Guy Fieri Also Marked His Territory at Afrah in Richardson. Somehow That's Less Annoying.
Amidst his stops at Dallas' well loved "dives," Guy Fieri and his Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives crew filmed at the Middle Eastern restaurant Afrah in Richardson last week.
Brothers Ayad, Youssef and Nabil El-horr, who co-own and manage the restaurant together, initially opened Afrah just as a sweet shop back in 2002, but it quickly developed into a full-service restaurant with a menu based on their mother's Southern Lebanese recipes.
I spoke with Ayad today. He told me that next year, Afra will move into a new space just 50 feet away from their current location. It will be three times as big -- and they may need the extra space after the show airs. They are also plan to open a Middle Eastern grocery store next door.
Regulars soak it in while you can. Afrah has been marked.
