I will only write about places that I've had a great experience. There are so many local heroes around Adelaide and I want to try and share them all.

One of the newest faces to the Adelaide food scene, is Americana! Some clever cooks have been riding Harley's down Route 66 and taking the subway through Brooklyn, before returning home to Adelaide to bring us the best of the U.S.

Have your say on where you think Adelaide's Best American Food Joint is; In no particular order, here are 4 of my favourites.

Low & Slow American BBQ
There is a true cause for celebration, when a favourite food-truck changes gear and opens up a bricks and mortar eatery. Those who have followed Low & Slow American BBQ [food-truck] around Adelaide, no longer need to check social media for truck locations, as the team's new restaurant has been a flaming success.

Sneaky Pickle
Sneaky Pickle are another food truck to follow suit and set up a more permanent bricks and mortar eatery. Nestling their Southern American cuisine, quite fittingly in to their new inner-south dwellings, along Goodwood Rd.

Sneaky Pickle are complementing their amazing menu with a range of American beers and 'sodas' so you can get the whole culinary experience.

Over the years it's been a difficult run, trying to find real bagels in Adelaide - please note that a Bagel is more than just a bread roll with a whole in the middle. The bakers and entrepreneurs behind The Beigelry have stayed true to authentic craftsmanship of the historic baked-good and offer fillings from the traditional 'Lox' to the more modern 'Fat Elvis'.

What started as a little hole in the wall along Norwood Parade has fast become one of Adelaide's most popular burger joints. Last year saw the soft opening of their third location, proving that Norburger is so popular, that advertising of the new location wasn't necessary- we found it! What about that initial hole in the wall? Well it has now doubled in size, taking on the adjoining shop front to accommodate the flow of hungry patrons.

It's hard to go past the mystique of 'secret recipe buttermilk fried chicken' or the indulgence of a Royal burger, loaded fries or tater tots.
