Who is going to appear on the Food Network? This guy!

EUGENE, Ore. - Guy Fieri is in Lane County filming an episode of the Food Network show "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives".

So far we know Fieri has visited Sushi Pure, Cornbread Cafe, Papa's Soul Food and the Fisherman's Market in Eugene and Junkyard Burgers and Brats in Junction City.

The owner of Sushi Pure said Fieri was there to eat, not film.

Elsewhere, the food personality put the cameras to work.

Ed Lackington, the retail manager at Fisherman's Market, said Fieri's show checks out reviews on Yelp and Urbanspoon and asks owners of previous places they've been to decide where to stop.

Lackington said they cooked up their cajun crawfish pie and crab dinner.

"He does a lot of shops, and there are some he tells 'you're going to blow up,' and he said 'you're going to blow up,' so we felt really good about it," Lackington said.

According to the Food Network PR department, an air date has not been locked in yet for the episode.
