Being born and raised in North Carolina, sometimes you forget just how good the food is. Or maybe you’re like me and you fall into the routine of frequenting your favorite restaurants time and time again versus going out and trying something new. In Raleigh, I never heard much of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives but after reviewing this list, I now know why! Most of the North Carolina restaurants featured on this show are located here in Charlotte or by the beach! Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives is hosted by Guy Fieri on the Food Network and food lovers would probably argue that it is one of Food Network’s better shows. It seems like Guy Fieri really enjoys Charlotte because a lot of the following restaurants are right here in Charlotte, North Carolina!

After going to, I found a list of every single restaurant in North Carolina featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. There are a few that were featured at one point but are no longer open.

These are the ones that are no longer open:

  • Brine & Bottle (Nags Head, NC)
  • Penguin Drive-In (Charlotte, NC)

All I know is that after this list, I’m starving!
