Jose Baserva has been waiting in suspense for months because Food Network keeps changing the air date on him.

His restaurant Jose’s Real Cuban Food had been scheduled to be seen June 6 during an episode of Food Network’s popular road show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

Then he had a September date, which changed as of today.

Here's the latest info on when a nationwide audience will be able to see crazy-haired host Guy Fieri dine on Baserva's picadillo, paella and boliche.

9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19 on Food Network as well noon Tuesday, Sept. 20 and 9 p.m. Friday Sept. 30.

Back in June, Baserva told the Herald business had quadrupled since the news broke in May that “Triple D” had taped at Jose’s.

“It’s nuts, it’s absolutely nuts,” Baserva said. “We really appreciate community helping us out.”

What’s the restaurant owner expect in terms of customer turnout after the show airs?

“Forget it!” Baserva said with a big chuckle.

 Jose’s Real Cuban Food is at 8799 Cortez Road West, Bradenton.
