Good Dog Bar & Restaurant — Philadelphia

This Center City bar has been around since Prohibition, and while the setting boasts 100 years of history, the menu is anything but old-fashioned. Stocked with upscale comfort food (and plenty of dog photos), this eatery serves inspired combinations like duck confit pot pie and baked macaroni and cheese (pictured). Guy Fieri sampled the pot pie on Triple D and loved the "prime-time" richness of the duck with shiitake mushrooms, peas and thyme in a Chinese five-spice sauce. The mac and cheese, a creamy stunner made with Gruyere, aged Gouda and aged cheddar, arrives bubbling hot and topped with cornflakes, with a side of blueberry cornbread.

DMK Burger Bar — Chicago

Just a few blocks from Wrigley Field you'll find this mecca of beef that's cranking out gourmet burgers and homemade sides by the dozens. A former fine-dining chef dreams up strange yet sensational combinations, like the bison burger with blueberry barbecue sauce that delivers what Guy called "monster flavor." Paired with fresh goat cheese and pickled onions, the finished burger has just the right amount of "crustification" and crunch from the griddle. Beyond beef, the bar also carries veggie, turkey and fish options, like the tender salmon burger (pictured) that's topped with Asian coleslaw and a Thai red curry sauce. Back those burgers up with rustic hand-cut fries, and check out a wide selection of housemade sodas and shakes.

Anchor Bar — Buffalo

Known as the "birthplace of the Buffalo wing" since 1964, this upstate New York institution was the setting for a hot-wing Throwdown between Bobby and "the wing king," Drew Cerza. A hometown hero, Cerza is seriously passionate about his wings, which are fried naked without a dredge and tossed in a bourbon-brown sugar barbecue sauce that's spiked with ancho chiles and honey for spicy sweetness. Served with traditional sides of blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, Cerza's juicy jumbo wings prove that Buffalo still knows best when it comes to its namesake dish. Anchor Bar offers its famous specialty in mild, medium, hot and "suicidal" heat levels, and the restaurant ships frozen wings all over the country.
