Food Network superstar Guy Fieri dives into Houston for surprise visit

HOUSTON, Texas -- The Mayor of Flavortown has made a surprise appearance in the Bayou City.

Superstar chef and TV personality Guy Fieri has been in Houston over the weekend filming at local restaurants for potential inclusion in upcoming episodes of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" - and serving a four-star birthday dinner to a major TV star.

Both a Food Network representative and a member of the production team confirmed Fieri's presence in the city. However, the Food Network rep couldn't say when episodes featuring the Houston restaurants might air or even guarantee the footage would be used in future episodes.
