If you’re American this list will be no surprise – it’s basically a buffet of patriotism. If not, buckle your seat belts because you’re about to be force fed a whole lot of ‘Merican cuisine.
Hot Dogs – Ball Park, Sabrett, Hebrew National, Oscar Meyer, Nathan’s. If you can name five brands of encased meat off the top of your head, that’s American.
Hamburgers – You know it’s American when the French can’t pronounce it.
French Fries – Speaking of the French … fries are ours. As are everything under that umbrella: tots, freedom fries, sweet potato fries, zucchini fries. Take something, cut it into strips, drop into a deep fryer and boom! instant America.
Wings – Name the last Super Bowl party you went to that didn’t have wings? I rest my case.
Bacon – Everything is better with bacon … and I’m not just talking food. Think about it.
Beer – It’s called a liquid diet, and it’s delicious.
Pizza – I’m pretty sure millions of Italian college kids don’t live solely off pizza and beer for four years of their lives. Guess who does? ‘Mericans.
BBQ – Take whatever you’re looking at right now and throw it in a smoker. Come back in 12 hours and I guarantee it will taste delicious.
Steak – Knock its horns off, wipe its ass and bring it to the table.
Nachos – Basically any of the above foods mixed with cheese and tortillas. It’s nice at night and will destroy you in the morning. That’s the American way.
