    The worst BBQ restaurant (and possibly worst restaurant) in America is in Sellersburg, Indiana.

    That's actually a great question, because it operates under two names. Rubbin' Butts and Rubbin' Tails. One restaurant, two menus. Rubbin' Butts is BBQ (highlighted by the "Pig-E-Chonga" a deep fried tortilla-wrapped pound of dry as shit minced pork butt). Rubbin' Tails is "sea" food. You can order from both, so the Pig-E-Chonga and a side of fried Cod Fish is an available option.

    NJ is waaaay more than diners. And what you say is true, many diners are trash but we have so many of them that even if half only served inedible shit the rest would more then make up for it. Honestly, it's impossible to declare a diner shitty until you've eaten there 3 or more times and sampled a spectrum of the menu. It's not like going to a steakhouse or a bbq joint, trying a steak or bbq and knowing after one meal if what they want to be known for is crappy.

    I resent the remarks about Wyoming and Montana serving freeze-dried steaks outside of one or two cities. They both have tons of independent steakhouses that will match the rest of the country’s best for a fraction of the cost, if not outright blow them out of the water. They don’t do smoked meats well but for a thick cut, free range, solid slab of meat, I’d put them up against anything.

    Also a great freshwater fish scene, and some good Mexican influences like CO. Outside of that it’s a lot of German/Polish/Scandinavian immigrant blandness though (other than a specialty shop here and there), so the rankings aren’t far off, but give credit where credit’s due.

    List is shit and has nothing to do with the order but rather many of the states listed have no explanation as to why they are ranked where they are or simply have highlights.

    Coastal MS is as good at food or better than anywhere in the country. The blending of Cajun, Asian, French, Deep South is just incredible. Huge Vietnamese population mixed with French Louisiana influence plus gulf seafood makes for an incredible area of food.

    Probably the best kept food secret in the country. An amazing pocket. If anyone is ever in the area tag me and I’ll put you some spots
