A popular chain restaurant is being credited for having the best American comfort food in Virginia.

Love Food compiled a nationwide list ranking the best restaurant serving American classics in every state, which included Macado's as the top choice for Virginia.

"Fans simply know this place as the Do’s. But whatever you call it, Macado’s is a reliable spot for staples like loaded potato skins, burgers, mac 'n' cheese and sticky wings," Love Food wrote. "The first restaurant opened in 1978 in Roanoke and there are now several across the state (as well as one in West Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina), each decorated in the same nostalgic, eclectic fashion. It’s especially popular thanks to the reasonable prices, huge portions and home-style cooking."
