If you love Mac's Local Eats — and who doesn't love Mac's Local Eats? — you might want to set your DVR for Sunday evening: The Dogtown grill is being featured on the Travel Channel.

Chris McKenzie's acclaimed burger joint, which is embedded within the Tamm Avenue Grill (1225 Tamm Avenue, 314-479-8155), announced today that it will be featured on Food Paradise. The episode, "More Bite for the Buck," will air this Sunday at 7 p.m. CST.

No word on what other restaurants are included, though the Travel Channel teases the episode this way: "Frugal foodies across the country savor the savings while indulging in high quality meals without the high prices, from four dollar fried chicken tacos and one buck shucks to half-priced rib eyes and bargain breakfast bites." High quality and good prices? Yep, that sounds like Mac's!

The show also airs Monday, March 5, at 2 a.m. and Saturday, March 10, at 1 p.m.
