When some people think about delicious restaurants, they think big city, elegant, and pricey. However, some of America's best spots to stuff your face are in small towns. Ever watch Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives? It's those culinary-creative places that are the most popular.

I think we can all agree that vacation is not vacation unless good food is involved.  Trying new places and foods to eat is exciting and memorable. Next time you plan a vacation around food destinations, consider these delicious spots in mind. The Daily Meal just released America's best small town restuarants for 2013 and there is one special city you will be pleased to see on the list.

  • Rockland, Maine

  • Richmond, Virginia
  • Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow, New York
