Joe’s Farm Grill in Arizona and The Always Fun Guy Fieri

Those not familiar with the show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives need to realize one thing about this Food Network staple: You're missing out.

There was a stretch of time when it seemed that late at night, when nothing was on TV and we weren't quite ready for bed, the always fun Guy Fieri with his spiky, bleached blond hair and trademark sunglasses perched backwards on his head greeted us from the comfort of his convertible.
