Illinois grows more pumpkins than any other state and yet the "best" pie in the state according to Yelp, is a hand-held spicy pie...Here are the details on the "Best" pie in the Land of Lincoln...

Yelp released a list of the best pies in each state of the country and in states like Georgia you have the Peanut Butter Pie, Delaware has the Coconut Cream Pie, Maine has the Fresh Baked Blueberry Pie, and then Illinois has something called the Huevos Rancheros Hand Pie from a place in Chicago called Beard & Belly.

The Huevos Rancheros Hand Pie, according to the menu on Beard & Belly's website, is "Flaky pie crust filled with house-made Chicken chorizo sausage, white cheddar, scrambled egg, and salsa verde. Served with salsa verde for the dipping." Beard & Belly has more than just this hand pie on the menu, they also serve items like the B&B Cobb Salad, The Half Pint Burger, the Alabama Fried Chicken, and so much more.
