I have traveled through many states and eaten at many diners and dives. The state that has the favorites on my list is Missouri. They have some of the most unique diners and dives that I have ever seen. The menus are impeccable. Some of the concoctions that these chefs come up with seem off the wall but are amazing in flavor and value. Another state that has great diners and dives is Ohio. There are many local “Mom and Pop” run places with family recipes that date back over a century. Ohioans all have their own favorite place to eat, and it’s not usually a chain restaurant. The locally owned and operated diners and dives offer up the best values, best flavors, and most fun atmospheres around. Ohio is full of small towns, these small towns have some of the very best food that I have ever eaten in my life. The last state in my favorites for best diners and drives is New Mexico. Their bold flavors and New Mexico Chiles bring out some real flavor in their authentic cuisine. Some of the best kept Mexican/Native American fusion secret recipes can be found all over New Mexico.
