Review: More Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives by Guy Fieri

More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: Another Drop-Top Culinary Cruise Through America's Finest and Funkiest Joints More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: Another Drop-Top Culinary Cruise Through America's Finest and Funkiest Joints by Guy Fieri

Book Description:
Guy Fieri strikes again with More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, giving you a road map to road food that's earned its culinary citizenship in "Flavortown." Join Guy on a cross-country noshing parade, mapping out the best places you've never heard of—more than fifty establishments off the beaten path. Compete in a (no hands) apple-pie-eating contest at Bobo Drive-In in Topeka, Kansas, dip your taste buds in Sweet Spicy Love sauce at Uncle Lou's Fried Chicken in Memphis, Tennessee, and get a load of the killer four-cheese mac-and-cheese at Gorilla Barbeque in Pacifica, California. Filled with Guy's hilarious voice and rampant enthusiasm for these hidden culinary gems, More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives is the perfect book for lovers of the American food scene and fans of Triple D.

This isn't so much a cookbook as a road trip through some of America's casual eating restaurants. It's a pretty fun read, especially if you're planning to visit any of the cities that are covered in the book. I'm a little disappointed that so many states are not covered, but it's still a fun book. Fans of Guy's show will love this book, just like they loved the first one. I gave a copy to my mom for her birthday in December.

My rating: ★★★★ 4 of 5 stars
