Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives Preview
Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, also known as Triple D, is a food-based-reality show that’s been on air, and the road, since 2007 after a one-off pilot that got picked up by Food Network. The show is hosted by Guy Fieri, the famous chef known for talking about ‘flavor town’ and having aggressively blonde-tipped hair and a wacky personality. In the show, Fieri road-trips around the United States and visits restaurants, learning about their food and trying their most popular options. He’ll talk about how great the food is, learn about how the food is prepped, and then he’ll talk to some of the guests at the place. Fieri also hosts Guy’s Grocery Games, a game-show-like food competition where home cooks or chefs have a set amount of time to shop for and make a dish based on random rules.
The show, now in season 28, often features a unifying theme in each episode. One episode might be about burgers and the next could be about seafood. The show has gotten so popular that people often plan road trips around the episodes; Food Network’s website showcases these trips, from where to buy the best wings to where to go to get the best burger.
The newest episode, airing January 10, 2020, is titled “Triple D Nation: A Little Lighter,” and the recipe available on the website is for fried Brussels sprouts with fish sauce caramel. In the episode, Fieri visits Triple D’s first diner, located in Boston, to check out the egg-white omelets they serve. He’ll then head off to a Cuban restaurant in Los Angeles, where he’ll try avocado-stuffed fresh fish and plantains for bread. Lastly, he’ll visit a taco place in Park City, Utah, where he’ll try jackfruit tacos.
The network finds restaurants for the show to visit two ways; the first is by the fan submission form on the Food Network website, where fans can go to suggest a restaurant for the show. The second way they find places to go is by contacting food writers in a city they’re already planning on visiting. The goal is to find some off-the-wall, funky restaurants to feature on the show.
Restaurants often see an increase in business after being featured on Triple D. The producers often tell restaurants to be ready for a 200 percent increase in business.
New episodes of the show air on Fridays at 9 p.m. on Food Network, but there are often marathons of older episodes.
