Part of the fun of being a commercial driver is experiencing what life is like for people in other parts of the country, and new cuisine is something you can experience without even knowing anyone in the area. You’ll find different types of pizza in different areas, and you might enjoy coastal areas’ phenomenal seafood or the South’s brilliant barbecue. If you’re heading out on the road, read on and learn about some famous regional specialties.

Pizza Styles
Chicago and New York City are two of the most famous cities in the United States, if not the world. They’re both known for their huge populations and rich culture, but they also both have very different takes on pizza. New York slices of pizza are relatively thin, and they’re easy to eat on the go. Chicago slices, on the other hand, are deep dish and meant to be eaten with a fork and knife. There has been a perpetual debate about which one is better, but you’ll have to try both types to make your own decision.

Seafood by the Coast
Coastal areas like Plymouth or Provincetown are chock full of restaurants that specialize in seafood that has been corralled right off the shore in the local area. If you’re a fan of seafood and you find yourself in a harbor or port town, you’ll want to stop by one of these restaurants and fill up on some local seafood to see what all the fuss is about.

Barbecue in the South
There’s no place like the South for barbecue. If you’re heading down the coast, you’ll have to grab some pork in the Carolinas. Alabama is also known for its smoked meats, while Tennessee boasts some of the greatest slow cooked pork ribs.
