On his four state swing through the Redneck Riviera the star stopped by Morgan City Louisiana, Pensacola, Florida and the original home of Mardi Gras Mobile, Alabama to name a few.  It is a great snap shot at some of the things at stake thanks to the BP/Obama Oil Spill.

Some Third Coast specialties Zimmern samples are nutria (giant rodents), squirrel, turducken (a chicken stuffed inside a duck that is then stuffed inside a turkey), head cheese, pig's brains, fried pickles, mullet roe, and alligator.  Among the Louisiana hotspots he visits are Hebert's Specialty Meats, Soop's Restaurant and Cochon Restaurant.  In Mississippi he make stops at Leatha's Bar-B-Que and Serendipity Deli and Restaurant.

While in Alabama the host attempts the raw oyster eating record at legendary Wintzell's Oyster House in downtown Mobile then crosses Mobile Bay for a taste of gator at the Wash House Restaurant.  On the fringes of the world's largest naval base, Pensacola Naval Air Station, Andrew is treated to grouper throats and gazpacho salad at the Fish House Restaurant then at Chet's Restaurant he samples the many aspects of a favorite local fish called mullet including their gizzards.
