Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives might be returning to Minnesota

Looking for a few more locations in the Twin Cities area - within a 30-minute radius of the airport.

Let me know if you have any suggestions.

  1. Bangkok Thai Deli - St Paul.
    Izzy's - St Paul.

    I'm sure there will be lots of other recommendations but I think the two above would be ideal for the show....local, funky, good food...Triple D style :)

    1. The Triple Rock Social Club.

      It would be pretty painful / hilarious watching Guy try to act cool around the hipsters and punk rockers.

      I do not know how an ice cream place fits into DDD...

        They've had ice cream places on DDD before. I remember a Gelato place in AZ being on one of the episodes...

      2. Plenty of ethnic dive type places...not sure where to start.

        I know this will draw some ire from the crowd, but Mickey's probably fits the bill.

        Brasa would be a great choice.

        I'd like to see what the rest of the 'Hounds think.

        1. What places have already been done?

            Places he's been to, off the top of my head...

            -The Nook
            -Victors 1959 (bit of a head scratcher)
            -The Wienery
            -Psycho Suzi's
            -Modern Cafe
            -Bryant Lake Bowl
            -Town Talk Diner (I think)

            I might be missing a couple.

                Was at Town Talk Diner.

                Has Guy ever had a bite in one of these places that wasn't one of the best bites of whatever he just bit?

                1. re: semanticantics

                  The bites seem to be so good they knock his sunglasses off his face and onto the back of his head!

                  He's been to Emily's Lebanese Delicatessen.
