I completely understand the Juicy Lucy for Minnesota but it's more common here to find a Walleye Sandwich/Burger or a Wild Rice Burger on a menu than a Juicy Lucy.

Lake trout is just a Baltimore thing. I'm not from Maryland and even I've heard of that. And it's not actually trout, it's a whiting fish.

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.
When ever someone does one of these foods for all 50 states lists I think some states get sort of strange choices, because the most obvious choices go to another state and they don't want to repeat themselves. Since a lot of the other states had BBQ meat sandwiches, they found some weird singular sandwich only available in one location for other states.

For example Washington gets a grilled salmon sandwich, which leaves Oregon(where it's also probably the most common sort of regionally unique sandwich) with some marionberry and hazelnut and blue cheese pbj sandwich that I never heard of. But that's the way it always is on these food by state lists or books--always Washington gets the salmon dish, we get something with hazelnuts(our state nut).

All the same, I still think it's a pretty cool list, they're not claiming that each sandwich is the state sandwich or sole representative of the state, it's just a different one found in each state whether classic or unique. And it's getting people to debate about sandwiches...

I'ved lived in 13 states, and never heard of any of those sandwiches except Wisconsin and Louisiana and the Michigan one whichis restricted to the UP. Most of them are just affectatious specials at some currently fashionable local sandwich shop at probably some outrageous price, commensurate with the fact that a mocked up ad-agency photo of their sandwich even exists. The photos about as real-life as that picture of the Whopper up on the signboard behind the cashier at BK, or the specimens you see on TV ads dripping in slow motion.

The Texas one should just be the What-a-Burger. Nobody goes through Texas without getting a What-a-Burger. Your cross the state line and stop at the first one you see.

Well, the blip did say that the lake trout actually contains no lake trout

Someone already did the 50 states, 50 burgers discussion as well--and you can start complaining about that one too since they didn't pick What-a-overrated-Burger.

Marylander's try to stay out of Baltimore as much as possible, probably why I've never heard of it.
