CHICAGO (CBS) – For some, local food is the most important identifier for a human being.

What you eat can easily define who you are and where you’re from.

But, out of all the food choices across America, which local treat is better than the rest?

Texas’ barbecue brisket? Florida’s key lime pie? Massachusetts’ clam chowder?

… Montana’s bull testicles?

According to Deadspin, it’s Illinois’ Chicago-style/deep-dish pizza.

Deadspin admits the process for deciding this wasn’t exactly well planned out.

In fact, author Albert Burneko described the process as, “Rigorously scientific (not), ardently researched (nope), and scrupulously fair (not even a little bit): this is the Great American Menu!”

Still, whether the process was well thought out or not, the article will leave many Chicagoans under the impression that Albert knows what he’s talking about.
