DDD picks up more locations in Connecticut

Film crews for Diners, Drive-ins and Dives were sighted in Manchester, CT (near Hartford) last week and are set to tape at restaurants in and around Bridgeport, CT this week.

So far, the Merritt Canteen, a beloved Bridgeport dive since 1942, has been listed as a potential stop for Guy Fieri and his Food Network show.

Merritt Canteen - website
4355 Main Street
Bridgeport, CT 06606-2308

It appears that the Merritt Canteen will be one of the new "viewers choice" segments, an un-hosted, 4th featured restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Guy Fieri is taping Triple D and "Tailgate Warriors" in New Orleans, LA this week, 9/7/10 through the weekend.

I'll update this post as more information comes in.

Other places Guy has visited in Connecticut for Triple D, taped in the Fall of 2008:
Black Duck Cafe - Go-To Joints
Super Duper Weenie - All Kinds of Fast Food
Wilson's Holy Smoke BBQ - Smokin' BBQ
Valencia Luncheria - Something From Everywhere

The show is scheduled to scour in and around Atlantic City, NJ for Diners, Drive-ins and Dives next week, August 1 - 5, 2010. Dates flexible.

Fan of Merrit Canteen for years but really not DDD worthy. Waste of time.. Go back to the Black Duck in Wesport at least that was not as bad..

OMG! Merritt Canteen is SOOO SOO SOOO OVERRATED! Guy: DON'T waste your time! Of course when you've grown up with Merritt Canteen all of your life, OF COURSE you will think that it's worthy to be featured on a show like DDD LOL! So embarrassing! smh.

We waited in line for over an hour at lunchtime - the staff knew that you weren't coming but let us wait anyway. I won't be going back for a long time, nothing on the menu is that special anyway!
