Gus Paschalis of Evanston’s Wiener and Still Champion reports that a crew from the Food Network will stop by his shop Friday.

They’ll be at 802 Dempster St. to shoot scenes for an episode of the network’s “Diners, Drive Ins and Dives” series called, what else, “Pizza, Burgers and Hot Dogs.”

Paschalis says the spotlight will be on his one- and three-pound cheeseburgers, handmade dipping dogs and other treats including the fried pickles.
