by in Shows, March 14th, 2014

Guy Fieri in Key WestStart the weekend right with a trip down to Key West in a new Friday-night episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Guy takes in the best of the island, from seafood shacks to taco carts. Then, once you’re well-rested and ready to eat again on Saturday morning, watch all new episodes of The Pioneer Woman and Heartland Table: Ree makes a special meal for her son, and Amy gets the neighborhood together for a horseradish harvest. Later on, The Kitchen co-hosts bring back the classic iceberg wedge salad.

On Sunday morning tune in to Southern at Heart, where Damaris and her friend create the perfect snacks to accompany movie watching. Afterward, Giada cooks up some dishes inspired by L.A. hot spots. And on Sandwich King, Jeff makes pork sandwiches and a sweet version of pigs in a blanket. In the afternoon, watch a new Buy This Restaurant, where Keith helps a couple achieve their dream of restaurant ownership. In the evening watch all-new episodes of Food Court Wars, Cutthroat Kitchen and the Chopped Tournament of Stars, in which four former Rachael vs. Guy competitors make their triumphant return, this time in the Chopped kitchen.

This trip, Guy’s checking out some awesome eats of the island — Key West, Fla., that is — from a funky little shack servin’ up New England-style seafood with Island twists to a husband-and-wife team dishing up standout fish tacos just down the street. And a trip to this eclectic oasis wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the teeny-tiny food cart crankin’ out hundreds of Asian-Caribbean-fusion dishes per day.

    I did send a comment about DJ's Crab Shack in Key West & never did hear a word back, probably because it was not a positive comment – still love DDD & Guy, just thought I would hear something back.
