I used to respect Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. They found and featured a lot of cool restaurants and I always assumed that they did their best to find the best places possible. Until today.
They went to my hometown of Farfield, Connecticut to visit a "famous" hot dog joint. Now anyone who knows Fairfield food would have told you that they must be going to Rawley's. Rawley's is the oldest and BEST hot dog place in the town. Hands down. No question. The chili is to die for and cannot be beat. So you assume host Guy Fieri would roll in and eat there. Right?
He ends up at Super Duper Weenie, which is known as probably the second worst hot dog joint in the entire state. Ridiculous. Unbelievable. If they're gonna recommend a place like SDW, I now have lost all respect for the show.
Yes, on the upside, it will keep more tourists away from Rawley's. But it's a blow to my foodie pride that Fairfield finally makes the show and they don't spotlight the best the town has to offer.
