50 States, 50 Sandwiches

Linked article describes signature sandwiches from different states. Mass was the "fluffenutter", which is "wicked awesome" and invented here.

Were they spot on in your state?

Outside of US:  What is the signature sandwich of your area?

MN here - I would agree that they are spot on with the Juicy Lucy. This burger was invented at Matt's Bar in South Minneapolis, to which I have visited many times. It is SO GOOD!

I was surprised they didn't go with the po'boy.

My biggest fear was that I lived in California my whole life without eating the signature sandwich.  But to my relief, I've had a french dip plenty of times.  I'm not even big on red meat, and I love the french dip.

I find it amazing that I've never even heard of a fluffenutter, until reading your post today. Fast forward 2 hours (til now)... I'm sitting here watching the Sopranos and at the end of the episode I just watched, Chris stops by his mother's house and asks her to make him a fluffenutter... Too weird.

Marshmallow fluff is a New England thing.  Put it in hot chocolate and it is over the top good!  Melt it on fudge sundaes, mmm.

in Michigan I'm not sure that a pasty qualifies as a sandwich but if you are ever in northern Michigan, run ...don't walk to get  one anywhere around Mackinaw Island.

I would have actually thought for Michigan it would have been the coney dog.   World famous in Detroit and Flint.

Pennsylvania has two sandwiches that deserve mentioning. From the eastern part of the state is the famous Philly Cheesesteak. From the west is the Primanti Brother's sandwich...

They actually call the style of sandwich they have pictured for Montana a clubfoot. Ironically, The Nuke is one of the sandwiches Staggering Ox makes that isn't a clubfoot...

I'm sure there are some people in Butte pissed off that ours isn't a Pork Chop Johns.

I just realized that the Delaware place has a location adjacent to my backyard. Their sandwich is "the bobbie," Thanksgiving dinner on a roll. I've had that type of sandwich before, but this one uses real in-house roasted turkey rather than deli slices, so I'll have to check it out.

What about the middle of the state?

I'm surprised a bit that the Italian Sub is the sandwich of New Jersey. Don't get me wrong, I love me an Italian, and I probably eat 2-3 or those a month, minimum, but for me, the NJ sandwich of choice is always going to be something involving pork roll. So evil. So Jersey.

Zagats missed on this one, I think.

Just went to it. It's awesome. Got half a bobbie and half an italian. Maybe the best italian sub I've ever had.

I rarely have a roast beef sandwich in New York, but I love falafel, banh mi, pulled pork and lobster roll sandwiches. I probably eat more falafel/hummus than hamburgers.

Hershey is in the middle of Pennsylvania, so I guess it would be chocolate covered cookie sandwich....

There is no question that the sandwich of Maine is the lobster roll. My wife and I went to Bar Harbor for a few days this summer and had some of the most D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S  lobster on the planet.
