Why You'll Probably Never See These 2 Foods On Diners, Drive-Ins And Dives

After 34 seasons, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" host Guy Fieri has practically seen — and eaten — it all. The famous chef has chowed down on everything from pig's feet at a local Hawaiian eatery to oxtail and curry goat in Houston, with plenty of pizza and pierogies in between (via Food Network).

Believe it or not, Fieri actually hand-picks each restaurant stop and its corresponding menu item each time the cast and crew hits the road, according to a 2019 report by People. The whole process takes about two months and is meant to ensure that Fieri is only reviewing the best of the best — at least, according to the chef's standards. With a lengthy career and plenty of taste tests under his belt, Fieri's a little bit high-maintenance when it comes to planning and filming a new episode; no one's road tripping for the everyday meals you can make at home, after all.

Despite the incredible amount of time it takes to select the star dishes of the show, Fieri isn't all that picky himself when it comes to food. There are just two things that you'll never see on his plate. One's a classic American favorite that might just have you skipping the next episode in protest, and the other is a controversial ingredient that many fans will be glad to never see featured. Just remember: If you won't see it on Fieri's dish, then you certainly won't see it on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" — "Triple D."

Don't ask Guy Fieri to try liver

In an interview with People, "Triple D" executive producer Frank Matson explains that one of the main factors that goes into deciding where and what to eat is just how different it is. "Guy will spot a unique ingredient ... that's different and chooses that," Matson shared with the publication.

While being unique is a major selling point for a dish, that doesn't always guarantee it'll make its way on air — at least, not when it's Fieri's least favorite food. The chef revealed that one thing you'll never catch him chowing down on, whether it's on the "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" set or at any regular dinner, is liver. "Liver is nasty," the chef blatantly proclaimed.

The disdain for liver is nothing new, which is likely why it hasn't popped up after years of filming. Fieri has repeatedly and publicly hated on liver in the public eye and on social media — in a 2010 interview, he related that when it comes to eating animals, he sticks to muscles and fats. The "parts that are licked, make sound, push, filter, walk and so on are not for me," since he doesn't "appreciate the parts of the animal that had a job" (via SimpleMost). Sounds pretty fair to us!

Eggs are a no-go for Fieri

The other food that viewers will likely never see on "Triple D" may ruffle some feathers (pun intended). Chances are, you'll never catch Fieri enjoying an old school egg breakfast. While he'll eat them or utilize them in a recipe now and again, they're far from a favorite. The chef once told the Tampa Bay Times about his egg aversion, saying that "Hard-boiled and scrambled — that's just not the way I like to party."

If you're scratching your head wondering how an esteemed chef could hate eggs — well, that's as fair as Fieri shooting down liver. The "Triple D" host once told MyRecipes that he started feeling a bit iffy on the traditional breakfast food as a kid, when he opened a chicken egg and saw far more than he bargained for. Bacon and egg sandwiches weren't immediately off the table, though, and Fieri persevered in trying the beloved breakfast staple — at least, until he encountered a particularly chalky yolk. That sealed the deal.

Despite being an incredibly popular diner food, Fieri just flat out hates eggs. Many of the joints he's ventured to over the years offer the classic morning meal, be it as a benedict, omelette, or just plain fried, but Fieri won't be ordering the combo breakfast anytime soon. Instead, he opts for sweet treats like a pancake roll or drunken french toast — significantly unique, and minimal egg involved.
