Guy Fieri Brings Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives to Panozzo's

If you were looking for some solid Italian food yesterday, you were out of luck according to this picture a reader sent to us: Good to see a solid South Loop business/restaurant get some national attention. For more background here is what Panozzo's emailed us a couple of weeks ago about the show:

The Food Network Show 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' starring Guy Fieri has picked Panozzo's Italian Market to be featured in a new Chicago-centric episode. They'll be visiting and shooting the first week of March (actual air date TBD) and the subject will be Porchetta, Meatballs and True Bolognese.
Should be a fun episode to watch. If we get additional information we will pass it on!

Also, the reader also took this picture yesterday. Guy's facny red car parked outside of the store:

Yeah! We love Panozzo's. Any time we entertain (or just want to pack it in for a night of TV and red wine), we hit them up for meat, cheese and olives. Particularly after Sam's closed down.

Congrats to our Sloop Pals!

WOW! I'm a big fan of the show and a big fan of Panozzo's. Their business is going to be good after the show airs.

Good to see Panozzo's get this attention though I don't think it's a Diner or a Drive-In and it's far from a dive!

That being said, let's hope this attention brings lots of new business to them.

We love this place! The food is wonderful and the staff is great.
