"United States of Food" is a reality series on Destination America.

Everyone has a bucket list of things to accomplish in their lifetime. They usually look a bit like this: hike the Appalachian Trail, visit Graceland, go on a New Orleans ghost tour, get pulled onto stage at a Vegas magic show — but Chef Todd Fisher hungers for experiences with a bit more "meat" to them. As a life-long restaurateur, Chef Todd's passion for palate pleasers has him questing for the best bacon, burgers, and steaks at not just eateries, but meat temples, across the nation.

Throughout the series, "United States of Food" visits venues with the best and most innovative menu items in the nation. Making Chef Todd's "bucket list" are pop culture mainstays like Chicago's Billy Goat Tavern, whose "cheeburgers" were made famous by "Saturday Night Live," as well as trail-blazing small businesses like the Bacon Bacon Truck in San Francisco and their traffic-stopping grilled cheese, which oozes bacon jam in addition to containing a few strips of the real stuff. A visit to NYC's famous Crif Dogs proves serendipitous as record-holding hot dog competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi is spotted among the crowd of diners tasting his first bacon-wrapped hot dog. "United States of Food" rounds out its journey at venues as interesting as the dishes they concoct, such as The Grill House in Allegan, Michigan, a grill-your-own steak joint that is also rumored to be haunted.

"United States of Food" is produced for Destination America by Sharp Entertainment. For Sharp, Matt Sharp is executive producer. For Destination America, Fay Yu and Ron Simon are executive producers, Sara Kozak is SVP of production, Marc Etkind is SVP of content strategy, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
