Thrillist came up with 101 dishes that changed America when they came about. All of these have become staples on many menus here in America. What surprised me the most is how long ago some of these dishes came to be!

Here are just a few of the highlights in my opinion:

  • The hot dog in 1916 
  • the Reuben sandwich in 1920 
  • The cheesesteak in 1930
  • Chocolate chip cookies in 1936 
  • Prime rib in 1938
  • Fried chicken in 1940
  • Deep dish pizza in 1943 
  • Nachos in 1943 
  • Filet-O-Fish in 1962 
  • Buffalo wings in 1964 
  • Key lime pie in 1968 
  • Loaded potato skins in 1974 
  • Chicken and waffles in 1975 
  • Tableside guacamole in 1984
  • Bloomin' Onion in 1988
