Blast From the Past (DV0709H)

Season Seven, Episode Nine

Blast From the Past - Original Airdate 10/19/09

Guy Fieri checks out some joints where things are still done the old-fashioned way. In Oklahoma City, a steak house that's been serving the same steaks, desserts and even salad dressing for more than 80 years; In Los Angeles, a 1940s diner brought back to life by a chef doing mac and cheese, fried catfish, and donuts ... her way; And in Boston, three brothers carry on 40-year-old family tradition - making clam chowder like Dad - and chipotle/pastrami sandwiches.

I had breakfast at Cattlemen's Steakhouse and it was just alright:

Nickel Diner

Rough neighborhood at night, but worth the drive downtown. We went for the bacon bits on the maple doughnuts. We found out that they were fresh at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. We were there just after 6 pm and ours were definitely from earlier that morning. These doughnuts are not good if they are not fresh. Having said that, the owner and pastry chef were both nice and I'm looking forward to giving the 5 cent diner another try.
