Guy Fieri was in Memphis last week visiting a handful of the city’s budding eateries for his Food Network show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
The show features Fieri traveling the country in his red 1967 Chevy Camaro convertible for classic “greasy spoon” restaurants, bars and roadside shacks based on viewer suggestions.
“Wrappin up a great DDD shoot in Memphis and stayed at the awesome @PeabodyMemphis, wait’ll you guys see these joints!” @GuyFieri tweeted Tuesday, May 8.
Fieri filmed tutorials of how to make best-selling menu items with the chefs of Elegant Farmer, Rizzo’s Diner, Three Angels Diner and South of Beale in Memphis and Memphis BBQ Co. and Memphis Street Café in Mississippi. All six restaurants have opened within the past few years.
The show(s) will air later this summer. Other restaurants Fieri has spotlighted on his show in the past include The Little Tea Shop, Uncle Lou’s Fried Chicken, Alcenia’s and Tom’s BBQ.
