US Regional Grub Battle Royal
Alright guys. I’m sick and tired of hearing about all the great places that I don’t get to enjoy. For that reason I’ve decided to create a tournament of sorts….a battle royal (with cheese if you will). I’ve divided the US into 4 regions as you can see above. These lines are not steadfast and can be open to your own interpretation.
I want to find the best of the best of the local joints. Not really the single units or the “Mom & Pops” but the chains that aren’t national (yet) and represent a certain region. For instance, for my area (West) I would nominate In-N-Out as the best regional burger joint. Let’s go beyond just food spots, let’s cover a few extras too.

To nominate your favorites leave in the comments the following:
Region (West, Central, Northeast or South)
Once we’ve got the nominations we’ll pit the regions against one another until we’ve got the best of the states! We’ll be doing head to head polls until we’ve got the best o’ the best for each category.
My nominations are as follows:
Region – West
Burger Joint: In-N-Out
Pizza Parlor: Pizza Party
Mexican Food: Del Taco
Grocery Store: Safeway
Soda/Drink: Martinelli’s (Sparkling Apple Cider)
Chip/Snack: Boudin Bakery (Sourdough)
Sub/Sandwich Shop: Togo’s
Wildcard: Fresh Choice (Salad & Soup Buffet)
