No, Sloppy Joes are not grilled, and they don't have sauerkraut in them. Not the same as a Reuben at all.
Ohhh...I don't like Ruebens anyway so I guess I was confusing the saurkraut with the cole slaw. Still sounds like a familiar sammich though.
I am Midwestern, Wisconsin to be precise. Deep fried cheesecurds! I will admit that I have only lived in Wisconsin so maybe they have these elsewhere, but these are a staple of county fairs!

And I know someone said they love Imo's pizza. OH MY GOD! That was the biggest culture shock moving from WI to the St. Louis area. I can't believe people in St. Louis call that pizza.
fried clams with bellies
grilled or fried calamari
crab and butternut squash chowder
fish chowder
Any sort of grilled fish

But I hate lobster in all its forms, except lobster bisque and maybe lazy lobster over pasta.

There's really good Brazilian food up here. Also Cuban.

Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
From NJ:

Pizza made by a guy named Tony or Nunzio, not from Pizza Hut.

In North Jersey, a "Sloppy Joe" is not ground beef in BBQ sauce on a bun. It's a deli sandwich with meat, cheese, cole slaw and Russian dressing on 3 thin slices of rye bread. I can only eat a half.

I don't care for it, but a classic NJ breakfast from a deli or coffee shop would be Taylor ham (pork roll), egg and cheese on a roll. Guaranteed artery-clogger. Taylor ham is only found in NJ to my knowledge.

And it's funny, recently, on another messageboard I frequent, some people were alking about that breakfast w/Taylor ham. No one outside of Jersey had a clue what they were talking about. (I still don't really know what it is, lol.)

Philadelphia hoagies and mexican food and horchata from the taquerias in Tucson.

On a side note, I'm really not enjoying the hawaiian favorites. Poi? gag. Poke? yuk, I always expect it to tastes like ceviche and it so. does. not. I can stomach spam musubi if I'm having a stomach crisis. They're surprisingly effective for hangovers too. But palatable? Not so much.

fried pickles.

I could have skipped all the other stuff and just eaten those. SO good.
New England -

Fried whole belly clams. They have them elsewhere but our cold water makes them taste sooo much better.

Poutine - actually a canadian dish but so many people in this area have parents and grandparents from Canada you actually see it around here. And Pork Pies...I think are also a Canadian thing but you see it a lot here too.

Fluff!! New England Clam Chowder. Vermont Cheddar cheese. Lobster rolls. American Chop Suey.
Central Massachusetts

BrewCrewGirl, you beat me to it! I had deep fried cheese curds and local beer last night. Mmmmm!

Also, un-fried, fresh cheese curds are a Wisconsin thing, I think. When they're really fresh, they squeak when you bite into them. They're heavenly!

Squeaky cheesecurds are the best! I remember a class field trip was to the local cheese factory!

Beer, cheese and can't forget about Brats boiled in Beer!

Fried tomatoes and tomato gravy are yummy too! I've got to stop reading this thread. I'm going to go off and start eating fried food again and gaining 20 pounds!
I could easily eat an entire jar of Fluff. Yum.

Is just that brand that's regional or do certain regions eat it plain? The only reason we buy marshmellow cream is to make fudge.

Honestly, not something I eat. But very Jersey.
I'm from NJ (NY originally.)

in no particular order:
pizza
bagels
Chinese food

Yes you can get them anywhere, but they'r just NOT the same! (is it the water?)


Also, from the Philly/So. Jersey area,
Goldenberg's Peanut Chews

When I was living in Ohio, and pregnant with #2, my MIL actually mailed a case to me
