‘Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives’ Most Over-the-Top Burgers of All Time
When fans see Fieri try a dish on DDD, that means he likes it. If he really likes it, he’ll take a second bite or even a third — just like he did with this list of the show’s most over-the-top burgers of all time.
‘Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives’ featured the Peanut Butter Burger from Sabores
Fieri visited Sabores in Logan, Utah, where he tried their popular Peanut Butter Burger. You might not think that peanut butter and a burger patty would taste good together. But customers say it’s quite the combination.
The Peanut Butter Burger at Sabores features a homemade chipotle aioli, cheese, bacon, tomato, onions, a generously seasoned beef patty, and — of course — peanut butter.
Yes, it’s a burger made entirely of bacon
Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives featured Dr. Field Goods Kitchen in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which has a handy butcher shop just a few doors down. The owner’s fusion of BLT and burger became the “Bad Ass BLT,” which features a nine-ounce patty made entirely of bacon.
Served with mayo, lettuce, tomato, and freshly baked potato bread made on-site, this burger has a flavor that can’t be beat.
‘Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives’ found one of their most over-the-top burgers in a BBQ joint
The WTF burger from Cochon Volant BBQ Smokehouse in Northern California is topped with prime brisket, brined, smoked pork shoulder, and chipotle-scented pork cake.
The griddled burger also features sautéed onions, cheddar cheese, a combo of mayo and house Carolina barbecue sauce, and house-cured maple bacon. To top it all off, the pork cake is drizzled with chipotle sauce.
The Firehouse Burger is topped with three-pepper hot sauce
When Fieri tried the Firehouse Burger from Lankford Grocery in Houston, Texas, he compared it to “licking the volcano of FlavorTown.”
The Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives host visibly struggled while taking a few bites of this spicy burger that features cayenne-spiked butter and homemade three-pepper hot sauce.
When Fieri tasted the sauce made from serrano, jalapeño, and habanero peppers with vinegar, garlic, onion, radish, and loads of mustard, he said it was so spicy that it might “cook raw chicken.”
The sandwich itself features American cheese, more jalapeños, onion, tomato, and pickle.
One of the most outside-of-the-box burgers on ‘Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives’
When Fieri visited Ethos Bakery & Café in Washington state, he described their burger as a Bentley with “monster truck tires.”
He also called the burger created by former engineer Angela Kora “one of the most outside of the box burgers” he’s ever had on Triple D.
The burger features homemade croissant dough rolled into the shape of a burger bun that’s baked and split. It’s then topped with an eight-ounce burger patty that’s marked on the grill. Then finished in the oven with rosemary-infused butter and topped with cheddar cheese.
The Mac Attack Burger is ‘the dictionary definition of comfort food’
The Boston Burger Company’s Mac Attack Burger is what Fieri calls the “dictionary definition of comfort food.”
The juicy patty is topped with house-made mac and cheese that has a blend of American, cheddar, and jack cheese. The mac is seasoned with parmesan and pecorino, as well as a dash of hot sauce.
They chill the pasta overnight and then grill it to order. While topping each hand-made burger patty with even more cheddar and jack cheese. The Mac Attack is also topped with bacon that’s cooked-to-order.
“I’ve seen ridiculous in the burger world,” Fieri says while praising the burger’s attention to detail. “This might have to be a contender.”
Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives airs Friday nights on The Food Network.
