On The Road - TVFoodMaps: Great App for Traveling!

One of the few Food Network Shows my husband and I can agree on is Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  It's about food (always a plus for me) but it's all manly and full of burgers which is definitely a plus for him.  This, combined with the fact that it's on back to back to back during during our prime bedtime TV  togetherness hours, makes it a show which bonds us.

Just in time for our cross country move and road trip, our friend, Keith, introduced us to this great Food App:  TVFoodMaps.  If you don't have a smartphone, you can also find it online at To use the app, all you need to do is type in a city or state, and it will list all the restaurants that have been featured on TV shows, such as Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!

We found this awesome little Greek Restaurant in Nashville!  It was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  I think I would classify it under the Dive category, which is why it made a great stop for a family traveling with four kids and a dog!

They were even nice enough to bring him fresh water!

Of course, we had to order everything that Guy ate.  Here's the Kotopita.  It's basically a chicken pot pie on steroids wrapped in phyllo dough.  Delicious.

Here's the Suzukakia.  Greek Style oven baked beef meatballs with grated onion and garlic and topped with a light tomato sauce.  I'm pretty sure I tasted nutmeg.

And, of course, what DDD episode would be complete without a giant burger?  Samuel ordered this Guy approved bacon-wrapped lamb burger just to make his sister mad.  She doesn't eat any food that could potentially become a pet.  She's obsessive that way.

Only 16 more hours of driving to go!  Sure am glad we fueled up!
