Bet you didn’t know there was a royal family of chili, but the residents of Des Moines named the original owner of this classic drive-in the Chili King, and the rest is history. Obviously, the name of the game is chili, but Guy also recommends the Tenderloin — a Des Moines staple made from tenderized fried pork shoulder. Try it all without ever having to leave your car.
