Rick and Jenn in Cuba for Diners Drive-ins and Dives Rick with new FlavortownUSA T-Shirt Rick and Jenn at Lauer Krauts from Diners Drive-ins and Dives

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

Welcome to our site devoted to our travels to all the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives around the world. My name is Rick & my wife is Jennifer but before we began our journey, she was my girlfriend. Back then, Jennifer turned me onto the show as we started to Tivo it all the time and then we became hooked on the show since I'm a huge foodie and we 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'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.
