I must have missed this topic the first 8 or 9 times it came around. I am going to give two lists - one if I had answered it on time when first posted, and one to reflect my current Top 10 Haven't Beentas.

As of March 2007
Doe's Eat Place - attained Nov 2008 - Little Rock location
One of the Top New Haven, CT pizza joints - Hit Pepe's in August 2008
Bern's - Tampa, FL
Joe's Stone Crab - Miami, FL
Wilber's BBQ - Goldsboro, NC - January 2008
Stroud's - Kansas City, MO - June 2008
Red's Eats - Wiscassett, ME
Bobcat Bite - Santa Fe, NM
Dreamland BBQ - Feb 2008 in Mobile - would still like to go to Tuscaloosa
Tea Steak House - Tea, SD

Current
Bern's - Tampa, FL
Joe's Stone Crab - Miami, FL
Red's Eats - Wiscassett, ME
Bobcat Bite - Santa Fe, NM
Tea Steak House - Tea, SD
Bon Ton Mini Mart - Henderson, KY
Moonlite BBQ - Owensboro, KY
Lankford Grocery - Houston, TX
Bendtsen's Bakery - Racine, WI
Tony Luke's - Philadelphia, PA

I could probably easily come up with 10 or 12 more off the top of my head, but it will help to keep this list in flux over time.

Probably the place that I had most wanted to go, but did not before they closed was Uglesich's in New Orleans.

Oh...and these places deserve honorable mentions....

* Another New Haven Pizza joint, for comparison's sake. Ideally, either Sally's or Modern.
* A return to Hollyhock Hill, as I ate their by myself and think that the experience would have been very different had I been with a small group - or even one other.
* A return to LC's BBQ when I haven't gorged myself on so much other food that I couldn't enjoy a bite of it!

Travelin Man-
The obvious question is how many of these places have you been outside of, but they was closed?

Here is a really good thread that is worthy of reviving.  How is everyone doing on their lists?  I just recently crossed Pico de Gallo in AZ off of mine.

Travellin Man: Bobcat Bite is a fun place in Santa Fe. What makes it special is that it is really not in Santa Fe but a sort of dirt road right off I-25, six or seven miles out of Santa Fe. So its a free standing little place in the desert scrub. The burgers are pretty good, but the the funky ambience is even better. Many people prefer Harry's Road House a few miles closer to Santa Fe on the same road, but it is a bit too trendy while Bobcat's is real deal roadfood.

I crossed a bunch of places off my list this year, so it's hard to think of my next aspirations. My list of places I can think of offhand:
 
Mary Mac's Tea Room - Atlanta, GA
Hob Nob Hill - San Diego, CA
Central Grocery - New Orleans, LA
Tony Luke's - Philadelphia, PA
Gullah Cuisine - Mt. Pleasant, SC
 
And some foods I'd like to try, which I haven't identified a specific restaurant for:
Italian Beef
Oyster po-boy
Hoppel poppel
Pork tenderloin
Sonoran Hot Dog
Maryland Stuffed Ham
Philadelphia Cheese Steak
North Carolina barbecue trail

You can get your sour cream raisin pie at Lange's Cafe in Pipestone. :)

Man, I knocked out a good bit of my list.  I need to come up with a refresher now.

Here is a great thread once again worth reviving.  I was able to knock three more places off my list in 2013. 
 
EdSails-
Looks like you have a list on page one of this thread.  I know of at least one of those places you have visited, since I was there with you!  How is the rest of the list looking?

well, the downside is......
Haven't chipped it down yet. Been to City Market twice----once got there an hour late, the other time could still see the people inside cleaning up.
 
Haven't made it back to NOLA yet. 
 
Every time I go to Portland, I wind up at Pal's Shanty or the oyster farm in Newport (maybe you could stretch it since they are owned by Dan and Louis' and provide all their oysters). 
In New Haven, I've been to sally's so at least I did have a New Haven Pizza.
 
 
the upside is......
Instead of Luling city Market, I've been to Joel's BBQ twice. They were still open when City had closed.
I've gone to so many other good places I've done OK.

I'd say you have done better than just okay Ed!  I still haven't gotten to City Market, yet.
