Pennsylvania Diners & Other Roadside Restaurants is a 1993 documentary created by Rick Sebak.[1] The program originated in a 1992 item in The Pennsylvania Road Show about Lee's Diner. It was to be called "Pennsylvania Diners" but added "Other Roadside Restaurants" to cover other establishments than diners. When it was released on DVD in 2006, additional stories not seen nationally were included.
