Season 1, Episode 2

Birmingham's Southern Fried Food Trucks

Andrew Zimmern hits the road and heads to Birmingham, Ala., to explore one of the hottest up-and-coming food cities in the country. He meets the owner of Chubbfathers, who's committed to cooking comfort food and feeding hungry folks -- even if they can't pay -- out of his postage stamp-sized kitchen on wheels. Andrew also gets to know a young couple that decided to take the money they had saved for a fairy-tale wedding and spend it on a food truck instead. Now they're living happily ever after with their trailer, Highway Kabobery, and serving artisanal kabobs and fresh sauces. He explores Granny's Fish 'N Grits, where a multi-generational family is crushing the legacy dishes of the South, including shrimp and grits and deep-fried catfish. Finally, Andrew rewards one deserving culinary dreamer with a $10,000 tip and a Food Network seal of approval.
