Close Encounters of the Hungry Kind - New Mexico

Episode: CCPZM-102H

Vegas, baby! But not the one you're thinking of. No, this Vegas is slap dab in the heart of New Mexico, a quaint little town with deep roots in Old Western lore, and being just two hours north of Roswell, it's at the tip of "Alien Alley," a place with more UFO sightings than anywhere else in the world. Why are Fran and Sal, two Staten Island pizza guys, in this remote location in the middle of the desert looking for ETs? Sal has been obsessed with UFOs and all things extraterrestrial since he was a kid, and he desperately wants to make "contact." Fran, on the other hand, would rather be making contact with hundred dollar bills on the "real" Vegas strip. But, on this trip, one thing they can agree on is that there are some good eats in New Mexico. First, the boys grab breakfast at a place called Charlie's Spic & Span Bakery & Cafe where they learn the secret of New Mexican cooking, red and green chiles. Next, they set up camp in the desert and look for UFOs while they make a Grilled Pizza and their version of Pork and Beans under the stars. Finally, they reach Roswell, N.M., and discover Chef Toddzilla and his out of this world Zilla Burger and Cheescake Bombs.
