It's broken down into categories and two Pennsylvania restaurants made the Best of the Best Hidden Gems in America list. 

Ohhh, I love a good hidden gem restaurant. I feel like I'm in an exclusive club that not a lot of people know about. Well, until now. Haha.

The first Pennsylvania restaurant that's on the list is Lawrence Park Dinor in Erie.
