LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A local restaurant known for its burgers is in the national spotlight.

Mussel & Burger Bar will be featured on the Travel Channel show "Food Paradise." Fans of the show and restaurant took part in the filming Wednesday at the downtown location.

Owner and chef Fernando Martinez says this kind of publicity is good for business.

"Oh yeah, every time we do one of these shows, we'll see an increase in business," said owner and chef Fernando Martinez. "There are some people who come to Louisville just to eat at the restaurant, so that's awesome."

Mussel & Burger Bar is part of the same restaurant group that includes Mercato Italiano, Red Barn Kitchen and El Taco Luchador.

It is not yet known when the episode will air.
