Austin has always been something of a hub for food and entertainment. That being said, it will come as no surprise that many of our restaurants have been featured on various episodes of “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” hosted by the one and only: Guy Fieri. We’re proud here to have 13 Austin restaurants that Guy Fieri has been to, all in just one city! Here they all are for you to go try out, too.
