    The Best

    Sometimes you can find the best food at the mom and pops and this show is so cool because it takes you right to them. I know when we find something in the area we like to give it a try.

    I Love It So Much I.....

    I love this show (or anything to do with food) I wrote both an iPhone and Android app.  It's called Triple D.  If you want to know more about it, let me know.

    How Did That Guy Get This Job?

    Best job in the damn world. I wish I could be him. He gets to eat the best, most unhealthy food in the whole entire world, and just enjoy his life meeting people and driving around. Damn. Watching the anniversary right now. Looks so amazing. I want the hot dogs most of...

    Real Food

    The Wonderful Smell Of Roses

    No I don't mean the flower, I mean Rose's Diner. A quaint little place that was centered in the heart of my Midwestern hometown. I grew up going to Rose's. My mom and 2 sisters would treat ourselves to a "home cooked meal", prepared by Rose herself after church on Sundays. Rose...

    The love of Diners started in high school with the typical Denny's and Village Inn experiences.  You can stay as late as you want and only drink coffee, what is there not to like.  I go on many road trips through the U.S. and there are a surprising amount of diners...

    Some of the Best Places..

    I love stopping during road trips at mom and pop shops or roadside diners.. Often times they have the best atmosphere and food.. You'll never know what you'll walk in and find.. From tons of antique peddle cars adorning the walls or different rooms dedicated to various fifties...

    I Like This Show!

    I watch The Food Network quite often (I'm sort of a wanna-be foodie!) and this is one of the shows I really like. I miss the old-fashioned diner, which you don't see much of anymore. I like to see how they make the food (even though I'm a health nut and couldn't eat 90% of it...

    MMM Mmm Good...

    Some of the best places that I have found across America to eat at were not in the most beautiful buildings in the world.  I love the "Mom 'n Pop" Restaurants and the "Little Red Diners" that are started in small towns throughout America.  If...

    I Love the Aesthetic

     the shiny retro aluminum look. The honest food.  The salty waitresses who've spent their lives on their feet and still have the pride and professionalism to do their job well. When I visited the American Museum of Food they had a photography exhibit featuring Diners...

    That's All She Wrote

    Guy is perfect for the show. He is so passionate about food. If food ever fell on the floor and was stepped on, he’d still eat it.

    The food he features on the show always looks delish and he ain't bad eye-candy either!

    Still A Great Place...

    I rediscovered the drive-in about 10 years ago at the end of a day off. Found the drive in I went to during High School had revamped and now caters to families. I always loved the drive-in. I started taking my family on a regular basis. Still brings a smile to my face...Cars...
