Best American Foods

List Criteria: Vote for the best American foods

List of the best American foods, as ranked by food lovers and critics. You’ve probably heard the phrase “as American as apple pie” despite the fact that its origins can be traced back to England. That’s because so much of American culture is appropriated from dozens of different cultures due to our melting pot of different types of people. So when it comes to American food, many of the American food staples have a history in other countries. Yet these tasty foods have become quintessential American dishes. Still, there are many foods (like corn dogs!) that have their origins within the USA.

 

Some of the foods on this list came from other countries and eventually evolved into what we know today, such as the cheeseburger. Other foods on this list are designed to seem like they’re from other countries but are actually created in America, like fortune cookies. Many of the foods on this list are tied to American traditions, like s’mores with camping and hot dogs with cookouts. Often traditional American foods are tied to a certain state or region, like with the Philly cheese steak or Chicago deep dish pizza.

 

What are the best American foods? This list features the tastiest foods that are considered American and are deeply tied to USA traditions. If your favorite American dish or US food specialty isn't on the list of American foods, make sure to add it to show your pride for food and country.
