Home Our Triple D Adventures

One of our favorite shows on the Food Network is Diners, Drive-Inns and Dives (a.k.a. DDD or Triple D) (and still is when we are in RV parks with cable). The host, Guy Fieri, owns a number of restaurants and became a Food Network celebrity in 2006. So part of the trip planning process is consulting the Food Network web site travel map for DDD locations either along the way or at a stopover or even adding a new stopover just for an opportunity to vist a dive. The travel map also show restaurants from other shows. We have on the odd occasion, visited places other than DDD joints.

As of the end of 2012, our list of visits is still short, but getting longer each traveling season:

  • Green Mesquite, Austin TX
  • Magnolia Pancake Haus, San Antonio TX for the Authentic Munchener Apfel Pfannekuchen
  • Dough Pizzeria Napoletana, Austin TX
  • Charlie Parker’s, Springfield IL
  • South Side Soda Shop, Goshen IN
  • Zingerman’s Deli, Ann Arbor MI (not a DDD, Best Thing I ever Ate)
  • Rosie;s Diner, Cedar Springs MI is now closed so couldn’t try it out
  • Texas Pride BBQ

Now Lynn is very particular about where she eats and if she doesn’t like the exterior of the place, I normally would not have a hope in hell of getting her inside. The great thing about some DDD places is that they may look like real dives, but they are Guy approved, you know that the food is going to be good.

As our adventure continues, we hope to visit more dives during future travel seasons.
