Machine Shop Love on ‘Diner’s Drive In’s And Dives’ Clarkston

The Union Woodshop restaurant in Clarkston, Michigan was visited for the second time by one of the Food Network’s most popular shows – Diner’s, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Host Guy Fieri first visited Union Woodshop and Clarkston Union in 2011 with Kid Rock as his tour guide. That’s when the world discovered the “most macerated” macaroni and cheese on the planet.

Every person I know who has eaten mac and cheese (at one of Union Joints) knows that once is not enough – people are addicted to the first bite. The proof is that Diner‘s Drive-In’s and Dives returned for seconds in 2021.

The new episode recently aired on the Food Network (7/1/22) and features two very familiar faces to anyone who has ever been to The Machine Shop in Flint, Michigan – owner Kevin Zink and creator/owner of Machine Shop Gear Johanna Hoelzle.

As you’ll see in the video below, Kevin and Johanna were also featured in the first episode in 2011. The love of the machine shop doesn’t end with Kevin and Johanna – the business partner of Union Woodshop, Erich Lines, wears a machine shop hat on the new episode and there’s a machine shop sign hanging in the Shop Shop bar above the restaurant. How cool is that?

Check for yourself. Pick me up after watching the video, I’m also hungry for BBQ and I’ve already had six beers – let’s go.
