Our tacos at the gas station are ready for their closeup.
The Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives has selected R&R Taqueria as a spot to film on their current trip to Baltimore.
I'm personally excited because I lobbied for R&R (along with some other joints) when the show's production company talked to me a few weeks ago as they were scouting. I said the food was delicious and that they were guaranteed great video because people eat their tacos looking over the gas pumps. Then Tom Sietsema named R&R in his Fall Dining Guide, which let me say that they didn't have to rely on a blogger about the delicious part.
I hadn't mentioned anything because I didn't want the show to think R&R was trumpeting the event too early. But Matt posted an R&R flyer on the HowChow Facebook page that announces the filming and notes that R&R will need to close for much of Nov. 8 and Nov. 14.
(Update: See below Cara's comment that she emailed DD&D about R&R months ago. People look out for R&R.)
In far away news, R&R's Web site has photos of new location in the White Marsh Mall.
