    The best local delicacies I have experienced in Florida are generally just the fact that you can go pull something extremely tasty right out of the water! Grouper, snapper, drum, mullet, catfish, sea bass...

    I'm sure there are more specific local Florida dishes too, but I am more familiar with the ones that come right out of the ocean.

    A natural casing hotdog on a bun with beanless chili, onion, mustard .

    Crazy though you only have to go an hour south to Toledo before it’s completely messed up.

    Tony Packo’s ? Beautiful crunchy dog, nice soft bun - and beans in the unspicy chili ?

    Lord...:rolleyes:

    That said , I’m glad we have Hippo’s here where you can get as a good a Chicago dog as you can can anywhere in Chicago.

    We have the Texas wiener here in PA. Don't know what that's about but they are good!

    Nothing super unique to ATL area other than lots of good Southern food and BBQ. When I moved here 25 years ago there were lots of Southern staples that were new to me -- shrimp & grits, oxtails, neck bones, fried green tomatoes, pickled okra and shrimp, crackling cornbread, Brunswick stew, low country boil, etc. . ., but again nothing particularly unique to Ga amongst other southeastern states.

    SCRAPPLE ALERT -- I grew up in Midwest and Ohio and yes scrapple was a big part of my breakfast life! I still love it and every so often will get an order shipped down here, but my wife and kid think its the grossest stuff ever!

    Buffalo Wings and Beef on Weck. There are also tons of great places to eat in both Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Speaking of the Steak Sub thread, my go-to is a Stinger which is the steak and cheese with chicken fingers on it as well.

    In Outer Redneckia (Atlanta metro exurbs) the primary local restaurant food is "meat plus three". This typically means your choice of whatever frozen entrees and vegetables that Sysco or Sam's had on sale this week.

    Bad BBQ is also common. GA doesn't have a distinct sauce type so you tend to get what influenced the owner or chef. Sadly, this is usually an overly sweet sauce that tastes like Hunts BBQ blended with a bit of cayenne and Worcestershire sauce.

    Food choices tend to get better if you get away from the Atlanta area heading southward. BBQ is much better in Southwest GA. On the coast, shrimp is great.

    I've lived in Maryland for about 15 years and I've grown to love all the stuff the OP talks about. Just the smell of a distant crab shack makes me happy. My wife taught me to pick crabs, actually; it was very romantic.

    Melton Mowbray pork pie. Served with English mustard. Delicious. 2207973_B.jpg

    Although I'm sure a Yorkshireman will be along in a minute telling me that the ones from the butchers in Pately Bridge are better.

    In the freezer section here you can get "New York Brand Texas Toast".

    I don't think there's any indigenous food here, it's all imported from our neighbors. BBQ from Texas or Tennessee, Delta Tamales from Mississippi, seafood from Louisiana. I don't think we've borrowed anything from Oklahoma or Missouri, thank God for small favors.

    Oh there is one thing - apparently Cheese Dip was invented here.

    I'm jealous of the yellowtail snapper and grouper. I can't get snapper and grouper is $26/lb in NY.
