Brigantine Meat Market To Be On Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

South Jersey is no secret to being on reality television shows or in movies. In these past few years we have seen countless HGTV shows, QVC, The Bachelorette, and a few others, make our shorelines the backdrop of their episodes.

For the Bachelorette, they visited Morey’s Piers for a date, for HGTV they filmed throughout the island for Beachfront Bargain Hunt and Hotel Impossible, and now there is another show that was filmed in a sister town north, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Host Guy Fieri travels across America in search of some of the best “greasy spoon” eateries. On an upcoming episode of “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives,” he is visiting Ernest & Sons Meat Market, located at 3305 W. Brigantine Ave. in Brigantine.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time the show has been in South Jersey or even Ernest & Sons Meat Market. Guy Fieri stopped by back in 2017 to sample Ernest’s famous Tailgater Sandwich.

If you haven’t had a Tailgater yet, you need to try it. The sandwich consists of homemade sausage with grilled onion and peppers on a specialty bun.

No one had a clue that DDD stopped by the store to film this episode. It was so held under wraps that the first time we heard of it was last Tuesday when the owner of Ernest and Son, put a message on Facebook.

The post went on to say;

“DDD is back! Ernest and Son are excited to announce our New show will air this Friday, Oct. 28 at 9 pm on the food network show title is “From sausage to sweet” We appreciate the opportunity and are excited for everyone to see it!!! Thank you for all the support as always!”

Along with the post were a few photos showing how they filmed inside the shop.

The episode titled, Triple D Nation: From Sausage to Sweet will air this Friday at 9 pm. The TV Guide description reads;

“Guy Fieri’s got sweet and savory when he tries knock-out candy apples at a treat truck in Pembroke, NC, and visits a tried-and-true butcher shop in Brigantine, NJ. An old school Jersey City diner has a new name, but the pancakes are still the same.”

One interesting fact is there is a restaurant in Cape May that has the famous Guy Fieri mark outside of its building. Can you guess where it is? HINT: it is near Congress Hall.
