The competition began filming in Texas, making pit stops along the way to Fort Myers in places like Panama City before arriving downtown.

The trucks then shifted to First Street to begin setting up for the competition and filming.

Onlookers are encouraged by the production team to interact with the competitors, try their food, and possibly be filmed for the season finale.
