Plot Synopsis

THE GRILL DADS is a half-hour reality series that follows Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey (aka The Grill Dads), as they travel across America to showcase some of the nation's most-epic bites. After winning GUY'S BIG PROJECT, Mark and Ryan were given their own series, THE GRILL DADS, which premiered on Sunday, December 10, 2017 immediately following the season finale of GUY'S BIG PROJECT. In that first episode, "Big Kids for the Kid at Heart," the Grill Dads kick off their delicious road adventure by going on the hunt for over-the-top versions of food their kids absolutely love. In Portland, Oregon, they find The Grilled Cheese Grill where everyone's favorite sammie is the star player. The Dads have had a thousand grilled cheeses, but they've never had one stuffed with a decadent burger. At Boise Fry Company, the Dads discover crispy French fries, bison poutine and fried mashed potato balls. Finally, the Dads travel to San Francisco's Bacon Bacon, where the bacon so good they say it twice. On tap are fried bacon mac and cheese balls, and a juicy chicken sandwich breaded with salty bacon dust. Five days later -- on December 15 -- THE GRILL DADS moved to its regular timeslot: Fridays at 9:30pm. In the time-slot premiere, "Frying Just Makes It Awesome," the road trip continues as the Grill Dads search the country for classic comfort dishes fried up into surprising and incredible meals. In San Francisco, they belly up to Capo's for the world's best fried deep-dish pizza. Then it's on to Seattle where Katsu Burger's Godzilla Attack is a katsu-style monster to devour. Finally, the Grill Dads visit Backstreet Grill in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for a fried duck burrito flavored with New Mexican chilies and served like a sushi roll.
On Friday, February 9, 2018 at 11pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered "Over-the-Top Comfort," the season finale of THE GRILL DADS. The Grill Dads take on the best of home cooking-inspired restaurant fare. First, they visit The Doughnut Lounge in Kansas City, MO, where they whip up homemade doughnuts and pair them with crispy burnt ends from smoked brisket to create a sweet and savory breakfast sandwich that's too unique to miss. Then the Dads visit Albuquerque, NM, to fry up a pastry called a Sopapilla that's stuffed with spicy beef and pork ribs for the ultimate sloppy joe. Finally, the Dads travel to Denver, CO, to make a gorgeous deconstructed lasagna with fresh pasta and filet mignon meatballs.
