Dining has changed dramatically in the past year, but despite recent shutdowns and restrictions on the service industry, the best food in America is stronger (and more interesting) than ever before. If you're packing up the car for one of the best U.S. road trips, be sure to pull over often to experience the regional specialties that make our 50 states so special. Cruising through Ohio? Tuck into a messy bowl of three-way chili. Heading south for the winter? Stop off for a traditional Cuban sandwich in Miami. Hungry in Idaho? A scoop of Huckleberry ice cream should do the trick. Consider this guide your road map to tasting your way through the best food in America, one dish at a time—from fresh seafood and decadent desserts to the best BBQ in America.
