Guy Fieri has long been a favorite of Food Network viewers, thanks to what sometimes seems like his round-the-clock appearances as host of “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives,” “Guy’s Grocery Games,” and others. The food celebrity added to his resume with 2022′s “Guy’s All-American Road Trip,” in which Fieri, family and friends traveled through Oregon, Washington and Northern California.
Now, Fieri is back with a second season of “Guy’s All-American Road Trip,” but this one takes the Food Network star and company to another part of the country, for a road trip through Appalachia.
According to the Food Network, Fieri will again by joined by his wife, Lori, his sons Hunter and Ryder, and friends who will hit the road in RVs for a trip “full of wild adventures, family competitions, and some of the best food in Tennessee and Kentucky.”
The four-episode series what the Food Network press material describes as “dynamite dishes, iconic destinations and attractions. From crispy, juicy fried chicken at Dollywood, to Tiki cocktails at Guy’s very own Downtown Flavortown, and to next level BBQ camp-side, the eats are unlike anything they have had before.”
What else to expect? According to the Food Network, “Before they hit the road, they must fuel up with a mouthwatering lunch in Nashville, Tennessee served by some of Guy’s favorite local Triple D spots. Once they get to the campground, the rain doesn’t stop this crew from having a real deal Mexican feast. Then, it’s off to a fun roadside attraction in Bowling Green, Kentucky that takes everyone on a trip back to the Old West. Next up, is Chaney’s Dairy Farm for an over-the-top, family against family, ice cream-making contest. They continue to milk Kentucky for an adrenaline pumping spin around the speedway at NCM Motorsports Park. After some hot laps, they head across the street for a tour of the National Corvette Museum. Plus, there is a real deal pizza showdown back at the campgrounds.”
Other stops include Petros, Tennessee for BBW at a penitentiary, “followed by a tour of the jail by a former inmate.” The trip will also include Pizza Palace in Knoxville, Tennessee; Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for “some next-level nachos, outrageous burgers, one-of-a-kind waffles and a tiki drink oasis at Guy’s very own Downtown Flavortown”; fried chicken and cinnamon bread at Dolly Parton’s amusement park, Dollywood; Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams, in Madisonville, Tennessee; and more.
Season 1 of “Guy’s All-American Road Trip” earned a 2023 Daytime Emmy Award nomination, in the category of Travel, Adventure and Nature Program.
