You don't have to go very far to eat the best bar food in America, at least according to The Food Network, which named Greenhouse Tavern as having the top dish in the whole damn country.

The Tavern's Animal Style Frites rounded out the top spot on the list, beating out four other restaurants around the country. The rest of the list includes the Dirt Wings from J. Timothy's Taverne in Connecticut, The Miltown from Milwaukee Brat House, Irish Nachos from J. Gilligan's Bar and Grille in Texas and Baby Back Riblets from Buckley's in Seattle.

Here's what the network had to say about the frites.
