Who doesn’t love the Mayor of Flavor Town? The celebrity chef and TV icon made a visit to Central Florida recently and made a thoughtful donation while he was here. The Ocala Police Department shared on their Facebook that Guy Fieri brought 10 pizzas for officers working the late night shift.
“The pizza donation was much appreciated by the A-squad night officers. Thank you, Mr. Fieri for your thoughtfulness and generosity!” read the Facebook post.
We’re not sure why the “Diners, Drive-In’s and Dives” host was in the Sunshine State, but he’s always welcomed here. During his visit he also stopped in a couple local restaurants for some good bites. He was even led to one location by a local customer who swears by the food. The owner of Ocala Downtown Diner posted this on Facebook: “It was a slower than normal Saturday… but that gave me the opportunity to personally meet Guy Fieri! One of our awesome customers bought him in! What an awesome experience!”
The Mayor of Flavor Town also stopped by Big Lee’s Serious About BBQ in Ocala. Pitmaster Rashad Jones shared his experience with Fieri, he was extremely grateful for the time he spent with him. On social media he wrote: “He took time out of his crazy busy schedule to pay us a visit here in Ocala at Big Lee’s, try our burnt ends (and said they’re amazing) and spend time with my family, friends, staff and customers.”
So keep an eye out for the Ocala Downtown Diner and Big Lee’s, they might be on the next episode of “Diners, Drive-In’s, and Dives.”
