In Philly we are known for our "Philly Soft Pretzels" and our "Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches". We also have this local bakery that produces "Tastykakes" which completely smokes the more nationally known "Hostess" lineup.

I'm going to Chicago this week and will be sure to try some "Chicago Deep Dish Pizza".

What do you have 'round your way that is "locally famous" that visitors should be sure to try out?

I believe in Texas, BBQ is king.

I was on a business trip in California and we went to a restaraunt called "The Texas Grill". The place was plastered with signage claiming they served "Authentic Texas and TexMex meals". I ordered the "BBQ" plate. In Texas, when you order a BBQ plate you get brisket, sausage, beans, potato (tater) salad and a couple of slices of bread. Sometimes you get rice instead of the potato salad or the meat may be different (ribs, chicken), but for the most part, that is what you get.

The waiter brought over my "BBQ" plate which consisted of brisket, mashed potatoes, and a mixture of aspargus and some kind of sprouts. The brisket was fine and I can live with mashed potatoes, but fucking asparagus? What the fuck? I called the waiter over and politley told him he would be shot on sight for serving asparagus to a patron in Texas. The funniest part of the story is that he (and the rest of the party) seemed to believe me.

On the same trip, someone asked me if all of our roads were paved and asked if everyone carried a gun.

Atlanta and the south are known for BBQ, which, like Brodie says, is taken very seriously.

Peanuts and peaches galore in GA.

NJ has the best pizza in the entire world, IMO.  Whether it's Italian Village in Madison or Oakland Pizza, you can't go wrong.

Taylor Ham is a NJ staple and the cause of many heart attacks.

Since you're going to Chicago, you gotta try this place, "The Weiner Circle"

The Chicago deep dish isn't all it's cracked up to be, IMO. It's OK at best. Just don't go to UNO's. I live in 30 min west of Milwaukee and guess our specialty is beer, brats, and cheese. If you ever come here, try the deep fried cheese curds. I usually dip 'em in marinara or ranch....yummmm.

For those who like BBQ, Corky's in Germantown(suburb of Mempho), has some unbelievable ribs. Dry rub is some heavy duty shit.

I have never seen them outside of the midwest, but a fried pork tenderloin sandwich more addictive then heroin and might kill you faster.

BBQ Tri-Tip is king in Central CA.  Can't recommend ya a restaurant in particular.  What you need to do is drive around on a weekend until you see someone selling BBQ Tri tip or BBQ tri tip sandwiches for some church function or whatever.  There's always SOMEONE doing it.  Preferably in a  black neighborhood.  Those folks know how to BBQ.

It'll be the best $5 you ever spend.

Or you can stop at a butcher shop, drop $20, buy 2 tips and come by my place.  I'll smoke 'em and we'll watch AWA.

I would say in NY the best pizza and Italian restaurants in the country.  Possibly the best steakhouses too.  But that's just what I enjoy, if you like Chinese food or Indian food or whatever, I would bet you can get better versions of it in NY than just about anywhere else too.  Whatever floats your boat, it's a 20-minute train ride away.

KC it's steak first. KC strip is the main one, and if in town you hit Plaza III for the best steak in town

I'm not big into BBQ but supposedly it's pretty decent here. Arthur Bryants and Gates are two of the more popular ones

Son, the best steakhouses are in the south and midwest.  Deep south or say Texas/Oklahoma thereabouts.

Me or you claiming we have the best steakhouses will only get us lynched.  And I have a legit claim just noone knows it because of stereotype.

Well I'll put Peter Lugar's Steakhouse up against anyone.  It ain't Sizzler or Outback Steakhouse, that's for sure.

Yeah that place has been around forever, ya may have a point.

But on the whole, steak is not to be served with a Bronx/Brooklyn accent.  There's a rule.

"Daa here's ya fookin' steaks there, champ..."
