Fans of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives have had to wait a few weeks for a new episode. The waiting ends Monday night.
Staff Writer John Burgeson of the Connecticut Post reports that the "Super Duper Weenie, the hot dog emporium at 306 Black Rock Turnpike, gets to sizzle in the national spotlight Monday when it's featured on 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,' a program on the Food Network."
Guy Fieri is "just like he is on the show," John Pellegrino Jr., one of the owners of Super Duper, said about the program's host, Guy Fieri. "He comes in and asks a ton of questions; he's really into it."
Pellegrino said the program was taped over three days last October. Fieri spent the entire day at Super Duper Weenie on the last day of production, he said.
The Super Duper Weenie owners initially met Fieri last summer while catering a house party in Greenwich, which is one of their other lines of business. "Guy was cooking on the truck with us and everything," Pellegrino said. "He even signed our truck."
