Well, I don't really like him or his show either but we do like eating at diners, drive ins, dives, hole in the wall kind places ... so we put up with him ... sigh ... so whatever he did to make you angry, I am not surprised. I wouldn't mind if the show got a new host (or hostess) anyone who doesn't speak with their mouths full.

Right on, Mar & Bernie. I love this show, and I love the fact that it spotlights these neighborhood places the locals have come to love. I almost canned this entire project, but thought better of it when I came to the conclusion that the host isn't the show - the places are the show!

Safe travels and happy dining!

The Standard Diner was the best burger of my life!
