Top 5 Bar Foods in America
#5: Dirt Wings — J. Timothy's Taverne
You'll never find wings quite like the Dirt Wings at J. Timothy's Taverne in Plainville, Conn. The technique of double-frying and double-saucing is what makes them special. Once requested that way by a customer named Dirt, the wings caught on and the rest is history. Now customers can't stop ordering them, and the numbers prove it: The restaurant sells 4,000 pounds of wings every week.

#4: The Miltown — Milwaukee Brat House
For the best brat sandwich, head to Milwaukee Brat House in Milwaukee. The Miltown starts with Usinger's bratwurst poached in beer, then grilled to develop a crispy, charred skin. It's served in a pretzel bun and topped with grilled onions and mushrooms, and sharp cheddar cheese. And to wash it all down, order a beer and get two — they're always two for one.

#3: Irish Nachos — J. Gilligan's Bar and Grill
Dallas Cowboys fans don't have to go far to get their post-game food fix. Just 10 minutes southwest of the stadium is J. Gilligan's Bar and Grill in Arlington, Texas. Here the Irish Nachos draw everyone's attention. Sliced and fried potatoes get topped with aged cheddar, and the toppings include bacon, tomato, onion and jalapeno. If you don't want to drive yourself to the stadium, there's always the restaurant's shuttle bus.

#2: Baby Back Riblets — Buckley's
You don't have to be a Seahawks fan to enjoy the Baby Back Riblets at Buckley's in Seattle. These St. Louis-style ribs are packed with spices and brown sugar before being tightly wrapped in foil, which locks in moisture during baking. Then they're cut into individual riblets, deep-fried and coated in Thai sesame sauce. You'll be licking your fingers before you're even done.

#1: Animal Style Frites — The Greenhouse Tavern
There's no reason that fries can't be gourmet. At The Greenhouse Tavern in Cleveland, the Animal Style Frites were inspired by Quebec's poutine, but these are far more unique. Twice-fried fries get topped with mozzarella cheese curds, then rich beef gravy, pork belly lardons and sunny-side-up fried eggs. You won't want to go anywhere else to get your fix after the game.
