All the Guy Fieri 'Triple D' restaurants within driving distance of Orlando

Orlando is far from just chain restaurants and places built to rob tourists. Roadside gourmand Guy Fieri knows this for a fact and he's paid plenty of visits to the City Beautiful and surrounding areas to show off some of our best holes in the wall, greasy spoons and food trucks.

Munch’s Restaurant & Sundries  
3920 6th Street South, St. Petersburg
|  (863) 984-1918
This St. Pete diner has held on just fine without Fieri’s peroxide-scented endorsement. It’s been serving breakfast to hungry Tampa Bay residents for more than 60 years. Still, a shout out on the Food Network is never bad for business.

Fat Ones  
Varies |  1-844-4FATONE
It’s rare that Guy Fieri goes to a place with a star chef. And Orlando’s own Fat Ones has a star chef in the truck (of a sort). The hotdog stand is the brainchild of Joey Fatone of N*Sync.

Tampa Bay Brewing Company  
1600 East 8th Ave, Tampa
|  (813) 247-1422 
Fieri doesn’t seem to be taken by trends, favoring the well-worn and time-tested to the flashy and new. The restaurants that appear on Triple D lean toward meat and potatoes. And it doesn’t come much more meat and potatoes than this Tampa stalwart, offering up interesting beers with rib-sticking meals since 1995.

Taco Bus  
1821 State Road 559, Polk City |  (863) 984-1918
Taco Bus has suffered a hit to its reputation, after many people felt the quality declined when the chain began to spread as far as Orlando. The original location in Tampa featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and, following the closing of its Orlando location, the closest outpost is now in Polk City.
