Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” came to Clarkston to feature Kid Rock at one of his favorite restaurants, Clarkston Union Bar & Kitchen — a restaurant converted from a 1840’s church to a bar in 1996.
“Out of everything you could have taken me to, you took me to a church that makes mac and cheese,” said Fieri, host of the program that features the most unique restaurants in America, to Kid Rock.
“They also serve good beer,” added Kid Rock, with a smirk. The musician is the creator of Badass Beer that the restaurant sells.
Food Network staff said the Clarkston Union episode should air within the next six months. Fieri said the episode will be historic piece for “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.”
"When we started this whole idea about coming to Detroit to shoot a couple years ago, because we hadn't shot up in this area for awhile, Kid and I started talking. I said, 'Tell me some of your favorite joints, man. Tell me what you dig.' And (Clarkston Union Diner) was one of his picks,” Fieri said. "This is Kid Rock's backyard.”
Fieri said after this episode airs, life will never be the same for Clarkston Union owner Curt Catallo.
