32. New York — The Garbage Plate from Nick Tahoe Hots

instagram.com

It is a beautiful edifice. Half the plate is home fries, and the other half is macaroni salad. Then top it with any meat you want, like a cheeseburger or a hot dog or a sausage, and then smother it in their special secret meat sauce. You then cover it in mustard and ketchup and then shove it down your face. It is a caloric carpet bomb and should not be missed.

instagram.com

It’s a mix of all the sodas, some pickle juice, and a few pickles.
