Junk Food Flip follows Bobby Deen and Nikki Dinki as they travel the country looking for the most-delicious guilty pleasures that they can flip into lighter dishes that are still indulgent and taste great but can be eaten every day. When they find the right dish, Nikki and Bobby issue a challenge to the owners of the restaurant that created it: If people think their version is as delicious as the original, then it goes on the menu. If not? The owners get bragging rights ... and cash. The two dishes then go head-to-head in a fun-filled showdown where a hungry crowd of locals determines which version they enjoy the most.
