Though it has been three years since Bakersfield OTR first appeared in an episode of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," the Over-the-Rhine eatery attracts new business with every rerun.   "We do get people coming in every time that show airs and (they) say, 'We saw your restaurant on 'Triple D,' " said Joe Lanni, co-founder of the Thunderdome Group, which owns Bakersfield and local restaurants The Eagle, Krueger's Tavern, Currito and Maplewood Kitchen & Bar.  Celebrity chef Guy Fieri's popular Food Network television show featured Bakersfield's 1213 Vine St. location, and fellow Over-the-Rhine restaurants Senate and Taste of Belgium, on the episode "One Street Wonders," which originally aired Oct. 10, 2014.
