About Us

The site started way back in 2008 and continues to be a labor of love for Rick and Jenn who keep it maintained with each new Diners Drive-ins and Dives episode.

Rick & Jenn in 2008

My girlfriend turned me onto the show as we started to Tivo it all the time and then I became hooked on the show since I'm a huge foodie and she loved to travel.

Jenn and I tied the knot earlier this year. After our whirlwind romance and travels around the country, I bet we've spent time visiting at least 50+ Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. We plan on keeping the tradition alive as we keep on traveling the country to see her favorite bands and swing my these place to eat. We look forward to hearing about all of your stories and we'll keep sharing ours.

We enjoy food, travel and fun

We're from Minnesota and have been to most of the joints like Psycho Suzie's Victor's 1959 Cafe, Town Talk Diner (closed) and Donatelle's and plan on hitting up as many as possible down the road. We started our journey in Portland, OR and had breakfast at the Byways Cafe which was awesome. I love the show and decided to build a site devoted to Guy Fieri, the Food Network and that great show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
