The chicken sandwich has had entire documentaries dedicated to it, so it’s no surprise it’s on the list. We do love our crispy, breaded chicken in this country.

3. Mac And Cheese

This quintessential pasta dish is about as American as you can get. We serve it to our kids, eat it when we need comfort, and cook it fast from a box when we’re in a hurry. So it’s no wonder we have it delivered as well.

4. Sushi

Americans are obsessed with coffee in ways other countries aren’t. We have created an entire customization menu for a simple cup of coffee that most other countries shake their heads at, and we have those quad-shot, triple pump, mocha, oat milk, less whip, cold brew lattes delivered.

7. Breakfast Sandwich

We all have busy mornings where we just need to get out the door or weekend mornings where we don’t want to even set foot in the kitchen unless it’s for a cup of coffee. So it makes sense that the humble breakfast sandwich makes the list.

8. Veggie Burgers

While this one may come as a bit more of a surprise, it shouldn’t, given that vegetarian and vegan eating is on the rise.

9. Tacos And Burritos
