Reader: I hate Guy Fieri, but at least he led me to Cora Faye's Cafe
Fried chicken at Cora Faye's Cafe.
Love him or hate him, at least Guy Fieri brings national attention to some worthy local restaurants, including Cora Faye's Cafe, which was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives last month. Fieri raved about chef/owner Priscilla Smith's fried chicken, pork neck bones, collard greens, cabbage, hush puppies and chitlins.

A friend recommended I stop at CoraFaye's restaurant when I am vacationing in CO this week. She said, 'It was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!" I grumbled something about hating Guy Fieri with the white-hot passion of a thousand burning suns. But I googled the restaurant and found your article on Guy getting on the bus to Douchebagistan...and I haven't laughed so hard in weeks. Thank you so much, and nice to know there are more of you out there that don't buy into his crap.
