Capone’s Pub and Grill is slated to appear on Guy Fieri’s “Triple D Nation” in mid-October.

The segment is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Oct. 12 on Food Network.

The “Wings ‘n’ Things” episode of “Triple D Nation” features drumsticks and duck at a Miami restaurant and visit to a Nashville barbecue spot along with Capone’s.

The official description from Food Network’s website says, “Ain’t no thing but a chicken wing in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, when Guy Fieri stops by to taste a couple of new eats they’ve added.”

Filming actually took place at Capone’s Post Falls location, owner Teresa Capone said.

Fieri visited the Inland Northwest earlier this summer, filming restaurants for his new “Triple D Nation” as well as his popular “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” show.

June 9, he posted a photo on his Instagram account from the Capone’s Post Falls location.

“We were here 8 years ago. Place still rocks,” he wrote under the image, which shows people gathered around the Food Network star and a table full of food in front of the bar. It includes the hashtag #familyroadtrip.

The first time Fieri was at Capone’s, he noshed on Capone’s Ultimate Cheeseburger, Roasted Chicken Garlic Pizza and Beef Philly Grinder.

He filmed in the area in 2010, visiting Chaps, Elk Public House, Hills’ Restaurant and Lounge, Picabu Neighborhood Bistro, Waddell’s Pub and Grille, and Jimmy’s Down the Street – along with Capone’s – for “Diners, Drive-In and Dives.”

This year, he revisited Waddell’s and Capone’s and also tried Ruins, the North Monroe Street restaurant that specializes in small plates and ever-changing menus. It appeared on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on Sept. 21.

Spokane’s Nordic Smoke Barbecue food truck is also slated to appear on the season’s second episode, titled “Sandwiches, Southern and South of the Border.” The description for that show, scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Sept. 28, calls Nordic Smoke Barbecue “a lights-out food truck smokin’ up real-deal barbecue.” It recently won the Judges’ Choice Award at the Coeur d’Alene Casino’s annual BBQ Cook-Off

Waddell’s Pub and Grille appeared on “Triple D Nation” in mid-September.

That’s not all.

Also in September, Laurent Zirotti, chef and owner of Fleur de Sel in Post Falls and Fleur de Sel Artisan Creperie in Spokane and a semifinalist in the 2017 James Beard Awards, made it to the second round in “Guy’s Grocery Games.”

And, two years ago, Travis Tveit, the chef at Iron Goat Brewing in downtown Spokane, appeared on the show, telling The Spokesman-Review in 2016, “It was great. It was fun. I got to meet Guy Fieri. He is cool. He makes jokes and stuff. He is fun to hang out with.”

Fieri won the second season of “Food Network Star” in 2006 – and the prize of a six-episode show of his own: “Guy’s Big Bite.” He’s also since starred in “Guy’s Grocery Games,” “Guy’s Big Project,” “Guy’s Ranch Kitchen” and more.

Capone’s is at 315 N. Ross Point Road in Post Falls. Call (208) 457-8020.

Capone’s has a location in Coeur d’Alene, too. It’s at 751 N. Fourth St. Call (208) 667-4843.
