What are your favorite regional U.S. foods?

Jump to last reply

I'm working on a section about food for the next edition of the Fodor's USA guide, and I'd like to get some input from the forums. Specifically, what are your favorite regional foods?

This is what I mean by "regional foods": dishes or types of cuisine that are strongly associated with a place -- foods you'd make a point to seek out when you visit a particular city or a region. Examples that spring to mind are lobster rolls in Maine, cheesesteaks in Philadelphia, mufaletta in New Orleans. (I have sandwiches on the brain at the moment. Lunchtime is on the horizon....)

Alternatively, if there's a particular regional food that you think is overrated -- that you sought out but were disappointed by -- I'd be interested in hearing that too.

Thanks for your help!
