One Of My Favorite Shows To Binge Watch Is "Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives" Because It Gives You Great Ideas On Restaurants To Try When You're Visiting Another City. Unfortunately several spots they've featured from Austin, TX, to Dallas, TX, and Houston, TX, too, have been closed down.
I've actually dined at a few of the spots that are located in Texas that have been featured on the popular "Food Network" show including "Casino El Camino" in Austin which is considered one of the BEST BURGERS you will try in the state.
Which Reminds Me, Next Time I'm In Austin, I'll Have To Give You A "Best Damn Thing I Ate In Texas" Review Because They REALLY DO MAKE Awesome Burgers.
Of course being featured on a big show like this will lead to folks running to try your food but as you already may know, the restaurant business is one of the most VOLATILE businesses you can get into. One minute you're up, the next you're down even if you've been featured on National Television.
81 Texas Restaurants Have Been Featured On The Show.
With a state as huge as ours, you know Guy has been to tons of spots throughout the state but he mostly visited the "major" cities: Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and El Paso. While the show put lots of restaurants on the map, some spots didn't survive the pandemic or just closed their doors for whatever reason, that's what we're going to take a look at in this article.
Just in case you watch a "re-run" that features a restaurant that's no longer there, consider this article a helpful reminder that if you plan on taking a road trip to any of the DDD spots, you'll find out that these 10 restaurants aren't there anymore.
