One Michigan restaurant is getting a nod in Food & Wine's list of "32 Best Place To Go (And Eat) in 2019."

The list shines a spotlight on American cities and destinations with drool-inducing food scenes.

Although Michigan's cuisine of meat and potatoes doesn't make the state a breakout destination for exciting food, Frankenmuth's Bavarian Inn got special recognition as one of American's most popular destinations for fried chicken.
For Michiganders perhaps, this should come as no surprise. The famous classic chicken dinners have long been a place of interest for finger-lickin' good food. In fact, last year the family-owned restaurant served 850,000 people – a staggering number for such a small town, even for one that's a statewide destination for all things Christmas.
