For the past few years, one Cedar Falls restaurant has been making a name for itself at one of the most prestigious (and delicious) contests in the state.

Pizza Fest, a one day event in Ankeny, celebrates all things cheesy and gooey. The state's biggest pizza party has taken place in Ankeny for the past six years. Pizza and food vendors from all over the state come together for a day of pizza tasting and fun activities.

This summer will be the seventh annual Pizza Fest. At last year's event one Cedar Falls restaurant ended up taking home several titles.

Vendors at this event can enter their pizza/restaurant into multiple categories to be considered for titles and awards including; Best of the Fest and Best Pizza-Like Creation.

And there were plenty of events for the public, including a kid's pizza dough tossing contest and a pizza box folding contest. One Cedar Falls eatery won big at this festival for the second time and continues to carry a pretty prestigious pizza title.

Chad's Pizza a Cedar Falls staple was named Best of the Fest. Located at 909 W 23rd Street in Cedar Falls, Chad's is open seven days a week. This is the very same award that the restaurant staff won the year before.

Congratulations to the reigning champions!

There are plenty of other restaurants to check out in the Cedar Falls area, especially in the historic downtown area. Several restaurants have opened in Downtown Cedar Falls over the past two years.

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.
