Not saying that the food you'll eat around these next few weeks won't make you full but you know it's not going to be your first choice.

Maybe I'm just projecting here but if it's not pizza or popcorn it's BBQ ribs and when I'm talking about ribs I'm only getting them from top-tier restaurants.

That's why I was super excited to see a legendary Chicago place on the list of restaurants featuring the Absolute Best Ribs in the US that I have yet to try.

Mashed.com:

Not many rib joints score even an entry in the famously elitist Michelin Guide, let alone a coveted star. But the Twin Anchors restaurant — a Chicago institution since 1932 — makes it into the handbook's snooty pages. Twin Anchors is designated with L'Assiette Michelin, or the Michelin Plate, which indicates a restaurant that serves 'quality food.'

High praise from Michelin for Twin Anchors while also mentioning "to throw a quarter in the jukebox and get saucy with a slab of their legendary ribs in one of the curved booths."

On Yelp, Twin Anchors is rated a 4.1 out of 5 and Elvylene Y. said "The ribs are off the bone tender and flavorful. It has the right hint of smokiness to it and with the sauce, it was pure heaven."

However, a TripAdvisor reviewer, Kathy D. had a different experience at Twin Anchors saying they have "very average ribs" and "can think of a dozen other places that have better ribs."

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
