In each episode of Best in Chow, host Cris Nannarone, a veteran road warrior and standup comedian, scours restaurants, diners, food trucks and everything in between, to find the best burger, pizza or taco. It's a quest to find the top three contenders who will ultimately go to battle. Nannarone learns their trade secrets and discovers if their dish has what it takes to win the war.

In this week's premiere, Cris arrives in Hollywood and makes his first stop at O!Burger, where head chef Andy Soboil serves his certified organic Classic O!Burger. Next up, Cris meets up with George Ghaby at Rounds Premium Burgers famous for their American Classic Western Burger. Cris makes his last stop at the iconic Carney's to see if there is any truth to their motto. What makes this burger special is its chili topping - a top-secret family recipe. After scouring the Hills, Cris gathers nine local burger enthusiasts to taste them all and decide which burger will be crowned the "Best Burger in Hollywood."
