Hubcap Grill stars in a funny new food TV show
Hubcap Grill was more crowded than usual on Monday's lunch shift, as burger fans jostled for space with a camera crew brought in to get a taste of the burger madness.
They were filming a new show called America's Best Bites, set to premiere in fall 2011 on local Tribune channels across the country, including KIAH 39 in Houston. The cameraman described America's Best Bites as similar to Diners Drive-In and Dives, but better and funnier. Host Ted Brunson (along with Natalie Forte) got behind the counter at Hubcap and mingled with diners ranging from construction workers to suited businessmen.
And in case a burger joint doesn't say Texas enough, the crew even captured a trio of policemen on horseback who had congregated outside.
