Best Chili in the U.S.
What began in the 1950s as a place to buy firewood has developed into one of the most sought-after barbecue joints in the Midwest. For its storied burnt-end chili, Woodyard stews three types of beans (black, red and kidney) with paprika and cayenne, and stir in crisp-tender burnt ends from barbecued beef briskets. Order it by the cup or bowl; just leave room for brisket, ribs and pulled pork. woodyardbbq.com
