On Friday’s episode of Food Network’s “Burgers, Brew & ’Que,” host Michael Symon will give reality television star Kendra Wilkinson a tour of Detroit.

According to a teaser for the episode, Symon will show Wilkinson some of Detroit’s microbreweries as well as coney dogs and spicy Korean sliders. Wilkinson is best known as one of Hugh Hefner’s three girlfriends on the reality show “The Girls Next Door.” She also stared in her own reality show, “Kendra.”

Symon, a Cleveland native and James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef, has a handful of restaurants in Metro Detroit, including the upscale Roast in the Westin Book Cadillac, and the more casual bar and restaurant B Spot Burgers in Rochester and Royal Oak.

The premise of “Burgers, Brew & ’Que” is a road trip style culinary tour through different cities, often with a celebrity joining Symon.

The episode, titled “Motor City’s Mouthwatering Meats,” airs at 10 p.m. Friday and 1 a.m. Saturday on the Food Network.
