Reminder: Guerrilla Street Food (@GuerrillaStreet; 314-529-1328), RFT's "Best Food Truck" for 2012, will appear tonight on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The episode, titled "Burgers, Noodles and Quahogs," airs at 9 p.m. local time.
This is the first St. Louis establishment to appear on the current season of Guy Fieri's hit show after the spiky-haired one filmed segments at multiple area restaurants this June.
Update: (Monday, October 8, 2:15 p.m.) Guerrilla Street Food will host a watch party beginning at 7:30 p.m. this evening at Atomic Cowboy (4140 Manchester Avenue; 314-775-0775), featuring a whole roasted pig and a "surprise" musical guest.

Now, based on the episode schedule posted on the official Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives page of the Food Network website, it appears that we can pin down two more St. Louis restaurant appearances.
The Shaved Duck (2900 Virginia Avenue; 314-776-1407) looks set for the October 29 episode entitled "Food Done Right," which includes this description:
In St. Louis, the neighborhood joint putting the smoke on cheesefries and delicious duck.
Meanwhile, Espinos Mexican Bar and Grill (17409 Chesterfield Airport Road, Chestefield; 636-519-0044) seems a likely subject of the November 12 episode "Turn on Traditional":
This trip, Guy's gettin' a taste of traditional recipes, with a kick. In Chesterfield, Mo., the Mexican joint serving up a turn on mom's pork chile verde.
Of the St. Louis restaurants that Fieri visited -- that Gut Check knows about it -- only Dressel's (419 North Euclid Avenue; 314-361-1060) and Hwy 61 Roadhouse & Kitchen (34 South Old Orchard Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-968-0061) remain unscheduled.
