On Tuesday, January 22, three Detroit eateries were featured on Destination America’s new TV show UNITED STATES OF BACON.
With Americans gobbling up more than 1.7 billion pounds of bacon each year, Destination America brings bacon buffs what they crave with an all-new series, UNITED STATES OF BACON. Each episode features hog-wild host, Chef Todd Fisher, as he road trips to cities across America in search of the most mouth-watering, stomach-growl-inducing, sensory-overloading bacon creations kitchens have to offer.
Stops in metro Detroit include:
- Union Woodshop, a BBQ joint that turned their love for pigs into an all-pork sandwich,
- Vinsetta Garage, the oldest garage east of the Mississippi, now restored as a restaurant with a bacon-obsessed chef who’s concocted the Macon Bacon Burger featuring four different types of bacon,
- Jacoby’s, a place that proves bacon obsession has no frontiers with their Beef and Bacon Rouladen, a special German combination of bacon and steak.
