Grae and Greg attempt to rally customers on the Santa Monica Pier, hoping to sell the most of their signature dishes. They don't win, but they've made enough seed money to get them to their first stop.
Moving on to Santa Fe, N.M., the team wins a chile-cooking challenge with its dish of Southern chicken and apple sausage soup with cornbread. With $1,000 added to the till, the team is well-off — until a surprise incident.
Unfortunately Mo grazes a car while trying to parallel park the truck. Greg decides to find a new spot, and Grae worries their lead will count for nothing, so she hustles up sales. Tyler ends up docking them $500.
On their second day in Texas, the team members try to make up for slow sales the day before, but a Speed Bump challenge forces Greg to run the truck alone. Unfortunately the team is eliminated for having the lowest sales.
