Great Food Truck Race Finale (spoilers)

The Grill 'Em All guys beat the Nom Nom truck to win the Great Food Truck race on The Food Network. Each team had to earn $500 in the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Brooklyn and $1,000 in Manhatten. The burger guys got out to a good start in the Bronx by parking next to a bar while the Nom Nom truck got a later start and went to Yankee stadium and nobody even noticed them after the game. Nom Nom won all of the privious races in the first 5 cities, but not the last one where it really counted.

  1. I think in the end both Trucks got a lot of free publicity from this competition. I would be interested to see the % of hits increase on the trucks websites and % increase in business since the competition began.

      On the nom nom website they say how they used to do 250 customers during a lunch service but after being on this show, they now get up to 400-500 customers.

          i'm really happy Grill 'Em All won. i was sick of seeing Nom Nom win every challenge, and i'm glad the underdogs pulled it out!
