If you want it, we got it. From home cooking to national chains, Wilkes-Barre and the surrounding areas have a great selection of dining. There are corner delis and hotdog joints, and everything in between, all the way to fine dining. Most of the dining establishments chain-wise have only opened within the past few years, making us wonder where we used to eat. Chains aside, though, Wilkes-Barre is home to some wonderful family-owned eateries, which sheds some light on the previous question of where we ate before the chains came to town. The restaurant section of the Yellow Pages is twelve pages of
a six-point font listing-meaning that there are hundreds
of choices.

Simply put, finding something that you like to eat is something that can be done at any time of day, and it's perhaps one of the best things about Wilkes-Barre. The best advice would be to break away from those chains to try the local stuff. You won't be disappointed.
