It's hard for me to pick favorites when it comes to food, so I think I will break it into categories to make my decision a little easier.
Appetizers: Fried Pickles - If you have never had the opportunity to try this deep-fried delight, allow me to explain. Dill pickles are sliced long ways into thin strips, covered in batter and fried. You usually dip them in a spicy ranch sauce of some sort. And they rock. While I love Buckner's, The Hangout takes the top prize for the best I've ever had. Behold...
Entree: I'm game for pretty much anything Italian, but my favorite has to be lasagna. It's all the best things about Italian food rolled into one.
Dessert: Ice cream. I especially love this stand near St. Louis that makes concretes that are to die for.
I do have a special place in my heart for any potato dishes. I'm all kinds of German that way. But, I'm a pretty easy girl to please. (As evidenced from my ever-expanding back side!)
