I'm thinking Chicago here. In Denver we have a lot of Chicago influence in terms of street food. You can get Italian beef, Chicago hot dogs (dragged through the garden), a Chicago style sub at Fontana's Chicago subs, and of course the Chicago deep dish pizza at Old Chicagos.

... Because the other cities don't rely on the usual local munchies but more on proper dining experience?

Criteria:
1. Overall number of restaurants above the fast food level.

Whereever you can get a Paczki daily is the best city for food.

I love Paczki! I can actually get them daily at this place in South Boston called Baltic Deli: http://maps.google.com/maps?client=s...43593631890200

I can admit though that the Polish options here pale in comparison to the Midwest, especially Detroit.

I feel sorry for you, you have no idea what you're talking about. There are so many great restaurants here (both in SF and throughout the Bay) that I truly have not found rivaled in other cities I've been to. In regards to Mexican food (since this seems to be the only cuisine you have any opinion on up here), I have yet to make it to San Diego to try the Mexican food I've heard so much hype about my entire life. But I am aware how many OC and SD natives hate rice and beans in their burritos and consider it an abomination. Newsflash: its no less authentic as these are ingredients in Mexican cuisine; its just a different style than you are used to.

And "cheap filler rice" (you must be white) is a bad thing to you, but SD's french fries in their burritos are acceptable? The rice IS found elsewhere in CA, btw. Its found all over NorCal and I've had it in a burrito (an overrated one I might add) in Long Beach. You should exit your bubble once in a while and try something new.

Buffalo is a great city for Polish food. Milwaukee and Cleveland are pretty good too. Wilkes-Barre might be another one due to it's big Polish community.
