Columbus knows how to make good food, and we’re not the only ones that think so.

Columbus native, and Food Network star, Guy Fieri has eaten his way through our fair city on a couple of occasions. His show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, features different local restaurants who are cooking up specialty dishes in cities across the country.

There are six restaurants here in Columbus that have hosted Fieri in the past couple of years. Here’s where you need to go if you’re hoping to retrace his steps through Flavortown.
