So I've discovered that I have something of an obsession with regional American foods that I've never tried. This country is huge, and has accordingly spawned a number of unique dishes, tied to a particular region, state, or even city. It's crazy and awesome. Here's a (very) partial list of my experience. I invite you to speak to these if you can, and, just as importantly, add more! Brunswick stew (general South) Horseshoe sandwich (Springfield, IL) Chow mein sandwich (Fall River, MA) Muffuletta (New Orleans, LA) Italian hot dog (NJ) Hot Brown (Louisville, KY) Salt potatoes (Syracuse, NY) Skyline chili (Cincinnati, OH) Chicken Vesuvio (Chicago, IL) Pepperoni roll (WV) Garbage plate (Rochester, NY) Green chile cheeseburger (general Southwest) Seattle-style hot dog Red-eye gravy (general South) Beef-on-weck (western NY) Onion burger (OK) One thing I love is how the dishes that arose from the same kinds of immigrants in various parts of the country are so different. For example, Connecticut has a strong Italian tradition, but they've never heard of a Chicago "Italian beef" here, and I'm sure many of them aren't familiar with New Jersey's "Italian hot dog" either (which apparently includes potatoes).
