Maggie Sandford, a producer with the Food network show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” called this morning asking for suggestions in the Tacoma area. A visit by the show apparently is in the works.
Boy, do I have a list for her. We have no shortage of little joints with character around South Sound. Click the “read more” button to see my list.
What’s on your list? Who would you want the show to pay a visit?
