Travel Channel's Burger Land to Film Latin Burger and Taco
George Motz is featuring Latin Burger.
The Travel Channel
Have you ever eaten a burger that was so good you remembered it fondly years later?
Apparently that happened to author, television host, and burger fan George Motz. Motz was in Miami and ate a Macho burger from Latin Burger and Taco food truck about two years ago and fell in love with the meaty blend of Argentine chorizo and ground chuck. He's been back since, seeking out the truck for a burger fix whenever he visits.
So, when curating his Travel channel show, Burger Land, Motz made
sure Latin Burger's macho was one of the featured sandwiches. Latin
Burger, by the way, is the first food truck to be featured on the show,
alongside iconic restaurants like White Rose System in Linden New
Jersey and Pete's in Prairie de Chien, Wisconsin (which has been serving
burgers since 1906).
Latin Burger owner Jim Heins told Short
Order when he received a phone call from producers he was shocked.
try to do my own thing and just make some good burgers. I've met George
Motz a few times when he's eaten at my truck, but for him to single out
Latin Burger as worthy of a spot on his show means a lot to me. I mean,
the man's literally written the book on burgers in America."
Filming will take place Monday, January 21, at Bayfront Park over several
hours, starting around lunchtime. Check Latin Burger's Twitter page for
