The series examines the history of American cooking and foods. Each episode details the particular foods' origins, key innovators, history, and evolution into modern cuisine. The series is subtitled "The Food That Built America" due to its reverence for food's place in American history and its impact on culture. The show is known for its nostalgia and general quirkiness, often including facts such as "Did you know Teddy Roosevelt took over 500 gallons of beer on an African safari?"

Marathons of American Eats aired regularly on Thanksgiving from 2006 through 2009.
