Food Network star Guy Fieri takes you on a tour of America's most colorful diners, drive-ins, and dives in this tie-in to his enormously popular television show, complete with recipes, photos, and memorabilia.

Packed with Guy's iconic personality, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives follows his hot-rod trips around the country, mapping out the best places most of us have never heard of. From digging in at legendary burger joint the Squeeze Inn in Sacramento, California, baking Peanut Pie from Virginia Diner in Wakefield, Virginia, or kicking back with Pete's "Rubbed and Almost Fried" Turkey Sandwich from Panini Pete's in Fairhope, Alabama, Guy showcases the amazing personalities, fascinating stories, and outrageously good food offered by these American treasures.

I love this guy's show on the Food Network. He finds little, independently owned eateries across the country and revels in the food these places are serving. Don't look for vegan health food here. We're talking about peanut pir, "Rubbed & Almost Fried" turkey sanwich and "The Chorizo Garbage Plate" here. If this book doesn't make you want to jump into your car, hit the road & start eating, nothing will.read more

If you buy this for recipes, you'll likely be disappointed. However, it is a wonderful read and great background if you are a fan of the show. I now have a list of places to target and I'm ready to jump in the car and go!read more

Not a great cookbook, since the recipes are designed for large quantities (mostly) from restaurants, and are sometimes incomplete, but its a great companion to the show, and a tribute to small, independent American restaurants.

This book worth the price of purchase simply for the description of the diners, drive-ins, and dives. Yes, I really would have liked more recipes, and I really would have liked a couple of pages on every one of the places that were on the show even if they didn’t get a recipes from them, but it did come with the Cap’n Crunch French Toast recipe and it does have Al’s Diner (which is just down the street from where I work) and Psycho Susie’s, which is close to home. My siblings have been telling me about this place called Chino Bandido for years and here it is!We just LOVE Guy Fieri, he has great energy and isn’t afraid of taking a big bite and getting food al over. And it looks like he is having fun!
