*nodding in appreciation of the point* Yeah, I was thinking of Texas overall. And you are right that CFS would fall under the general class of Southern/soul food. Then again, in a way, so would BBQ. However, I think both (BBQ and CFS) as usually served in the state are sorta indicitive of "Texican" uniqueness. That is to say, BBQ here tends to be beef whereas our southeastern kinfolk usually prepare pork. And while CFS is a first cousin to Deep South "country fried steak", there are a few differences.

Apparently no one from the Cincinnati area has chimed in with their regional favorite, Cincinnati Chili. Five way please!

City chicken isn't chicken. It's cubes of pork or beef that can be made and put on a skewer so you can eat it off a stick.

From Wikipedia: The dish (and hence the term) seem to be regionalized to the areas surrounding Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh-area preparations are almost always breaded and usually baked, whereas the Cleveland version is generally baked without breading and served with gravy. Grocery stores in both areas sell wooden skewers of pork cubes pre-prepared as city chicken.
