Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives coming to Edmonton

My friend Martok suggested I watch today's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives marathon on the Food network.

He's asked the question before, and perhaps the greater population should be asking it, is if the show ever came to Edmonton (the title of this post aside, its not), which places would be ideal candidates for the show?

Dadeos is the first name that comes to mind: their creole cooking far north of the 49th parallel [for that matter, north of the 53rd parallel -ed] would certainly qualify them in the 'funky greasy spoon' category.

Barb & Ernie's is the other place that came to mind, partly since we were sitting in it at the time of holding the conversation. The style and the stories, moreso than the food, would be what caught the shows attention. Of course, if they enjoyed the Bratwurst Benedict....

So what else? Martok suggested Tasty Tom's, though I remain unconvinced. Blue Plate Diner or 9th Street Bistro are options too, I suppose.

What do you think, Edmonton? Where would you send Guy Fieri?
