DeFalco's Italian Eatery, Grocery & Deli — Scottsdale, Ariz.

Since DeFalco's Italian Eatery, Grocery & Deli opened up in 1972, it's been using recipes that have been in the family for more than a century. Some of the specialties include the Il Purista: a cold sandwich with prosciutto, house-made fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato, in-house roasted red peppers, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar on fresh bread. Also try the Roman Centurion calzone (featuring that same delicious fresh cheese and soppressata) and the house-made Italian sausages. Guy calls the food here "too legit to quit."

Jimmy's Down the Street — Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Jimmy's Down the Street has been a steadfast corner of Coeur d'Alene in Idaho for more than 50 years, even if the owners have changed. It's a '50s diner described by locals as a town hall with comfort food. When Guy tried the famous Pecan Rolls, he could barely find time to speak while quickly eating one but managed to say: "There's such great texture to the dough. It's almost like candy on the outside." If you prefer something savory, try the biscuits and gravy.

Bobo's Drive In — Topeka, Kan.

Generations of folks in Topeka, Kan., come together to eat at Bobo's Drive In. Since 1953, Bobo's has been doing all the classics. This drive-in's specialty is homemade apple pie. Guy says, "Nobody's making apple pie like Jo Mendoza." He even calculated how many pies she's made during her tenure at Bobo's (195,000!). Come for the drive-in experience, a cheeseburger and a deliciously flaky slice of pie.
