When Food Network star Alton Brown traveled the country earlier this year on a 46-city lecture and performance tour, he got restaurant recommendations everywhere he visited. "These were all places that fans put pretty high up on their list," he says. "When you're eating there, you very much feel like a part of the community." Brown, who's also a best-selling author and James Beard Award winner, shares some all-American favorites, perfect for a July Fourth holiday weekend trip, with Larry Bleiberg for USA TODAY.

His top tamale picks: the Santa Fe, with pork loin, green chile sauce and cheese; and the Chile relleno, with green chiles stuffed with cheese, and wrapped in a roasted red pepper. 520-305-4760; tucsontamale.com
