Dishing on Diners

Mar 21, 2007  •  Post A Comment

Fine food is all well and good, but sometimes you just crave a good old diner.
In “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives,” host Guy Fieri hits the road in a ’67 Camaro convertible in search of dives, greasy spoons and even places where new owners have upgraded their menus for a new generation.
The show launches April 23.
Mr. Fieri, the winner of Food Network’s “The Next Food Network Star 2” and host of “Guy’s Big Bite,” is moving to prime time with the series. He owns four restaurants in Northern California and is the father of two.
“Guy has a larger-than-life personality, and we wanted to give him a show that would allow him to interact with a wide variety of people,” said Bob Tuschman, senior VP, programming and production, Food Network. “We think he will bring out the appreciation for food and Americana that we all have.”
On the show, Mr. Fieri visits eateries such as the Frosted Mug Drive-In, an authentic drive-in outside Chicago with carhops that’s famous for its homemade root beer, and Mo Gridder’s BBQ, a dive in the Bronx that can give your car a tuneup at its auto body shop and feed you slabs of ribs while you wait.

  1. I was first tuned into Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on a trip to Portland for my birthday. I love greasy spoons so we made our way over to the Byways Cafe (yummy yummy). From then I was hooked, we’ve been on a couple trips so far like Utah and Chicago which was awesome! Plan on hitting up a few more soon.

  2. Great post!

  3. Amazing freakin blog here. I almost cried while reading it!

  4. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.. 🙂

  5. Neat blog layout! Very easy on the eyes.. i like the colors you picked out

  6. I am not actually definite if greatest practices contain emerged nearly things like that, but I am definite that your big job is visibly recognized. I was wondering if you offer any subscription to your RSS feeds since I would be extremely concerned.

  7. Assisted me a lot, just what I was looking for : D.

  8. These 3M 8210Plus Particulate masks may appear like they may be unique BIRD FLU masks but really theyre just ordinary 3M Particulate Respirator 8210 N95 masks that you simply could get on the hardware store or elsewere on Amazon for less.
