Republica Empanada in downtown Mesa is the latest Valley eatery to catch the eye of the Food Network’s ‘‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.’’

Show host Guy Fieri and his crew spent Thursday filming at Republica Empanada for a future episode. The restaurant was closed to the public all day.

Republica Empanada opened in June 2013 and features Latin American comfort food. The signature menu items are a variety of empanadas – hand-held pastries with savory or sweet fillings (pictured).

No word yet on when the episode will air.
