During a recent visit to the Midlands, the Food Network's Guy Fieri sampled burgers and country cooking in Five Points and Lexington.
The Farmer's Shed in Lexington and Pawleys Front Porch in Five Points confirmed Fieri spent time filming segments for his "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" program.
On his show, Fieri - a boisterous guy with bleached, spiky hair and sunburned face who wears bowling shirts - travels the country visiting local eateries.
Farmer's Shed owner Shirley Sease said the segment on her business is supposed to air after Christmas.
At Pawleys Front Porch, the show "liked the creativity of the hamburgers," said chef Kyle Taylor.
He said Fieri was interested in the restaurant's Sullivan's, Fripp and Caw Caw Creek burgers.
The Food Network crew spent two days at each location.
