You might have heard the buzz a few weeks ago that the bleached-blond Mayor of Flavortown was in our fair city, visiting some of our favorite local spots.

Guy Fieri's crew was, in fact, here to film several episodes of the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives — also known as "Triple D" to fans.

Here's a rundown of when you can see Orlando's eateries on the show:

9 p.m. Friday, April 21
Theme: "Wonder Women"
Restaurants: Se7en Bites, The Meatball Stoppe

9 p.m. Friday, April 28
Theme: Multicultural Cooking
Restaurants: Willie's Pinchos, The Pastrami Project

9 p.m. Friday, May 12
Theme: "Turkey, Taters and Dogs"
Restaurant: Mrs. Potato

9 p.m. Friday, May 26
Theme: "Burgers, Beef and Barbecue"
Restaurant: Saigon Noodle & Grill

Fieri has had his hand in Orlando's dining scene for a while. His over-the-top milkshakes and gut-busting burgers can be found on the menu at the new Planet Hollywood Observatory at Disney Springs, where he designed the new burger and sandwich menu.
