About Philly Grub

pg-adFounded and curated by food and drink enthusiast and former nightclub DJ Marilyn Johnson in 2008, Philly Grub is a Philadelphia food news, reviews, and scene blog showcasing all that is good about eating and drinking in Philadelphia and South Jersey. It is one of Philadelphia’s longest-running blogs.

Philly Grub shines a bright spotlight on the amazing food and drink to be found in the Delaware Valley and sometimes beyond. We promise no clickbait here, just honest reporting; though you may see a side of occasional wisecracking and witty banter.

Philly Grub shares Philadelphia area restaurant news, events and occasionally some reviews. You might also see reviews of food products from local food entrepreneurs or other local food-based stories. From fine dining to fast food, if it has to do with food in the Philadelphia area, we’re on it.
