Let me introduce you to a pub worth road-tripping for, Whittle's Pub & Grub in the small town of Eldon, Missouri. You may have never heard of Eldon before (I hadn't either before researching Whittle's Pub & Grub), but it is located just north of Osage Beach and the Lake of the Ozarks just off Highway 54. Whittle's Pub & Grub won Missouri's Best Pub Food award in 2023, now I have never been to Whittle's but from their menu, I can tell why it won the award.

The menu consists of items like Spicy Corn Nuggets and Tater Kegs which are jumbo tater tots stuffed with cheese and other things. They have tons of different burger and sandwich options like Roast Beef N' Cheddar, the Buffalo Burger, the Whittle's Club, and of course, their iconic Giant Prok Tenderloin Sandwich that can be served original or cajun style. But if you are looking for something lighter Whittle's has Salads, Wraps, Steaks, and Fish to suit your needs. To see the full menu at Whittle's Pub & Grub click here!

Anytime a small town pub wins a state-wide award like "Best Pub Food" beating g out the pubs in St. Louis, Kansas City, and Columbia, then you know it is a place worth taking a trip to. Or maybe just make plans to pull off the highway before you get into the Lake of the Ozarks the next time you are traveling down there!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
