First, they hit up Cheeky's in Palm Springs, California, where owner Tara Lazar told them all about their bacon flights, where they pick five different flavors and switch them up every week.

She explained, "I like different kinds of bacon, and I didn't want to have to choose."

It was time to taste all the goodness, including the miso butter and rosemary sugar bacon. Yep.

Steven said, "Holy crap. That's, like, the best slice of bacon I've ever had. I can die happy now."

Their next stop was at Manuela in downtown Los Angeles, where they would sample one helluva good-looking BLT.

It's a restaurant with a Spanish flair. Chef Christian Truong explained it's not exactly Tex-Mex, but it's along those lines.

Both Andrew and Steven were instant fans. They were so impressed, Steven even apologized for saying that bacon was overrated earlier.

Andrew said, "This bacon is at the perfect point between crisp and tender."

Executive Chef Johnny Wooh explained that he serves omakase style.

That means he serves the best food around the pork and constantly adjusts the tastes in the dishes throughout the meal depending on what you're digging. "If you like the course, I just take the flow."

At the end of their cross-country bacon-tasting extravaganza, Andrew's "Worth It" choice was Manuela, while Steven's was Cheeky's.

And, most importantly, they confirmed that there's really no wrong way to cook (or eat) bacon.
