Restaurants popular for their amazing dish.
A single dish can soar over all others in popularity at a restaurant — maybe because it’s just amazing, maybe because the restaurant invented it, or maybe because it’s a regional specialty you can’t get anywhere else. Whatever the cause, it’s a solid move to order a restaurant’s most famous dish so you can see what all the hype is about. We scoured reviews and rankings by expert food writers and countless hungry customers to find out which restaurants across the U.S. are worth putting on the list for a visit someday just for a signature menu item.
Note: The pandemic may affect restaurant hours or operating status, so please check with each venue prior to visiting.
