Comedian Matt Richards is pitting America’s wildest and most creative foods against each other in an all-out food fight. He’s hitting the biggest state fairs, most insanely delicious street scenes and everything in between to sample outrageous concoctions whipped up by the country’s most creative cooks.

In each location, he’ll taste six dishes over three rounds of competition, looking for over-the-top inventiveness, eye-popping visuals, and that special quality that makes his taste buds tingle. Then he’ll choose the best of the best and declare that dish “Best in Chow.”
