How Many Times Has A New Jersey Restaurant Been On “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives”
Guy Fieri must love visiting the Garden State. Moreover, it seems New Jersey is full of flavor town favorites given Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and Fieri has visited 36 different restaurants here.
If you really want to go down a rabbit hole of flavor, FlavorTownUSA has a breakdown of all the restaurants that have been on triple D. Furthermore, it breaks it down by state. This shows the number of restaurants that have been tapped by Fieri to be on this popular show. California, Florida, Hawaii, Colorado, and Minnesota round out the top five states that have been showcased here on the Food Network.
Believe it or not, Diners, Drive-In, and Dives is now in its 38th season. In fact, we are currently halfway through season 38, which is currently airing new episodes. It will run through February 2024. Although no New Jersey restaurants have been on yet this year, season 35 was full of Jersey stops. Southern Jersey saw Fieri stop in for DDD upon returning from the pandemic take-out format.
More New Jersey Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives History
The first restaurant to be visited by Diners, Drive-In, and Dives was actually the 11th episode of the show, over 1,000 miles north of Florida. This was the Bayway Diner in Linden, New Jersey. The intriguing story behind this first stop was covered in detail by Mashed back in 2021.
If there is a New Jersey restaurant that is the epitome of what the Food Network and Fieri have looked for in this successful show, it’s White Manna Hamburgers in Hackensack. It’s an old-fashioned, diner-style joint with family history. In addition, they cook up one particular specialty (small, slider-type burgers). White Manna Hamburgers was visited and featured on the show back in 2008 during season two.
Rinconcito Salvadoreño in Port Chester, New York is the latest tri-state area restaurant to be on the show (September 2023).
