They say you find the best food at those "hole in the wall" places. It might look rough from the outside, but inside is your favorite meal.  LD's BBQ in East Troy, Wisconsin is home to the best BBQ in the state. Here's the kicker, LD's is located inside of a gas station.  I guess the standard of "gas station food" isn't what it used to be.

Only one hour from Rockford, this award-winning BBQ might be worth a road trip.  You can smell meats in the smoker as soon as you get off of the interstate.  The inside isn't that big, but the place still fills up with a line.
