I couldn't get the original link to work right, here's a version all on one page.

https://www.delish.com/food/g1208/be...wich-shops-us/

I like to try local foods when I travel, I'll have to bookmark the list.

My husband orders them all over. PNW and Minnesota this year.
But I hardly think it's representative of California.

I've noticed "California Sandwich" or salad or pizza on several menus in the Midwest. They're not the same from place to place, and sometimes I can't figure out why they would be called California anything. One California salad was iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, and peanuts. I could see almonds...

Cubanos are all over Jacksonville. The only sandwich on the list that's really bad is the "hot brown" from Kentucky. Awful!!

I don't think so...

Uh-uh. It's the Jucy Lucy, hands down.

The Best Juicy Lucy Burgers in the Twin Cities - Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

[I'm not saying they're the best, but they are iconic. Walleye sandwich? Not so much.]

PS - It's Jucy Lucy, not 'Juicy' Lucy!
Yep.

And a whole bunch of imitations at non-chain burger places all over the state as well.

NC sandwich likely pulled pork BBQ
Detroit, Chicago, and St. Louis all have local chains that serve a French dip sandwich.

I liked the hot brown the one time I tried it. Itís a heavy sandwich though, kind of the poutine of the sandwich world. As is, I might add, the horseshoe sandwich from Springfield, IL. Get ready for nap after either of these.

I was born and raised in California. For me, the California sandwich should be a BLAT (Bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato).

Yes, I think the original Jucy Lucy too. I do like a good walleye sandwich but you can't always be sure you're getting the real deal.

Thanks, Steiconi, for a more user-friendly version.

I am just glad the author described the French dip as "served au jus" and not served with au jus, or worse, with au jus sauce.

And nearly every diner and many restaurant sandwich menus I have seen from the Northeast to the Southwest since at least the late 80s. If this was invented in LA, then kudos. It is one of my favorite sandwiches.

Never seen a Polish Boy across most of the southern half of the state. Is it iconic? Maybe in Cleveland.

Agree. The Albuquerque Turkey is nearly as widespread as the GCCB. Maybe it is not as iconic, but its deserves some credit.
