Tag along as LA foodie blogger Tinger and her bff, Adam, road trip across Northern Nevada on the Loneliest Road in America—Hwy 50—in search of off-grid Nevada’s best food and drink. First stop is an hour outside of Reno at Frey’s Distillery, a true grain-to-glass operation, for Sagebrush Gin. Frey's uses plants native to Nevada to distill this drink that “tastes like Nevada smells after a rainstorm.”

Next, they head to Middlegate Station, a roadhouse dating back to the 1860s, when it used to operate as a horse changing station for Pony Express riders. Today, it serves the Monster Burger challenge. Do Tinger and Adam prevail? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Burgers behind them, they hit up the Lucky Spur Saloon to sample the famous Bunker Hill Bloody, then shoot over to Ely (pronounced "e-lee") to eat dessert inside a jail cell. Rounding out their trip in Baker, they dine on pizza made by the Brooklyn-born owners of Kerouac’s. Turns out the Loneliest Road in America is a foodie’s dream.
