Guy Fieri filming in allston

just spotted filming outside of the Deep Elum/Lone Star Taco Bar - doing exterior shots with the red convertible ... not sure which place he was working in.

        1. There's no shame in getting cited on DD&D: as awful as Poochie's shtick is, he does routinely uncover very good places. Getting caught dining in one of *his* restaurants, on the other hand...

            Agreed, but why the eff does he feel the need to sign the walls of the places? His 'graffiti' (serious emphasis on those scare-quotes) mural over the door of Tupelo is a damned eyesore.

            (Edit: Agreeing with Slim's original post, not with the claims of jealousy. Because... no. No no no.)

              I like DD&D, but I was at the Greek Corner the other day and there was a signed photo on the wall! Doe's he have that much cache?

                Judging from what happened to Rino's (and others), there's no doubt that Fieri has the power to move enormous crowds to the restaurants he covers.

                  plenty of places that he reviews have met their maker soon after. He can bring in crowds, but the restaurants need to satisfy them.

                    Agree, I went to a place in in CA, it used to do a good business and has great food, now the Fee Eddy has spray painted his graffiti on a wall in the restaurant it's been it a total zoo.

                I agree that he visits some good places. I just wish he would swallow his mouthfuls before regurgitating his slogans ("That's money," "That's on-point," and "That's off the hook"). And maybe he should clean the grease and clumps of cheese off of his face before confronting the camera.

                  Don't forget when he whistles as the owner of the establishment begins to assemble a sandwich. WOW!

                  1. re: treb

                    Yeah, the out-of-context whistling is his latest tic. What's whistle-worthy about onions tossed in a pot or pickles placed on a cheeseburger?

                2. I'll get the 55-gallon drums of Purell, someone else find some sage to burn for the ceremonial cleansing.
