I was thinking about the Subway thread and I mentioned to my friend St.George (we both come from the Mid-west and go to school in Flagstaff) that you cannot find good food on the west half (not including Mid-west) of America, and if you do happen to find a place that makes good food, it cost an arm and a leg.
Everything from Poor Boys to BBQ to breakfast the east half of America can get down in the kitchen. However, it doesn't seem the west has the balls for it. Is this just an anomaly that I've seen in Arizona and California or is it really just that the west sucks at cooking?
Disclaimer: There are still a few cheap authentic Mexican joints that make good food.
