1 Alabama: Panini Pete’s
The team at Panini Pete’s whips up outstanding sandwiches and homemade beignets from a quaint ranch-style building in Fairhope, Alabama. Dishes like the Italian caprese panini with homemade mozzarella have made this eatery a must-visit in Alabama. If you don’t trust us, take it from Guy Fieri, who gave the turkey panini his stamp of approval on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

2 Alaska: Pucker Wilson’s
There are a couple of Guy Fieri-approved restaurants in Alaska, but Pucker Wilson’s is a standout spot. While the food truck is known for its mouthwatering burgers and barbecue, it was the Cowboy Sundae (A.K.A. pulled pork loaded fries) that caught people’s attention on the Food Network show. Pucker Wilson’s is open year-round and always has a hoard of hungry customers—even in the dead of winter.

3 Arizona: Matt’s Big Breakfast
Even after expanding to a bigger space and two new locations, Matt’s Big Breakfast maintains the old-school diner feel that made it a hit with Guy Fieri. Whether you’re in the mood for some fluffy Belgian waffles, homemade biscuits and gravy, or spicy huevos rancheros—all of which were featured on the episode—there’s truly something for everyone
