Guy Fieri, host of Food Network’s ‘Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives’ has been to Wilmington restaurants on several occasions.

Fieri travels the country visiting unique and locally owned mom and pop restaurants, typically recommended by the show’s viewers.  While at each stop, he spends time with the local owners, tastes their signature dishes and takes viewers through a step by step process of how the dishes are made with the local chef.
