Every year some of my family comes to visit me in Iowa, and every year I try to take them to at least one of my favorite local restaurants. We have SO much good food here in the Corridor that sometimes it's hard to choose!

According to the Food Network, there are certain foods that every person who steps foot in the state of Iowa should try. I came across an article titled: Hungry in the Hawkeye State: What to Eat in Iowa, and I'm happy to report that in my four years here, I've tried most of them! Here are some of the items that made the list:

  • The Breaded Pork Tenderloin
  • The Hot Beef Sandwich
  • The Original Maid-Rite Sandwich
  • Gas Station Pizza
  • Sweet Corn
  • Blue Bunny Ice Cream

Check out the rest of the list HERE.

If you met someone visiting Iowa for the first time, where would you tell them to go eat? Let us know in the comments!
