I live near Springfield and we la claim to some really unhealthy, but good foods. The first in the Corn Dog or Cozy Dog as we call it. Invented here. As well as the Horse Shoe sandwich. It is two pieces of Texas toast add meat of your choice. Top it off with french fries and liquid cheese sauce. Oh and we have the 8th ranked Chili Parlor in the US here as well. They make Chili that will burn you all the way through, but still taste good!

Barbecue.

So much so that they have a festival each year.

Sonoran Hot Dog. Originated in Hermosillo, the capital of the Mexican state of Sonora, in the late 1980s.

It consists of a hot dog that is wrapped in bacon and grilled, served on a bolillo-style hot dog bun, and topped with pinto beans, onions, tomatoes, and a variety of additional condiments, often including mayonnaise, mustard, and jalapeño salsa.

The Sonoran hot dog is prepared and sold by vendors called "dogueros" at street carts. It was estimated in 2009 that over 200 places in Tucson purvey the Sonoran hot dog, and that Phoenix has even more.

When I lived in Alaska and Canada, every trip to Houston I insisted on getting BBQ (typically two meat plate with brisket and sausage) and cajun (typically grilled oysters and blackened redfish with a sauce). If I was there a 3rd night, I'd be heading to Lupe Tortilla for queso, a margarita, shrimp brochette (bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and cheese), and beef fajitas.

There are two reasons Houston routinely ranks the unhealthiest city in the country. Delicious food and God awful heat & humidity. We sit around in the AC like veal and fatten up on delicious food. A much wider genre of foods than the stereotypes about Texas.

For example, we have the best Chinatown/Asiatown in Texas. My buddy is a first generation American and came to Houston from Singapore. He usually invites a group out to eat and orders family style for the table (i.e. I have not idea what I'm eating but it's delicious) and we go to Malaysian, dim sum, Vietnamese, Thai, Korean BBQ, etc. The foodie website, eater, just had an article on the Essential 20 Asiatown Restaurants.Haven't tried it yet, but it looks like the latest craze is Korean Korndogs and there was a continual 50+ person line the last time I was in Chinatown.

For years, Houston was a BBQ wasteland full of the mediocre. In the last 10 or 12 years, that has changed and we have two BBQ joints in the last Texas Monthly Top Ten and five more 11 thru 50. The other BBQ change I've witnessed is that BBQ joints turning out quality pork ribs and pulled pork (don't worry, they're still churning out amazing brisket and sausage).

Lots of Louisiana influence (oil & gas people who worked in LA plus people from LA who moved here) here too so amazing cajun and creole foods. I'm partial to the grilled Oysters and they're different than Oysters Rockefeller.

We're on the Gulf coast so lots of seafood. My favorite Gulf Coast seafood is redfish.

It's Texas so lots of steak, chicken fried steak, Tex-Mex, breakfast tacos/burritos, pecan pie (we're one of the largest Pecan growing states), etc.

Some of the original Texas settlers were Czech and German so one of the delicious breakfast treats are Kolaches (I'm partial to the jalapeno sausage cheese Kolaches). Lots of brewpubs too.

Lots of southern and soul food as well.

Nothing here really that I can think of, other than maybe Rocky Mountain oysters, but I've lived in or been through places that have great local fare.

Poutine in Kingston, Ontario. Probably not where it originated but it was the first place I ever had it in a little diner on frigidly cold snowy winter night. Pure stick-to-your-ribs goodness.

And Binghamton (NY) spiedies deserve a mention as well. Grilled marinated chicken (lamb is better) on Italian bread. Very tasty.

Oh, yes. Smile

There was a fine establishment (the Number 5) that had vendors outside at closing time that grilled those, at least back in the mid-80s. Survived the weekends on those. Smile

Indianapolis has Bean Soup and the Big Fried Pork Tenderloin Sandwich. And I suppose the St. Elmo's Shrimp Cocktail.
