Traffic Jam restaurant to be on Guy Fieri's 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives'

Detroit's Traffic Jam & Snug restaurant will be featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" show at 10 p.m. Nov. 28.

 

The program, starring host Guy Fieri, was filmed in August, along with segments at Supino Pizzeria in Eastern Market, and in Clarkston at Union Woodshop and Clarkston Union. At Traffic Jam, Fieri made two dishes with chef-owner Carolyn Howard and got a tour of the 18,000-square-foot restaurant, which includes a dairy, bakery, brewery and rooftop garden. Howard said the filming was "a blast for our staff and customers." Fieri "was really surprised that nearly everything we serve at the restaurant ... is made from scratch." The restaurant, at 511 W. Canfield, opened in 1965 and became Michigan's first licensed brew pub in 1992.
