    I'd say Iowa should be tenderloins or pork chops over corn dogs.

    Yeah, when I saw NY Pizza at #22 and Chicago Pizza at #1, I rolled my eyes. But for some reason I kept reading, and when I saw that Skyline Chili was at #52, behind "being hit by a car," some of my faith had been restored to the author.

    If you're going to put Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza at #1, at least call it by its proper name: Chicago Style Round Lasagna. The guy just loves lasagna in round form.

    I was in Lexington, Ky and there was a Gold Star Chili by my hotel. I went in for lunch and I have to admit I had never heard of Cincinnati chili before. I wish I still never heard of it. That stuff was nasty. How bad is the food in Cincinnati if that is what they are known for ?

    Actually quite good. The carrots are grated and add a really good texture with a subtle flavor.

    Looks like Indiana got the tenderloins. At least they do them right. (Iowa style)

    I can't believe they put Montana Rocky Mountain Oysters at 25. They are tolerable, at best, if you are starving or at the end of a 12 pack and hitting on the rancher's daughter.

    Frigging homemade meat pies in Nebraska? Never had one/never heard of them. Thinking sweet corn, tenderloins, angus burgers. Who is this guy? Was he thinking Runza? And for the record, some of these things listed are worse than Cincy chilli.

    I agree with you and also think that it could have made for a funnier article. I know it's because of the fair and everything on a stick, but still, there are quite a few things I miss about Iowa, at the top of that list is a Tenderloin Sandwich.
