LOGAN – MayMoes had a sign on the door announcing they were closed Wednesday and Thursday. The parking lot had cars with New York, California and Nevada license plates.
When asked about it, MayMoes owner Jason Davis put on his poker face and said he really didn’t know anything about the television show.
The word got out that Guy Fieri, an award-winning chef and restaurateur, had a crew of production people working on his Food Network show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
With lights, cameras and action at MayMoes they videoed a segment for the show that highlighted the Logan Cajun Grill.
After Fieri and his production crew were gone, Davis said he still wasn’t sure what he could say, but he did say it was a great experience.
“We had a great time and great food and we really enjoyed the people he brought,” Davis said. “They were really nice and it was great to have them here.”
He said he didn’t know anything about when the episode would air but expected them to let him know.
Davis wasn’t sure if MayMoes was the first Logan eatery to be featured on the show, but with 1,100 total diners and restaurants and over 375 cities visited, there have been several places in Utah featured in “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
Fieri and his crew started highlighting places to eat in 2007 and the show has lasted 30 seasons. The Emmy Award-winning host has been to about 20 different places in Utah; most have been in the Salt Lake area. Logan is the furthest north he has visited on his hosted show.
“I think having Fieri here is good for Logan,” Davis said. “It was a neat experience.”
Fieri’s bio says he started pushing food from a three-wheeled bike when he was 10-years-old and went on to graduate from University of Nevada-Las Vegas earning a degree in Hospitality Management.
The Food Network is owned by Discovery Channel and has been on the air for 25 years.
