On Monday, Jan. 31, an episode of Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” will air featuring Sacramento’s own Gatsby’s Diner. If recent history tells us anything (think Squeeze Inn), after a feature spot on DD&D the restaurant in question becomes so crowded that you’re lucky to get a parking spot much less a seat at the counter.
So stop in and grab a blood orange burger while you still can. It’s a masterpiece of beef, bacon, gouda and blood orange/roasted onion marmalade. Just don’t show up on Monday night, as Gatsby’s will be closing its doors to allow the staff time to watch their national TV debut. “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” airs Monday, Jan. 31 at 9 p.m. on the Food Network. Gatsby’s is at 2598 Alta Arden, #3, Sacramento; 977-0102.
