It's a big deal when a restaurant gets a visit from Guy Fieri, but two visits? A south Minneapolis restaurant can now claim that honor.

Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub, located at 2716 E 38th St, announced on Friday that it'll be featured on Fieri's long-running "Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives" a second time.

The episode, which airs on Food Network Friday, March 12, at 8:00pm, will show Fieri chowing down on Northbound's "famous Wild Rice Burger & Beer Cheese Soup."

This comes five years after the brewpub's first appearance, which was on the November 2015 episode "Piggin' Out" — in which Fieri sampled the hot wings. 

It's part of an ongoing love affair between Northbound and Food Network, which declared the restaurant's chicken sandwich one of America's best in February 2020. 

"This chicken sandwich is familiar, sort of like something your grandmother would have made for a picnic — if she were a really great chef," Food Network wrote at the time.
