Damn. That looks amazing! Is that mustard on the bottom there? That's the only thing I'd leave off, but it looks like it's got mayo so I'm in!

Haven't seen these mentioned yet, and while I'm not from either place I've spent way too many years there clogging my arteries at every opportunity.
Ontario/Quebec poutine and Binghamton (NY) spiedies.
I could live off of both of them.
Oh, and as good as that Triple Triple looks, let's not forget Tommy Burgers. They put In-N-Out to shame.

It is, and it's how I prefer mine (I like everything, and cheese), but most places let you pick your toppings. And yes, mayo is a popular choice !
Being from Louisiana I would have a long list. But right now I’m eating some Crawfish Boudin I got today. It’s good
And no, junior not being able to hold still for 5 seconds is not a disability.
There are all kinds of ritzy joints in NYC, but for everyday fare my favorites are:
Pastrami Sandwich from a good deli
Scallion Pancakes in China Town
and for dessert:
Cheesecake from a reputable pastry shop (Back in the day, Stadium Bakery, on 161st near the original Yankee Stadium was AMAZING!)
Coconut icee/gelatos from those little carts in the Bronx and upper Manhattan.
Now that I'm in Washington, can't really think of any local standout, it seems everything came from somewhere else. I suppose good local brewery craft beers, lots to choose from out here.
I’m not Czech, but boy, does that look good!

I've never been to U Fleku, but my favorite was at a little pub-style restaurant in Zbraslav (a suburb village south of Prague where I lived for a couple of years) called Skoda Lasky. They had a sweet style kraut that I've never had anywhere else, and it was fantastic. We used to get veprozeloknedlo every now and then for school lunch, too...us boys were always trying to talk the lunch ladies out of a few extra knedliky (dumplings).
Rode up tonight all you can eat catfish with two sides only $16. Hit them for three baskets. Good stuff
I’m originally from WV.
Utah.... hmmmm. Maybe funeral potatoes? Only one I’m sure of is the pastrami burger, and fry sauce.
Several BBQ joints have been trying to make blackberry BBQ sauce a Utah thing.
My hovercraft is full of eels.

Lived there (actually Endicott) when I was a little kid.
I was too young, so I don't really recall those specifically, but my parents still rave about how great spiedies were.

I can't believe no Rhode IslandAHs have chimed in. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Del's Lemonade! (only the original flavor though).
And who can resist the deliciousness of a Coffee Awful Awful!! (from Newport Creamery).
When I occasionally return to RI I make a point of ALWAYS hitting Del’s Lemonade in Wakefield, (actually EVERY Del's stand I see) and Champlin’s Seafood in Narragansett. Champlin’s has the BEST LobstAH Rolls!! In fact, Champlin’s ROCKS for all of your fresh, local seafood needs – especially if you have to wait for the Block Island ferry.
Lots of folks like Clam ChowdaH. Personally, I’m not a fan.
And since I usually try to avoid hi carb foods, Clam Cakes aren’t really on my list of acceptable foods, but one of these days I hope to get Rotndad up there so he can sample the merchandise. He’s a native Floridian who loves Hush Puppies, so I’m thinking he’ll LOVE Clam Cakes. Hope so!
A hearty Thank You to the OP for starting this yummy trek down MMMmmemory lane.
*** Oh and I forgot to mention that IIRC, you can actually get a Lobster Roll at the McDonalds in Wakefield. AND it's GOOD !
Not sure they still sell them there, but they did at one point.
I'm with Rotndad what's your excuse.

I grew up in NC and thought fried okra was a staple everywhere. Got to VA and found out 3/4 of the people I met either never had it or hated it. I grow my own and gorge on it at every opportunity. Even prep a few gallon freezer bags and save some to hold me over til I can plant again in the spring.
I am with you......I grew up eating fried okra. In fact, I just finished prepping my current crop okra seeds for next spring's planting. My good friends from NC get real friendly with me when the plants are really producing. I do a lot more on the grill these days, as I don't fry much of anything anymore.
|Muzzle flash |
My mom grew and prepared fried okra when I was a kid. I don't care for it, though. (I will accept some sliced okra in a soup--not boiled to slimy, though.)

I'm from St. Louis and always have a nostalgic place in my heart and stomach for St. Louis Pork Steaks. You get the fatiest and cheapest pork butt steaks, sear them on your grill and then continually baste them or cook them in a pan on your grill immersed in Maull's BBQ sauce and a can of your oldest beer in your fridge.
I've grown fond of Iowa Breaded Pork Tenderloin sandwiches.

OH yes!!! My new next door neighbor just moved here from St Louis. He made another trip there and back and had his home St Louis butcher cut him a dozen St Louis style pork steaks.
I had no idea, never heard of them before, but wow they were delicious.
He says he just can't get our local butchers to cut them right.

I'm from NYC. It's bagels, pizza, and Chinese for me.
