Food Network announces Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives air dates for recent Tucson visit

Remember when Guy Fieri came to Tucson? While trusted sources confirmed it was for his Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, the restaurants weren’t able to share any details.

We asked Food Network for air dates and times of the episodes of Tucson, and they provided this list with notice that all dates and times are subject to change last minute:

  • 9 p.m., Friday, March 2 – “Rollin’ In The Dough”
    On this trip, Guy Fieri is digging into dishes featuring some dynamite dough. In Mesa, Arizona, there is a legit Hawaiian joint serving island specialties, including a meaty bun, and in Tucson, Arizona, he stops at a place cooking up a big-time saucy sandwich and spinach dip calzone. Plus, in Miami, Guy checks out a funky shop making sweet artisan doughnuts and turning their pastries into savory sandwiches.
  • 9 p.m., Friday, March 9 “International Intrigue”
    Guy Fieri is crisscrossing the nation to grab some international grub. In Dallas, there’s a funky Thai joint serving up noodles, curry and green papaya salad. In Miami, he stops at a Latin place dealing in empanadas and a unique plantain sandwich. Plus, in Tucson, Arizona, there’s a killer spot dishing out real-deal Ethiopian favorites.
  • 9 p.m., Friday, March 30 “Lights-Out Latin”
    This trip, Guy Fieri is diving into all kinds of amazing Latin specialties. In Miami, Florida, there’s a husband-and-wife team dishing out primo Peruvian sandwiches. In Wilmington, North Carolina, he visits a funky joint cooking up the flavors of Panama. And in Tucson, Arizona, he visits a funky fresh spin on tacos and carne asada.

While Food Network hasn’t responded to a follow-up request to confirm the restaurant names, the descriptions correlate with the restaurants in our previous article.

Based on the descriptions, it’s safe to say that “Rollin’ In The Dough” will feature Renee’s Organic Oven, “International Intrigue” will feature Zemam’s, and “Lights-Out Latin” will feature Tumerico.

No word yet on the episodes for Fieri’s visits to Chef Alisah’s Restaurant, Inca’s Peruvian Cuisine, and Rocco’s Little Chicago Pizzeria.
