Guy Fieri has been all over the country checking out some of the most unique restaurants and flavors for his TV show, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."

His trek for delicious cuisine has brought him to the Grand Canyon state many times -- 25 to be exact.

In his Arizona visits, Fieri has tried everything from gas station BBQ to farm-fresh burgers, authentic Italian sausage to pasta-topped pizza. And of course, gourmet Mexican tacos.

We found all the restaurants that have been featured on 'DDD.' Most are in the Phoenix area, but Guy traveled up to Flagstaff to check out two others. He hasn't been to Tucson yet, it seems.

Scroll down to start planning your next 'DDD' foodie road trip in Arizona.
