75. Corn on the Cob at Shorty's Bar-B-Q

A Miami institution since 1951, Shorty's Bar-B-Q is as famous for their picnic-style corn on the cob as for their baby back ribs. The yellow corn is served steaming hot in a styrofoam tub, drenched in bright butter and pierced with wooden sticks. Each bite bursts with buttery goodness. It's definitely not a dish for the diet-inclined. You can order the corn without the butter, but why?
