The Funky Finds in Flavortown: America's Classic Joints and Killer Comfort Food
Guy Fieri

Restaurant owner and Food Network star Fieri takes us on another tour of some of our country’s best local eateries, like Kansas City’s YJ’s Snack Bar and Al’s Breakfast in Minneapolis. Along the way, he serves up comfort food recipes (coconut cream pie, mac and cheese, and meatloaf) from many of his favorite restaurants, and some unusual ones as well (like American Chop Suey from Manchester, New Hampshire's Red Arrow Diner). This tour of off-the-beaten path establishments has enough regional entrees to keep culinary road-trippers busy (and full) for many, many miles! For fans of Jane and Michael Stern's Roadfood.
