Again thank you everyone for your recommendations and places keep them coming!
Well, I can't give you a best dish at the high end Italian places I gave because I always get something different when we go. We do, however, always order the prosciutto and melon appetizer at The Cellar, usually the carpaccio as well.

For Casa Maya, again, I usually order something different, but I have gotten the pork belly tacos a few times. My DH likes their pibil so he'll order something with a pabil filling fairly often. We always get their guacamole, sometimes the street corn appy.

Oh, another place, Paducah, KY, House of Grace. The California chicken salad is fantastic. I've eaten it for over 40 years. Sadly, I have to make it at home because we live so far away now, but when I go to Paducah, I always get it. The ice tea too that has mint leaves and white grape juice. If they have it, their version of an Italian Wedding Cake, pecans, coconut, cream cheese frosting.

Charleston, SC - One of our favorite places is Fleet Landing Seafood. Great seafood/southern dishes. Right on the Cooper River before it empties into the Atlantic, so the view are excellent. Affordable. Awesome service.

Default Steaks!

Jockos in Nipomo! It's in the San Luis Obisbo area in California. Make reservations, be very very hungry!

Also, while Redding, Ca. is basically a big truck stop of 100K people between Sacramento and Oregon, (but it's beautiful at the lakes!) Jacks Grill on California street is quite the experience! I think it opened in 1927 and it's a small place and half of it is a bar! The menu's been the same since forever too.
Warning, it's first come first serve and can be a pretty long wait on Friday and Saturday nights. If you go in summer, it will be HOT waiting outside. Redding is HOT!

Meant to mention that there are a number of road food travel forums that are fun to read even if you aren't traveling. Here's one that's on my list of favorites:

I never take a trip without reading what I can find about the local specialties.

Bernard's Mediterranean Restaurant
Eat anything there, but the sea bass is out of this world, just sayin'.
Tyler, Texas (NE Texas - between Shreveport, LA and Dallas, TX, about two hours from each - beautiful small city and gorgeous countryside around it)

Locally owned by a man who is from Marseilles, France.

In Yorktown, VA I really loved this place:
https://yorktownpub.com/
Good seafood and TRY THE BUTTERBEANS. You won't be disappointed. They are not very expensive either (none of the food, including the butterbeans - LOL).

Chez Phillipe at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis (check out the bar too - it's also fabulous - heck the whole hotel is fabulous). Spring for it and get the full 5 course (or something like that) meal:

Tupelo Honey is a terrific farm to table restaurant in Chattanooga, TN:

The Lobster Trap is excellent in Asheville, NC - surprisingly good seafood (not just shellfish - LOL):
https://thelobstertrap.biz/

Kilkenny's Irish Pub is excellent in Tulsa, OK:

The Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill in Sedona, AZ is delicious and fresh and has great views:

You can list any and every food type and even drinks as long as it something that you considered among the best tasting. Well any food except for shellfish since I am allergic to it, but outside of shellfish I do enjoy seafood.

All I ask is that you try to list restaurants that are not food chains. It defeats the purpose of traveling around the country to experience local cuisine’s when someone recommends a place like Applebee’s or 5 guys burgers because I can find those restaurants and the dishes they serve in every city; so why travel to taste them.

Outside of those two stipulations I hope that you were recommend anything that you consider the best tasting that you’ve had, it can be from some cheap hole in the wall place to a five-star restaurant that cost an arm and a leg; I care more about experiencing the quality of the food then I care about the price.

Anyway I am hoping that people all over the country will see this and list:

Your favorite food

The name of the restaurant that serves it

The city & state it’s in
German sausage and banana pudding-Jack Jordan's BBQ-Odessa, Texas.

Palm Palace (Mediterranean) - Ann Arbor, MI
Blufish Sushi - Glenview, IL (Chicago Suburb)
K-Rico Mexican Grill - Naples, FL
Saranellos (buffet style inside the Westin) - Wheeling, IL
Ronin Spoon Ramen - Northbrook, IL

All very good, although some are more "sit-down" style and take longer to prepare.

Yorktown Pub in Yorktown, VA. Get the butterbeans when they are in season - I know that sounds crazy but DANG. (They are in season now, I believe.)

Anyway, the added benefit is that you get to see Yorktown (be sure to tour the house where Cornwallis surrendered) and the Historic Triangle of Yorktown, Jamestown (great museum there) and Williamsburg!

The Pub is on the harbor and the harbor itself is a cool place in my opinion. I love me some Yorktown and some Tidewater Virginia.

Oops, just realized I already answered this - LOL. With the same answer. At least I'm consistent.
