Fried pork tenderloins are as popular in Iowa and Illinois as in Indiana. But only the Hoosiers make a thing of fried brains sandwiches.

I reject the notion of any sandwich being iconic.

Looks like it's time to for a trip to Indiana by way of Oklahoma.
Iowa is closer and has excellent Tenderloin sandwiches, which I miss greatly. Ask for a breaded pork tenderloin fixed like a grilled tenderloin. You should get a choice of cheese type (I usually do provolone) and jalapeno peppers. That's it. The standard has the same as a hamburger and is not as good.

Iowa says loose meat. Maid Rite and Reed burgers were the best, but Reeds has disappeared. Too bad because they had some of the best ice cream to be found anywhere.

I agree with loose meat, but the pork tenderloin sandwich runs a close second.

Mustard only on a loose meat. Anything more is overkill.

There was a place in Des Moines that served a variation as more of a "steak" than a burger.

Man that was good!

Yeah, I know, and I reject that meaning as well. If I hear one more trivial thing described as iconic I think I’ll get as sick as I would from eating a Hoosier brains sandwich.

You didn't "hear." You "read." There's a cure for that, you know, ya party pooper.

"Arizona: Sonoran Hot Dog
Okay, so this isn't exactly a sandwich, but in this southwestern state it's one of the best things you get on a roll. A hot dog gets wrapped in bacon, then topped with pinto beans, grilled onion, fresh onion, tomatoes, jalapeŮo sauce, mayo and mustard."

Actually, I do see a hot dog as a form of sandwich. Because I don't look at the stats on the 10 most popular/iconic AZ sandwiches in AZ, I don't know whether the listing for AZ is accurate in not.

Now I have a craving for approximately 32 different sandwiches. Having spent a lot of time in New England, I'm gravitating most towards a lobster roll and a fried clam sandwich. Sigh...

You got me. And as the hungry, footsore and disgusted Confederate told the Illinoisan who grabbed him by the scruff of the neck after Missionary Ridge, itís one Hell of a git you got. ;-)
