In Charlotte NC I'm not so sure. Vinegar based BBQ is popular here but was not invented here. There NC burgers which have chilli on them. The restaurant bojangles is from here, as is the grocery store Harris teeter and they have the biggest best subs I've ever had at a chain grocery store, except for there philly, it sucks

My city doesn't have a signature dish since it excels at all dishes. So I'll bring my specialty... hot dog & fish bleu cheese soup and a side of microwaved lean hotpockets.
