6 Wilmington Restaurants Featured On Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives

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.

If Guy visits a restaurant, it’s a must try!  As he calls it, he’s taking you to Flavor Town with each one of his stops.

Wilmington has recently been called a location for foodies, and we have so many restaurants now receiving national recognition.  Some for their sweet treats and best wings, burgers or fries.  Hotel DuPont was even listed as one of the best hotels in the United States for their food.  That’s huge!

Have you tried any of these places Guy Fieri went to on his popular Food Network show? The Mayor of Flavor Town would never send us to a spot that wasn’t worthy of our time.

Check out these 6 Wilmington restaurants featured on ‘Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives’ over it’s more than 30 seasons.
