Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives – BBQ Joints Featured – Video

You’ve got to hand it to Guy Fieri. Not many people could parlay winning The Next Food Network Star into a budding empire. Just head over to his online store and you’ll be amazed at what he’s selling. The choice that really made Guy Fieri the powerhouse that he is, is the show Diner’s Drive-ins, and Dives. This highlighted his ability to interact with restauranteurs and put their restaurant ahead of himself. What’s most interesting is that he’s touched a nerve with all food lovers (from young to old) who get hooked by the show (and subsequent re-runs of this show), then they make the proverbial trip to try what Guy has gushed over.

  1. It makes sense, but I wouldn’t have guessed this many. My favorite of the group is Martin’s but that’s only because I’ve been there many times.
