    So last year I drove Across the country for vacation but in each place we stopped we tried to eat either the famous local food or from a famous local place. Being from Jersey we knew there were things we could only get here but here are the foods from Jersey as well as some of the ones we hit along the way. What are some foods from Jersey I don't know about or ones from where you are from?

    Jersey:
    "Grease truck sandwiches" - Rutgers based trucks that make sandwiches that have chicken fingers, fries, cheese steaks, mozzarella sticks and red sauce on them. You can basically get whatever you want on them all mixed together.

    White castle: Know they are in like ten states but people not from Jersey don't tend to know them

    Jersey dogs: Fries and a cut up hot dog inside a hollowed roll

    Philadelphia:
    "Pat's King of Steaks" Obviously just the best cheese steak anywhere.

    Philly pretzels

    Maryland:
    soft crab cake sandwich

    Memphis: Rendezvous Ribs. Best dry rub ribs ever

    Florida: Aripas corn cakes with Mexican white cheese inside

    Cuban sandwich

    New Orleans: Alligator Po boy's

    California:
    Pyzanos pizza - insanely weird pizzas

    In and out burger

    Oregon:
    voodoo donuts - all kinds of donuts include jay Mohr nyquill donut

    Wisconsin: Fried cheese curds

    Omaha: Steaks

    Kansas City: BBQ

    Chicago:
    Giordanos stuffed deep dish pizza

    chicago hot dog

    Cleveland:That pasta chili and cheese dish

    Pittsburgh: Primanti brothers and The O
    Primanti is sandwiches with fries Cole slaw and thick bread

    The O is just massive hot dogs

    Also just outside of Pittsburgh is the beer barrel pub which makes worlds largest burger

    Massachusetts: Clam Chowder

    New York:
    totonnos pizza

    dirty water dog

    Egg cream

    katz deli

    Hog Maw, basically the German version of Haggis. Meat, potatoes, spices, in a pig gut and baked.
    Slippery Pot Pie.
    Apple Dumplings
    Chicken Corn Soup

    Tastykakes. Junk food, local in Pa and NY I think.

    Pork Chop Sandwich or WOP CHOP I don't know what hellspawn created these damn things...They are hugely popular out here dunno why...a breaded and deep fried porkchop, pickles, onions, cheese, and yellow mustard on a bun. I found it puke inducing

    North Carolina = barbecue (NO dipshit, not what you think cooking on a grill is)

    Eastern NC style...chopped shoulder or Boston butt with a vinegar and red pepper sauce

    Western NC style...chopped with a more tomato based vinegar sauce

    that mountain, South Carolina shit with a yellow mustard sauce is just retarded

    Ohio = a tenderloin...it's a deep fried, chopped beef, pounded flat, about the size of a Little League catchers mitt on a bun

    Florida Keys = conch fritters, at least they were more localized to just there when I was there in the 80s

    Not by a long shot. That, along with Geno's is a tourist spot. Between the two, go for Geno's.

    Try Tony Luke's, Jim's, or Steve's Prince of Steaks. All three of them are far better than the South Philly tourist joints.

    Jim's is the best to me, and the people working there are always fun.

    Also, with jersey. Although it's in other states, pork roll. And the "jersey burger" burger with pork roll egg and cheese on top.

    To add to NY - Grey's Papaya

    Wow, I cant believe I forgot pork roll. Greatest food ever.

    I wasnt sure if I should go with grimaldi's or totonnos. one of the old charcoal places.
    also in the city the doughnut factory and formerly piesanos

    I didnt like Tony luke's, big pat's fan.

    I loved giordanos stuffed sausage and spinach. great stuff. I've actually ordered it throught the mail since then.

    Also on a roadtrip, not necessarily a regional thing, but you gotta eat at a cracker barrel and a waffle house at some point in life.

    Rutt's Hutt in Clifton, NJ has the best hot dogs I've ever had in my life. I always grab about 15 dogs before every Giants game and head on over to the tailgate and they're gone in 10 minutes.

    Nelly's in West Long Branch got me thorugh many a-night at college. It's a knock off of the Greasetrucks but it's an outstanding knock off. Fat Willie or Fat Nights for me. There was always an unwritten rule that you had to order Nelly's past midnight. It's just that kind of food. The Windmill (hot dogs) was another staple in college but I never thought it was that great.

    Drake's cakes rule here in the Northeast. Yankee Doodles and Coffee Cakes rock the fat ass.

    Also Boylan's. They have some bitchin' Black Cherry, Birch Beer, and Cream Soda. Not sure if it's just a tri-state area thing or if it's other places too.

    Been to Primante's in Pitt but wasn't a fan of the sandwich. Looked good though.

    I'm going to San Francisco in February. Any food joints/local dishes I should check out? Please hold the gay jokes.

    Also going to Montreal in March. Any help there would be cool.

    You guys should check out this show on the Food Network. It's called "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives." This guy goes all through the country checking out the local fare. Great show and it makes me want to go around the country checking these places out all the time.
