The chicken fry isn't really a sandwich. Too bad they didn't find the Badwich at Elmer's BBQ in Tulsa. Smoked hit links or sausage, smoked bologna, chopped beef and a rib served on Texas Toast and two sides. It be bad!

That's a true Oklahoma sandwich.

At Stagering Ox, I like the S.O.B. but the Nuke is good too.

I'm very pleased with the New Jersey selection. Very accurate, it is my go-to sandwich.

I've lived in multiple parts of TN, and never heard of whatever that crazy thing they picked for us was. TN is BBQ. Pulled pork sandwich with slaw. If they wanted to get creative, they could have done the BBQ taco from Martin's in Nolensville. It's gotten some national attention and still has the pulled pork/slaw elements.
I live less than 30 miles from the restaurant in the article, it's in a teeny, tiny town. Never heard of the restaurant or the crazy pastry thing before tonight.

I was surprised and thought it played into the stupid "NJ is all about Italians" stereotype.

More than a sub, Jersey's known for Taylor ham and cheese on a roll.

But, White House IS supposed to be a good place for subs.

Is Pork Roll specific to NJ or the general region - always thought of that as a Philly thing but maybe Jersey too, is that more a S/Central Jersey thing or does that play as much in N Jersey too. I call them fat boys as too many will make it live up to its name

Anyway for NJ I alway think back to my childhood and this little deli in Wildwood Creast called Ritas - Rita made a mean Pizza Steak - the best part was this was a little store front with a door connecting to her house (kitchen) behind the counter. When a customer would come in she (think Rita herself) would come down (stop doing dishes in her kitchen which you could see through the door) and make my favorite childhood Pizza Steak - the grease would run down your hands out of the foil good

Lately, most Pasty places in the UP are leaving out the rutabaga, because they say the customers don't like rutabaga in them. It's hard to get one ready-made anymore that has rutabaga in it.

Furthermore, the pasty is not a Michigan food, it is a UP food. Not the same thing. A pasty is hard to find in the lower peninsula. I lived in northern Lower for ten years, and I don't think I ever saw a place that served pasties.

Best sandwich in NJ is a roast beef with fresh mozzarella at Fiore's in Hoboken.

While the White House makes a good sub, it isn't unique to NJ.

As a native Marylander, I thought the same thing. A lake trout sandwich for a state that has no natural lakes? That's as bad as the halibut sandwich for land locked Utah.
