"Fast Food Mania" (TV show) is a culinary reality series on Destination America.

We've grown up with America's favorite treat — fast food. From beloved childhood memories to classic Americana, the art of quick and delicious fare represents some of life's greatest pleasures and often marks milestone moments. Destination America invites fans to celebrate gastronomy-to-go as "Fast Food Mania" dives into the pop culture world of fast food, digging into its cuisine, featuring its fanatics and exploring all the one-of-a-kind wonders it has to offer. The immersive tour de food will be led by the intrepid fast food aficionado, Jon Hein ("The Howard Stern Show" and "The Fast Food Show" on Sirius/XM) as he dines and decodes the world's most popular dishes.

The travel-packed and finger-licking series will not only look at awesome eats, but also offer up essential tips for navigating the ever-winding drive thrus and ordering secret menu items, as well as delve into never-before-seen test kitchens of some of America's favorite chains. You think you know all there is to know about the subject, but the series also reveals behind-the-scenes stories and little known facts, including answers to trivia questions such as "Who designed the signature red and white KFC bucket?" Bet you didn't know it was the owner of another popular fast food restaurant — Dave Thomas of Wendy's — who once operated one of the largest KFC franchises!

This season makes stops at beloved eateries such as Sonic, Dunkin Donuts, Dominos, Taco Bell, and the original hot dog stand by the sea, Nathan's Famous in Coney Island, New York. But it's not just about the legendary brands. We also uncover the up-and-coming chains making their mark, as well as hidden gems like Jet BBQ, a historic firehouse turned true drive-thru restaurant in Wichita, Kansas.
