The Cove
606 West Cypress St., (210) 227-2683, thecove.us
Guy Fieri first visited The Cove during season four of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives for the “Totally Unexpected” episode.

La Panadería
301 East Houston St., (210) 592-6264, lapanaderia.com
Back in summer 2017, Guy Fieri stopped by the then-brand new La Panadería in the heart of downtown. The season 27 Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives episode titled “A Passport of Flavor” looked at the authentic bakery that serves up real-deal sourdough just like in old school Mexico City. Guy also made the bakery’s best-selling item, the tequila almond croissants.

Two Bros. BBQ Market
12656 West Avenue, (210) 496-0222, twobrosbbqmarket.com
It’s safe to say that all of Chef Jason Dady’s restaurants got national attention when he appeared on Top Chef: Texas in 2011 and Iron Chef Gauntlet in 2017. Dady’s cherry-glazed baby back ribs have especially gotten attention as they’ve been featured on the Food Network’s site, too.

Los Barrios
4223 Blanco Road, (210) 732-6017, losbarriosrestaurant.com
Los Barrios has gotten plenty of Food Network attention thanks to celebrity chef Bobby Flay. On the second episode of FoodNation with Bobby Flay, he visited restaurants across the Alamo City, some of which have since closed. At Los Barrios, Flay cooked with chef/owner Diana Barrios-Treviño and prepared a “Tex-Mex Fiesta.” On the “Puffy Tacos” episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay, he learned all about puffy tacos as Los Barrios is famous for its shredded chicken taco. Flay ended up losing to the San Antonio chef because he didn’t use fresh masa.
