As Seen on TV

by Mike Hunter

Do lunch where the experts say it’s the best. Below are our picks for a top lunch as seen on TV’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” Unique dishes, the best taste and some darn good cooking is why these three hot spots were chosen to appear. We quote what the website says Guy Fieri discovered.

DeFalco

DeFalco’s Italian Eatery, Grocery & Deli

DeFalco’s Italian Eatery, Grocery & Deli

“At DeFalco’s in Scottsdale, Ariz., the Italian sausage is made with a nearly century-old family recipe that has brought in locals for decades. The Centurion calzone truly is a meal fit for a warrior, with two layers of mozzarella and sliced sopressatta — Guy said it rivals most NYC delis.”

2334 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale

La Piazza Al Forno

“A father-son operation, the duo churns out delicious pizzas and Italian favorites. Guy couldn’t keep his hands off of the Italian Stallion, a pizza loaded with sopressata, Parma prosciutto, Italian sausage, and pepperoni. Still hungry? Try the baked spaghetti pie topped with fresh mozzarella.”

5803 W Glendale Ave., Glendale
(623) 847-3301

 

St. Francis

“Chef Aaron Chamberlin likes to cook everything over an open fire just like when he was a Boy Scout. Guy adored the smoky and creamy Pig Dip filled with pork, prosciutto and fennel onion marmalade. The rustic Iron Skillet Pancake with berry compote and the Moroccan meatballs also impressed.”
