Back in 2011, The Food Network's hit show, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, came to Vancouver, BC. A restaurant reality show hosted by Guy Fieri, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives travelled across North America highlighting the best diners, drive-ins and dives in the United States. Before arriving in Vancouver, the show had never before visited Canada!
Diners, Drive-ins and Dives came to Vancouver in August 2011 to shoot local restaurants for the show. Which Vancouver restaurants made the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives list? Find out below, and then visit these fabulous diners yourself!
