6 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show entertains us by showcasing a town/city's best eating joints. These are places where regular folks eat and shows us signature dishes for a city/town/restaurant. They vary from greasy spoons, mom and pop joints, seafood, fast food, dairy bars, etc. Those of you who hate this show and find it disgusting and gross need to realize that it is a TV show meant to entertain and if you don't like what you see, turn the channel! (Or you can apply parental controls in case you get the urge to watch). There are many TV shows depicting all sorts of behaviour such as crime, addictions, hoarding,tattooing, dating, etc. Some of it is reality some of it is fiction. But, all of it is on TV and is meant to entertain, not educate us.
