Season 2 Episode 5

Buca di Beppo feat. Mike Perkins

In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: I took a real Italian to Buca di Beppo!

○ We're joined by comedian Mike Perkins to dive into inauthentic Italian slophouse, Buca di Beppo

○ Hear all about the Pope's room, the "vulgar" decor, and the fact that Buca's founder literally intended to "poke gentle fun" at Italians in this week's Eat Deets

○ Learn the rather interesting translation of Buca di Beppo

○ Harrison Augustine 💸 Arrylius XIV is anti-work

○ You could have bought the entire franchise for a few million dollars...

○ The Mother's Day debacle is detailed in this week's Yelp from Strangers

Part 2: Michael & Mike are just a couple of Midfellas

○ The breadiest love-making session ever is What's Going On Over There

○ Buca di Beppo's decor is funny how?

○ The portions at Buca are insane, as two men individually order a family style entree each

○ The dessert is "diabetes in a glass" according to the boys' server

Chip psychoanalyzes the characters on the Buca di Beppo kids menu in this week's Munchkin Menu Musings!

○ Mike's Instagram handle is taken to task

○ JUB's about to get pinched!
