I realize dining out might not be on your mind as restaurants nationwide are required to shift their business practices as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. While the US is nowhere near as old as many other countries in the world, there's still plenty of history to be found, especially when it comes to food. From inns and taverns that have been around since the Revolutionary War to restaurants that were prominent watering holes in the days of the Wild West, every state has a unique story regarding its oldest restaurant.
