A few months ago the Travel Channel’s Food Wars, the TV show, was in Tucson to determine who has the best Sonoran hot dog.
The show airs Tuesday – April 6 – check your local programming.
As the food police or food media, I was privy to pre-watching the show but sworn to strict secrecy as to who the winner is. I know the winner. Yep, I do. But you’ll have to watch the show to find out or if you don’t have cable, I’ll post the winner here after the show airs.
I can tell you that the show looks like everyone involved from the restaurants to the fans to the judges had a great time that day.
Let’s talk about the judges — Rita Connelly, restaurant critic from Tucson Weekly, Tom McNamara from KVOA-TV, and John Fina from the UA.
Then there were two brothers whose names I cannot remember. One brother lived for Sonoran hot dogs at El Guero Canelo and the other brother lived for the Sonoran hot dogs at BK’s. It’s a simple story told with much heart and I swear I could smell those grilled onions sizzling through the TV. Where is Smellivision when we need it?
Which is your favorite?
