Where Have I Been?

For many years now I have grown to love Guy Fieri, and his famous food show, Diners, Drive - Ins, and Dives. I have been to many of the restaurants he has featured on his show.  However, I was just informed that if you visit 100 of the restaurants featured on his show and take a picture with the restaurant and food he will feature you on his show.  As I am always watching his show I just saw an episode where he featured this couple who had visited 100 of the restaurants, and had scrapbooks to prove it!  I was like, whaaaaaaaa?!?!  I should've been keeping track of all the restaurants I have visited.  Granted, I kind of have, but not like this couple.  So, because of all the social media hoopla, and the fact that I like to blog, I decided, why don't I do a blog dedicated to Guy Fieri and all the Triple D restaurants I visit.  Duh!

But, just to be clear, I have already visited quite a few, and I wanted to document the ones I have already been to.  So, from here on out I will start documenting my visits to Triple D restaurants.  Let the eating begin (again).

Where have I been thus far? (In no particular order.)

  1. Big & little's (Chicago)
  2. Glenn's Diner & Seafood House (Chicago)
  3. Taste of Peru (Chicago)
  4. Irazu Costa Rican Restaurant (Chicago)
  5. Smoque BBQ (Chicago)
  6. White Palace Grill (Chicago)
  7. Paradise Pup (Chicago)
  8. Northern Waters Smokehaus (Duluth)
  9. Early Bird Diner (Charleston)
  10. The Glass Onion (Charleston)
  11. Yankee Lobster (Boston)
  12. Sam LaGrassa's (Boston)
  13. Italian Express Pizzeria (Boston)
  14. Magnolia Cafe (Austin)
  15. Zia Diner (Santa Fe)
  16. Brandy's Restaurant & Bakery (Flagstaff)
  17. BANG! (Denver)
  18. Tocabe - An American Indian Eatery (Denver)
  19. Foolish Craig's Cafe (Boulder)
  20. Burger Bar (Roy)
  21. Red Iguana (Salt Lake City)
  22. Maxwell's East Coast Eatery (Salt Lake City)
  23. Moochie's Meatballs (Salt Lake City)
  24. Oh Mai (Salt Lake City)
  25. Tin Roof Grill (Sandy)
  26. Voula's Offshore Cafe (Seattle)  
  27. Fisherman's Market (Eugene)
  28. North End Caffe (Manhattan Beach)
Holy Cow!!!  I had no idea I had been to so many.  I have only documented about a handful of those restaurants I have been to. There is no time like the present, guess I will start now.  And, since I live in Chicago I do have a little bit of an advantage. I think Guy likes Chicago...there are 26 restaurants right in Chicago and surrounding area, and I have been to seven of them already.  I am not appalled to going to them again.  It's all for fifteen minutes of fame, so why not.  

Join me on my journey of visiting 100 Diners, Drive - Ins, and Dives.
