Last week, Food Network launched The Great Food Truck Race: Lunch Is On Us campaign, with Korilla BBQ and Devilicious Food Truck each serving out 100 free lunches this past Friday in New York City and San Diego, respectively.

Fans that waited in line on Friday for Korilla BBQ got to choose anything off their menu, including their famous burritos. Over on the West Coast, fans were treated to Devilicious’ decadent butter-poached lobster grilled cheese sandwiches.

“This has been a great experience — such an incredible turnout,” said Eddie from Korilla BBQ. “We’re ready to make 200-300 meals today, possibly 500 including dinner.”

So what’s it like to wait in line with more than 100 fans? Korilla BBQ’s super fan @gillang said that even though he was lucky ticket number 84, he only had to wait 15 minutes. “I waited for Food Network to Tweet the secret location of Korilla and then I rushed over with my friend,” he said as he waited for his Spicy Pork and Bacon Kimchi order.

Join the fun: On Sunday night, immediately following each episode of The Great Food Truck Race, fans visit Food Network’s Facebook page to see which city and food truck will host the next Friday lunch. Throughout the rest of the week, Food Network posts clues to the location of the food truck on Twitter. Finally, on Friday at 11 a.m. local time, @FoodNetwork Tweets the final location. At noon, the first 100 people in line receive a free lunch.

      They were accused of "stuffing the till", i.e. claiming they made more money than they did lagit, what FN said is they stuffed the till by +$2700, not having the reciepts to back it up.

      As each weeks total take is added to the contests cumalitive intake, Korilla, having a bad week, must have felt they were in the bottom tier ,and padding the till would keep them from elimination.

      It's a shame they allowed their greed for the contest reward ($100k) overrule their morals, and got themselves eliminated for it. Whats even worse is they did it in such a public forum, now they and their family and friends have to bare the shame of cheaters.

    How was the Hodge-Podge guy rude when Corilla got eliminated for cheating?

  4. Kristen says:

    First year I've watched and was enjoying it somewhat, but was very upset by one thing. During the challenge where they went into the woods to hunt for their own mushrooms, Tyler never once said "Don't try this at home!" Foraging for mushrooms without knowledge can be a dangerous activity, and they made it look like anyone could head out into the woods and come home with chanterelles, like they were shopping in a grocery store. They had no expert on hand to identify the mushrooms to ensure they were edible (or if they did, they did not choose to expend screen time on them), and never once mentioned that caution was needed. This was incredibly irresponsible on the part of Food Network.

      People who have brains realize you need to know what type of mushrooms grow in the area and what the dangerous ones are. You can buy books or get them from the library to figure out which ones in your area are safe ones.

  6. It is appropriate time to make a few plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this publish and if I may I wish to counsel you some fascinating things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write subsequent articles regarding this article. I desire to read more things approximately it!

    Well you certainly didn't see the show. Korilla got disqualified.

    Amazing for the price or amazing in any price. Korean BBQ is ok but it's certainly not something I would aim for when I'm hungry for food. Whenever I'm in Manhattan, I head down to Big Wing Wong. They got the best food for the price. More varieties also. Over there, I get quality pork, chicken, duck and other type of meat. The Korilla stuffs may taste good but if they use enough sugar and MSG, any crap that Korilla put out will taste good. But is it really good for you??
