Western NY- Beef on Weck. Like the Weck, beef isn't bad either.

Tarpon Springs, FL- Greek salads contain a little bit of potato salad mixed in. Also known for other Greek specialties.
Makes sense for TS to have Greek specialties. Large Greek population in Florida.
What's beef on weck?
I know what you mean about scrapple. It's made from the parts of the pig that aren't good enough for the hot dog.

Kansas - chicken-fried steak.

Cincinnati - famous chili served with spaghetti.

Lincoln, Nebraska - Runza.

Most of the foods that Chicago is known for are foreign. Hotdogs are the exception, but they were first developed by a German immigrant. Chicago is a sausage town with Italian and Polish sausages the most popular. Then there's pizza. Italian beef sandwiches are a unique Chicago food. Polish food, Thai, Chinese, Italian and sushi are all very popular here. But when people from other parts of the country think of Chicago, they identify Chicago with the hotdog and deep dish pizza.

Sorry, I LOVE Scrapple. Always try to have it when I head to Philly!

Baltimore, MD - crabs, especially soft shell crabs. Also, having sauerkraut with Turkey (no Thanksgiving meal is complete without it!)

New York - yes, Italian, but also Chinese (every type!)

Newark, NJ - Portugese - some great Paella.
