Guy Fieri made his way back to the Garden State and this time he brought flavortown to a hot spot in Monmouth County.

It has been announced that the host of Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives has filmed an episode at The Chubby Pickle located in Highlands. New Jersey which is set to air later this month.

The established sports bar and grill that first opened its doors in 2012 has a menu and events calendar for the entire family to enjoy. The Chubby Pickle shared their incredible journey earlier this week on social media thanking the crew and their loyal customers.

“When we first got the phone call from triple D we honestly couldn’t believe it was real. How did they find our small-town seaside bar? We’ve always taken pride in serving good food and showcasing local bands for our community but this opportunity was next level. After a few difficult years of trying to survive through the restrictions of Covid, we are even more grateful to have made it out to the other side. This whole experience was so much fun. It was great getting to know the crew who made the process of filming easy and enjoyable. We hope everyone continues to enjoy our food and our locals always have a place to call home,” Adam of The Chubby Pickle staff told Beasley Media NJ.

You can catch The Chubby Pickle and their Mojo Pork Tacos and Korean Chilli Wings on the Food Network’s  Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on Friday, July 15th at 9 pm ET.
