Plot Synopsis

Comedian Josh Denny travels across the United States searching for outrageously large portions of food. In each half-hour episode, Josh travels to a different region of America, sampling the most ginormous dishes. On Friday, July 22, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered "Everything's Bigger in Texas," the pilot of GINORMOUS FOOD, with Josh out to prove that everything really is bigger in Texas as he travels to San Antonio to find some of the most outrageous dishes! First up is a two foot-long barbecue behemoth called the Big Mac Daddy at Smoke Shack, followed by a triple dose of cheesy goodness in the five-pound burger known as the Nacho Macho Burger from Broadway 5050. Then, topping it all off is a gotta-see-it-to-believe-it 62-inch pizza at Big Lou's. Five months later, Food Network debuted the official series premiere of GINORMOUS FOOD on Friday, January 6, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT. In the series opener, "Louisville's Epic Eats," Josh rides into Louisville to try his luck with a trifecta of magnificent meals. First, the Double Southern Belle at Mussel and Burger Bar, which sports fried green tomatoes, a full pound of black angus beef and several thick layers of pimento cheese. The Big Daddy Hot Brown at Gary's on Spring takes a famous Louisville dish and transforms it into a two-foot-wide, 10-pound masterpiece. Then, at the Come Back Inn, The Godfather makes a culinary offer he can't refuse: more than one and a half pounds of roast beef smothered in vegetables and marinara sauce, soaked in au jus, and served on a 12-inch roll.
On Friday, February 10, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered the season finale of GINORMOUS FOOD. In the season ender, "Cincinnati's Hometown Heroes," Josh rolls into Cincinnati, where local favorites are on the menu. Blue Ash Chili dishes out the No Freakin' Way, two and a half pounds of Cincinnati-style chili on top of two and a half pounds of spaghetti, piled high with shredded cheddar and a jalapeno bottlecaps. The city's German heritage is on display at Mecklenburg Gardens, where the Uber Terminator features an eye-popping 38-inch hot mettwurst sausage on a 36-inch bun. And Cincinnati's favorite breakfast sausage, goetta, adds a unique and delicious flavor to the 10-patty Cincinnasty burger at Bard's Burgers and Chili.
