Food Network’s popular show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” was just seen filming one of their latest episodes at Charlotte’s legendary hot dog restaurant, JJ Red Hots.
Guy Fieri went into the kitchen with owner Jonathan Luther to learn how to make the Kasekrainer, which was the winner at this year’s Sausagefest.
The producers at Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives didn’t release any additional information as to when the episode might air, but based on previous Charlotte filmings, we estimate that the JJ Red Hot episode will air sometime in March or April of 2017.
The popular show, which highlights local restaurant favorites around the country, has already been to Charlotte numerous other times, including stops at; BarBQ King on Wilkinson Boulevard, Cabo Fish Taco in NoDa, Dish in Plaza-Midwood, Jake’s Good Eats on Albemarle Road, Landmark Diner on Central Avenue, Dilworth’s 300 East, and South 21 Drive-in on Independence Boulevard.
No wonder Charlotte was just ranked as the #9 food city in America by Zagat Restaurant.
