Frequent commenter Dan pointed me to an article in the Saginaw News that says Tony’s Restaurant in Birch Run may be featured on my favorite show Diner’s, Drive-In’s, and Dives.
“They got an overwhelming amount of calls about us being on their show,” said Steve Fritzler, 10-year owner of the restaurant. “You have to get a certain amount of referrals from customers.”
Fritzler said producers contacted him about three months ago and indicated they wanted to tape this summer.
On the day of filming, posted notices will warn patrons not to enter if they don’t want to appear on TV.
A representative from show producer Page Productions of Minneapolis, Minn., would not confirm whether taping would take place.
Tony’s was one of the places I wanted to stop when we took a trip to Frankenmuth last fall, but I wasn’t sure if it was a place my parents would enjoy. It definitely sounds like a place J and I would enjoy and it’s now getting bumped up to a higher priority on our list of stops.
