This particular restaurant came to my attention in an article from Only In Your State, it focused on an eatery that was first built in New Jersey while President Washington was in office. Actually, President Washington was just finishing his time as President when the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn and Tavern were built in Bergen County in 1796, making it 226 years old and still serving patrons here in Jersey.

Amazing to think how much has changed in New Jersey since this establishment was first built by Andrew Zabriskie for his son. It was originally a family home before becoming a tavern. It sits in the historic town of Ho-Ho-Kus which was founded in 1698, 324 years ago, a true piece of American history.

Could George Washington have had dinner at the Inn? Possibly. The restaurant was a favorite of President Richard Nixon. Stop in and try special dishes like Devils on Horseback, the Zabriskie Burger, Oysters Rockefeller, and more.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
