Got foodie goals this year? TheDailyMeal.com evaluated all of its "best-of" lists for the year to create a best-of-the-best for the year.
"There’s no shortage of amazing things to eat and drink in the U.S.A.," the publication writes, "and we’re pleased to present our first-ever complete guide to the best food and drink in every state."
In Illinois, the guide isn't bound to Chicago, going outside city limits for its chili and barbecue picks.
"While restaurant powerhouse Chicago hosts such crown jewels as Grant Achatz’s The Aviary and Alinea, Brendan Sodikoff’s Au Cheval, and Maurie Berman’s legacy Superdawg," the editors write, "southern and central Illinois are home to some of the country’s best chili, ribs, and even spaghetti and meatballs."
