Mojo on the Go's Tony Fernandez received some more kudos for his traditional Florida cuisine, when Vice's Truckers in the Wild filmed the food truck owner cooking his famous gator bites and frog legs for a segment of the show.
Though Truckers in the Wild hosts Eli and Max traveled to Sawgrass Recreation Park in Weston then went frog gigging in the Everglades, using the park as a jumping off point, Miami got top billing for it's role as "city in which to freak out people while holding a live gator".
