Tonight:Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives stops at Steuben's

For years, Coloradans have longed for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives to focus on some of our state's worthy spots. We've served up list after list of suggested diners, drive-ins and dives to D3, but somehow, Guy Fieri and company managed to pass us by.

But tonight, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives will brake for the lobster roll at Steuben's, in an episode focusing on "Signature Sandwiches." So far, that's the only local restaurant to make the cut after the Food Network crew filmed several local restaurants last fall -- and even Steuben's owner Josh Wolkon didn't know that the lobster roll was what had landed Steuben's in the spotlight until he heard that tonight's episode had been scheduled.

And so Steuben's will be throwing a premiere party from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., featuring a $10 lobster roll sandwich (that's a bargain, given the cost of making that sandwich) with fries, as well as offering Triple D drinking games and giveaways. For more information, call 303-830-1001.

If you're watching at home, the episode starts at 8 p.m.
