Our "Places To Try" List (And Our Favorites Too!)

I asked, on facebook, awhile back about the best (preferably non chain) places to eat in our area.  Most of the responses are already on our favorites list, but we still have a list of places to try.  Several people have since asked me if I compiled a list from the answers I received, so this is my attempt to do so.  It's  work in progress...

  1. Griggs in Montoursville is the other operation of Dolly's Diner in case didn't know. I haven't been there but we have been to Dolly's and rather enjoyed it. If you like Italian I recommend Vincenzo's Italian Cruisine on just off I-180 on Maynard Street in Williamsport.
