The Triple D episode featured two of the Cast Iron Kitchen’s most popular items, their dirty south biscuit and meatloaf sandwich. Petty said it was a dream come true meeting Guy Fieri.

“That was the biggest thing I took away from it is he had so many good things and so much good advice to tell us,” Petty said. “So it was a good experience. All in all, I just loved it.”

Petty said this is the first restaurant he has ever owned. Petty adds he has noticed the Cast Iron Kitchen has been getting busier recently, he hopes the momentum continues.
