Chowdown Countdown 101-81

We're kicking off our list of the best chow down joints in the country! In this first hour of 101 Tastiest Places to Chowdown, we'll discover the best lobster shack in Maine, the official BBQ capital of Texas and a sausage lover's dream in Ohio. And if that isn't enough to whet your appetite, we've got a decadent buffet of never ending chocolate, the lip-smackingest fried chicken in New Orleans and a hefty burger in Atlanta topped with practically anything you can think of!
