Chowdown Countdown 40-21

We're getting so close to the #1 spot on our countdown, we can almost smell it! Mmm... But for now we're still counting down more of the country's best places to chow down. Numbers 40-21 are chock full of some of America's most iconic eat joints! We see a Midwestern frozen custard that licks the competition and head over the bridge to get a taste of real Brooklyn-style pizza. Also come with us as we tear into famously finger-licking ribs in Memphis, settle a decades-old debate over the best lobster roll in New Hampshire and find out how President Obama likes his chili!
