As you may know, we are right in the thick of another season (38, to be exact) of the Food Network’s hit show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives starring beloved celebrity chef, Guy Fieri. It's again that time of year when we wait with bated breath to see if one of our local favorites will be highlighted across the entire nation.

The show has done a fantastic job over the last 16 years to highlight local gems throughout the country. In fact, the show’s popularity has translated into incredible upticks in business for multiple small restaurants throughout the country. The Fieri effect is real.

As it would turn out, Colorado is one of Guy Fieri’s favorite places to visit for the show. He’s been here 44 times over the years, which puts Colorado in fourth place. He has mostly been to spots in Denver for Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, which longtime viewers of the show affectionately nicknamed 'Triple D'. However, he's also made stops in Fort Collins, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Aurora, Longmont, Wheat Ridge, Brighton, and Aspen.

Instead of just taking a trip down memory lane, we wanted to give Guy Fieri some recommendations on some of the best places in Colorado he hasn’t checked out yet.
