Coney dogs, pizza & more: Michigan ranks 11th for best food in US

(WXYZ) - Michigan sure has good eats, at least that's according to Thrillist. 

The online publication released a list of states ranked by food earlier this month and Michigan came in at number 11. 

The Thrillist panel had this to say about the Mitten's cuisine:

"It's weirdly the original home of the coney hot dog, enormous pasties (the meat pies, not the stripper nipple covers), and the currently hot, always-square Detroit-style pizza, not to mention the fact that Mitten-born Little Caesars and Domino's more or less defined American takeout pizza as we know it. The Detroit Metro area also has a massive wealth of Polish, Greek, and Middle Eastern food, while Traverse City and Grand Rapids are fast becoming food destinations unto themselves (the Yoopers have it low-key going on too). BBQ and soul food, too, are plentiful in the lower half of the state. Additional points for the state's farmer’s market cred, and for its wealth of fish fries and venison chili. Minus points for losing your appetite when you see a shitload of deer splattered on the road en route to actually eat that chili."
