South Dakota: Some pheasant would be good. As long as all of the BBs got removed. That's always the worst

I was going to suggest lefse! For Nebraska, either steak or a runza.

TN: Country ham with red-eye gravy, Jack Daniels on the side.

CA - a huge salad with avocados, strawberries, greens, pistachios, cheese and crab. Various wines on the side.

Hoagie, for sure!! But not from Wawa. There are so many better places to get a hoagie.

Maybe I'm speaking out of total culinary ignorance about the region, but I'll take a swing.

Wisconsin: maybe corn on the cob and Amerindian fry bread with honey.

Milwaukee-Racine area: (as a more distinct region): a traditional Friday fish fry and a bottle of beer.

West Virginia- Beans and cornbread

Beans and Cornbread: Feeding Souls a Mile Deep : NPR

Though some believe it should be the pepperoni roll

Pepperoni roll - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I personally favor beans and cornbread, which was a staple food in our house, the pepperoni roll was unknown and totally foreign.

Someone already said walleye for MN, and it's so true! Walleye, walleye, walleye. And wild rice. Although fresh caught sunnies fried over the campfire are a staple.

And yeah, beer and brats in Wisconsin.

Harking back to summers with my poor south Louisiana relatives: crawfish gumbo with the crawfish caught in the canefield irrigation ditches and probably incredibly carcinogenic and the legs pulled off over newspapers. Dirty rice, and it doesn't count if it doesn't have okra in it.

In Okalahoma, all the good powwows have old ladies who bring and sell their own special FRYBREAD. Some kind of ground beef mixture, sometimes a chili, is usually served with it.

In IA and other midwestern states corn-on-the-cob in the summertime. It's no good unless it was picked less than 2 hours ago. Forget what you find in the grocery stores, that doesn't count. And how about the midwestern summer garden supper? Tomatoes and snap beans (cooked with bacon fat) and corn on the cob with some sort of dead pig accompaniment.

From my childhood in IN I'm remembering apple butter served on fried biscuits. Oh, gotta go back to the Nashville House!

Bison burgers are becomming pretty common on menus in ND.

In sw TX I first encountered Tex-Mex. Whatever it was was always served with squishy white wonder bread and large slices of nasty margerine - guess that's the Tex part. The Mex part was usually good.

When I visit my relatives in western WA it's always salmon - baked or broiled. They always send me smoked salmon for Christmas.

Whew, that's enough of that!

Years ago I had walleye at a Minnesota-themed restaurant at the friggin' Mall of America and it was absolutely terrific.

sounds good, I'd also add green chile enchiladas, and don't forget the honey with the sopapillas.
