For pizza, I come up with Chicago.
Starbucks isn't a type of food.
And as for biscuits, I suppose the British own the title on that one. But as far as the U.S., here's my take: If "rolls" are the same as "biscuits", then I'd give it to Sikeston, MO, hands down. Sikeston (population 17,059) is the original location of Lambert's Cafe-- widely known as "The Home of Throwed Rolls". That phrase refers to the fact that waitresses actually throw hot rolls to customers. Lambert's website claims that, last year, they baked a total of 2,246,400 individual rolls!

I've been going to Lamberts-Sikeston since I was a child. Those fabulous yeast rolls arent even remotely related to biscuits!

No I am talking about biscuits, i.e. buttermilk biscuits.



montgomery might be high, as they have a biscuit as a mascot. similar to other cities which have their actual mascot (miami hurricanes) (ohio state buckeyes) (florida gators)
