Have you ever watched Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food Network? Guy Fieri has been all over the world, including right here in South Carolina on the show! The show shows Guy Fieri traveling around the country trying out different restaurants in different cities. A mixture of the best diners, drive-ins, and dives in small and large cities in the area. Some local restaurants have been granted the stamp of approval from the Food Network show!

Many restaurants after they get the Guy Fieri stamp of approval on the show, business starts to boom! We have seen some of these chefs continue on from this show to Guy’s Grocery Games, Tournament of Champions, and other Food Network shows. It’s the perfect opportunity for any restaurant.

We were able to find all of the South Carolina restaurants that were ever featured on the show by going to flavortownusa.com. Unfortunately, not all of the restaurants that have been featured on the show made it to today.

The below restaurants have been closed since their episode airing:

  • Dixie Supply Bakery and Cafe (Charleston, SC)
  • Farmer’s Shed (Lexington, SC)

So, we went and put together this list of all of the restaurants that appeared on the show. This is your chance to check it out and see which spots you want to give a try in South Carolina.
