Phamous Phills on Restaurant Divided

jujuthomas | Nov 27, 201307:02 PM

I came across the food network episode of Restaurant Divided that was filmed at Phamous Phils in Collegeville over the summer. Apparently they have been struggling and are not making a profit, in spite of the quality of the barbecue and the sauces. So, they applied to be on RD. Phil's wife Robin thought they should open a chop shop, Phil wanted to continue making his bbq. Rocco let them try out their concepts for a night, providing tips and tricks to improve service. Phil came out as the winner, which made us very happy, as we've always enjoyed his food. The restaurant has been completely redecorated as a result of the show, and they are doing counter service instead of table service. DH and I had been planing a bbq dinner soon, so guess where we're going... they are now selling their sauces in the restaurant, I can't wait to bring some home. :)
