What food would you drive 500 miles to eat?

The fast food fanatic is an unusual sort. Consider the Minneapolis guy who created a McRib Locator website , or the guy who asked the Chick-Fil-A cow to be his best man, or a guy who drove 500 miles just to eat at a Chipotle.

What food or beverage do you find worthy of a 500-mile car trip?

Arthur Bryant's in KC.

And the one on Brooklyn, not that fake BBQ place in the casino.

Rotisseria is CLOSED. Right? I could use some Mean Green Hot Sauce!

I'm flying to go to The French Laundry, does that count?

In this economy, no one wants to hear about anyone flying to Napa to eat at the French Laundry for a $300+ meal.

SURLY.Fortunately I don't have to drive that far, but if I still lived in Milwaukee  I would consider it often.

Jack in the Box.  Even if I'd have to drive down there with Michele Bachmann to get some... 

Yes, that good.

The best thing about Jack in the Box is their advertising, and thankfully YouTube can get me a fix.  Their burgers are very, very average.  You might as well have picked Arby's.

Very, very true.  After a few beers, they taste better.  However, I should've clarified...  The cake makes me want to drive down to get some.  The rest of the food, however... meh.
