Huh? What root word are you talking about?

Tennessee @ #6, so not too bad at all. I was surprised they ranked the state so high.

California @ #1 was super predictable, as well as NY, #2.

Florida seemed way too low though. And some of the low blows dissing the states and food were funny, yet leads me to think those doing the judging are not the best go-to sources on this topic. LOL

If you could go back in time to when Colonel Sanders opened up his fried chicken restaurant in Corbin KY, it certainly was authentic. Of course, not anymore and hasn't been for a long time.

Where did your state come in at?
Do you feel the rating is fair...or that it should be higher or lower?
I think Texas should be number one or at least it is to me.

What Colorado has, but the article didn’t mention, is it’s famous for it’s lamb. It’s sourced to the best restaurants around the country.

As if that's a plus. Lets all eat cheap, greasy food and call it a Southern tradition.

Sure, but I thought that it was funny. Pennsylvania is #11? LOL. Maybe Philly, Pittsburgh, and the ethnic enclaves.

I guess that good food is what you like to eat. Where I grew up in PA, mom and church ladies made the best food.

My mom is Pennsylvania Dutch. I don’t see how that cuisine bumps Pennsylvania up to 11. Philly has major city dining but it’s not better than other major cities. I think middle of the pack is more appropriate.

I said the word “barbecue” came from an Indian cooking style, “barabicu” where they slow cooked pigs and fish over a fire. You took that to mean I was accepting barbecue could be meats other than pork. Except all I was referencing was the root of the term barbecue, not defining it. I let Samuel Johnson define it for me.

I’m good with California, New York, and Louisiana. New Mexico should be much higher. Santa Fe is a real foodie place. DC is a top city for dining that isn’t California or NYC. Illinois is #5 because of Chicago. Metro DC is at the same level but Virginia is way down the charts.

The list is really biased towards BBQ. If it didn’t have that bias, the rankings would be very different.
