From legendary brisket nachos in Texas to an award-winning rack of ribs in Georgia, every great restaurant has that one dish you just have to have. These are the true MVPs -- most valuable plates -- in the nation.
We're firing up like an inferno and hitting a variety of dishes across the United States that have all the flame in their game! In Santa Monica, California, a burger joint is putting heat to their meat with a sauce made from guava and habanero peppers. A Charleston, South Carolina, barbecue pit turns low-and-slow brisket into a fiesta of flavors and a restaurant in Los Angeles torches everything they touch. There's a fire burning in a globe-trotting spot in Washington, DC, and a San Diego pizza joint makes waves with its wood-burning oven. We check out a spot in Nashville's red-hot restaurant scene and try a flaming dessert served in New York City. Finally, a San Diego restaurant flame-grills dreamy meats from their 22-ounce bone-in ribeye to their 14-ounce dry-aged pork chop.
