Plot Synopsis

Host Ted Allen and a roster of Food Network stars travel across America to find restaurants, cafes, takeout joints, and hole-in-the-wall dives that make the single best rendition of a dish. Each one-hour episode features a different classic food -- pizza, barbecue, breakfast and burgers -- and personalities like Alex Guarnaschelli, Anne Burrell, Marc Murphy and Aaron Sanchez share the ins and outs of these must-try specialties, revealing the hot spots at which to find them. The series premiere highlights the country's best pizza, including a mouthwatering margherita baked to perfection in 90 seconds in Austin, TX; a restaurant in Cambridge, MA, that's getting high marks for their meat-pilled pizza; an underground pizzeria that pops up at a Northwest restaurant that wows diners with unique toppings; and one SoCal restaurant that ships materials from Italy for the oven of their dreams, which is turning out their signature pork pizza. The country's best BBQ can be found at one popular Austin restaurant with lines that stretch down and around the block; the mash-up of Korean and American-style barbecue that draws a big crowd at a small Atlanta barbecue shack; succulent smoked chicken in Philadelphia and spicy jerk chicken in the Twin Cities; a dive bar turning out delectable barbecue in Cambridge, MA; and the San Fran restaurant whose signature barbecue platter comes with every meat, side and fixin' on the menu. Viewers can sample the best ever breakfasts with a Boston sweet treat so otherworldly, it beat Bobby Flay; in Philadelphia, waffles meet with cake and in the Twin Cities, there's a hot and hearty pancake that's an engineering marvel; there's egg and cheese in Los Angeles with real star quality; the Vietnamese twist on bacon and eggs in Austin; the classic New York bagel gets an update with beets; and the breakfast special in Atlanta which is like a buffet on a plate. Finally, you can find the best burgers in Atlanta, where a double cheeseburger is so exclusive that only a few dozen are served each night; the most talked about burger in New York is sandwiched between something usually found in soup; a burger served on a bed of freshly-cut fries and topped with everything but the kitchen sink; and a cheeseburger stuffed with cheese that melts right out of the patty.
