Chuck is hungry for a break from his daily grind. So he's heading to Mexico and cruising across the country in an open-air jeep looking for culinary adventures. He works a shift at a taco stand; he delivers sandwiches in Guadalajara; he ropes a cow with a group of Mexican cowboys; he goes deep-sea fishing; and he dives into sinkholes. From coast to coast, Chuck lives out once-in-a-lifetime experiences, meets awesome people and cooks and eats amazing, authentic food!
