The Great Food Truck Race Full Episode Guide

  • The trucks arrive to the Old West Town of Yuma and head to the historic Arizona Territory Prison, where prisoners from all over the Wild West were sent. Tyler gives the teams an artichokes and bacon relay challenge, then they must add an original dish starring the two ingredients to their menu and start selling. The residents of Yuma show up strong, with lines of people twenty deep waiting for truck specialties. After a day of massive sales, one team is eliminated and the final three trucks head to the next destination.

  • The trucks travel to Phoenix and meet Tyler at a Sonic Drive-In for a blind taste test and original savory dish challenge inspired by Sonic's signature drinks. One team member is left operating his truck solo when his teammates leave the race, and the full day's sales in Phoenix is a close one, with the top four teams totals separated by less than $60. At Rawhide Ranch, the truck that made the least money is named and the four remaining teams move forward.

  • The teams hit Fremont Street in Las Vegas, and Tyler gives them a challenge using one of the most popular items on Vegas menus: shrimp. Each truck must create their own ultimate shrimp dish to sell right on Fremont Street, and the team that makes the most money wins a prime parking spot for selling the next day. Then Tyler and special guest Elizabeth Blau visit the teams and offer business and culinary advice. The teams sell their signature dishes on the streets of Vegas, and the least successful truck is eliminated.

  • The final two food truck teams arrive in Savannah, and Tyler Florence's first challenge brings the teams out of the food trucks and into a new mobile selling vehicle: pedicabs. Each team has a half hour to make as much food as possible to sell out of their own pedicabs, and the team with the most profits gets $500 added to their till. Next, the teams travel through the city, where they sell head-to-head in new locations. At each location, they receive a new shellfish to include in a dish, and the team that sells the most fish dishes gets $500. Finally, Tyler reveals the team with the highest total till, the winner of The Great Food Truck Race: Battle for the South!

  • The remaining three food truck teams arrive at a peach farm in Athens, Georgia, where they meet Tyler Florence and Athens chef Mimi Maumus. In the first challenge, the teams make a savory dish using the provided ingredients and peaches. The winning team gets to shut down the other two trucks for one hour at any time during the sell. Then, Tyler throws them a curveball while shopping and asks them for a completely fresh menu. The team with the lowest sales is sent home.

  • Tyler Florence has a surprise for the four remaining food truck teams: a taste of the Nashville's famous hot chicken, prepared by Nashville native and owner of restaurant 400 Degrees, Aqui Hines. The teams sample and see if they can take the heat, then Tyler challenges them to make their own versions of hot dishes, but without chicken. Aqui tastes the dishes, awarding the winner $500 in their till. On the second day in Nashville, Tyler has the teams create their own self-promotion, much like the many artists in the city. Country singer Craig Wayne Boyd judges their promotions, rewarding the winning team with immunity.

  • The remaining five trucks arrive in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to find Tyler Florence and pastry chef Jan Moon waiting for them with a challenge: to crack the most pecans in just 15 minutes. The teams must then use their pecans in a dessert dish to sell on their trucks, with the winner receiving valuable mentoring time with Jan and the team that makes the most profits winning $200. On the second day in Tuscaloosa, Tyler challenges the cooks to a happy hour: for one hour, the pecan dishes will be sold for $1 only, and the team with the overall lowest sales will be out of the competition.

  • Highest grossing teams from the first leg of the race pick teams to work with to feed 50 service members; teams with the favorite dish get $200 added to their final till; they hit the streets of Pensacola to sell their dishes.

  • Teams must create their own version of a beignet and sell it in the French Market; whatever money they earn, they get to add to their seed money.
