i hate to say it, bolas, but part of the reason places like mickey d's survive because of time, or lack thereof really.

you can get a 'meal" within a minute without having to ever get out of your car at mcdonald's or wendy's. you can be done stuffing your face and back on the road in your hectic day within 10 minutes, or as fast as you can eat it.

whereas eating at a diner would requiring waddling into the joint and waiting 15 minutes or longer for your food.

i know that seems wrong, and healthwise, it statistically is.

I like the show, the host, and diner food, myself. But I think it's a bit overexposed these days.

Mr. Fieri has, though, opened our eyes to what may be in our own backyard.

I enjoy those types of shows and guide books that point out these little places but, in the end I think they ruin most of the places with the added exposure and fame.
