Disher TV Report: Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives: Louie’s in Dallas

Thanks to another eagle-eyed Disher for his report.

I wanted to make sure you knew that the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” program aired an episode last night titled “Family Favorites” that included local watering hole/good food paradise Louie’s. The show Web site doesn’t mention Louie’s,  but instead includes a Fort Worth restaurant that I don’t think was included in the program that aired last night (I only caught the Louie’s segment).

The piece on Louie’s, which was the final segment in the show, focused on their pizzas, the “Don” sandwich (homemade steak burger smothered in onions and jalapenos with a slice of cheese and one piece of bacon sandwiched between rye bread), and the soon-to-be-famous mulligatawny soup, an Indian dish, heavy on the lamb, that the crew at Louie’s was inspired to make after the infamous “Soup Nazi” episode of Seinfeld. Louie Canalakes and his brother Chris, the head chef, were featured prominently in interviews with the show’s host, Guy Fieri.

I wasn’t at the bar last night, but I know they were watching, apparently along with everyone else since I couldn’t get through on the phone last night and got a call from my mom in Kentucky this morning who said she saw the show and is packing her bags for a trip to Dallas so she can try the food at Louie’s for herself.

And that’s the name of that tune.

UPDATE: PegNews reports Watauga’s Chef Point Cafe will appear on April 6th episode of DDD.
