Ohio food: dead last
Ohio food: dead last

The website Deadspin.com released a list ranking the signature foods from all 50 states in the U.S. They only picked ONE food per state, which doesn’t seem fair but I guess if what was selected rose to the top with any given state then THAT’S what you’re known for be it good or bad.

I can’t argue with a few from the Top 5. Chicago-style deep dish pizza from ILLINOIS. Whether its from GIORDANO’S or GINO’S can be debated, but not the deep dish part of the statement. It’s the best. Shrimp and Grits from SOUTH CAROLINA. Without a doubt. Though if you’re looking for that taste in Columbus, Ohio check out RIVAGE in Worthington. The chef is from there and does an amazing job with that dish. Gumbo from LOUISIANA. Yup. I’ve had it there and have never tasted better.

So what’s OHIO’S claim to culinary fame? Cincinnati Chili. And it’s DEAD LAST on the list, and to be perfectly honest with you – I’m okay with that ranking. I’m not a big fan. I love chili, just not Cinci’s version of it. By the same token, I don’t think “chili” is the best representation of SIGNATURE FOOD in Ohio. C’mon… the Bahama Mama at Schmidt’s? The fried bologna sandwich in Waldo, Ohio? What?! Because we’ve got SKYLINE franchises all over Ohio that’s what you’re going with? Fine. I’ve got a Dagwood sandwich on the South Side of Columbus that would like a word with you.
