quite nice, and their food is delicious.
This is also a great place to take big groups.
Dino's is a nice little hole in the wall where you can grab a casual Italian lunch or dinner. I think they may now be open for breakfast, as well.
But they serve your standard Italian dishes, but it has an American taste to them.
Service is always very friendly, and meals there are cheap.
