I had their chicken salad sandwich once, in a mall near my house when they have a Chick-Fil-A in the food court. It was pretty good. I also tried their soft serve ice cream once, from the same place, and it was really good.

How is this hypocritical - there's West Carolina barbecue, East Carolina barbecue, Memphis barbecue, Kansas City barbecue, Virginia barbecue, etc. etc. Each region does it a little differently. One is not better than the other (although I do prefer East Carolina barbecue); they are simply different.

Not sure why some are having a hard time admitting that the NE does Italian better as a whole, because we have the most Italians and it is literally part of our culture and has been since the 1880s when these people started coming in large numbers to this area and changed the NE for at least the next century and a half.
Everywhere there are Italian Americans "it" has been a part of the culture as well. The Northeast does not have a corner on Italian Americans, or their culture. Get over it.

Maybe you need to educate yourself. That is a blatant lie.

And "get over it"? Are you getting mad? No need.

Why should I have any need to "get over it" when I think that's incorrect? There's a vast difference between a place where Italian-Americans are a near-majority and a large part of the culture and one with where they are a couple %. With a few exceptions, the places in the US where Italians are a common ethnic group (say above 10-15%) is still the Northeast.

How are you familiar with different barbecue types without living in those regions?

I am of Italian heritage with family all over the country, yes, even in New York City metro and New Jersey. That's my education.

Selling "New York style pizza" in Florida or Texas or California or Canada or *gasp* Ohio.
And many times (not always) the "New York style" pizza outside of New York is done badly. I once wanted to inform a place their "New York pizza" wasn't like "New York pizza" but I refrained.

Again, I don't think people outside the NE understand the scale of Italian culture/influence in the NE. How else could you explain people claiming that all Italian food is the same everywhere in the US and that Italian culture is the same anywhere there are either 20,000 or 2 Italians?

And just because Italian's have opened decent authentic places in other parts of the country, doesn't mean that there aren't lots of inauthentic ones opened by non-Italians elsewhere.
