From The Daily Mail:
What's for lunch? Depends which state you're in! Artist creates 50 sandwiches representing every region of the U.S.
[[[<font]A dietary staple to most Americans, bringing convenient and portable meals with the helped early 1900s ability of pre-sliced bread, the sandwiches reflect each state's culture, history and especially their flavour.  ....

Without even looking -  Texas:  BBQ brisket w/ pickle & onion.
 
After looking; I was right about Texas, but they have the wrong kind of ham for the Virginia Ham Biscuit.  Properly, it should be salt-cured "country ham", not the "Virginia Baked Ham" illustrated. 
 
And the Carolina sandwich is also wrong; it isn't made from pulled pork shoulder; properly, it should be minced whole hog 'cue.  At least they got the sauce right.

I figured PA would be the Philly cheesesteak but I would prefer any sandwich from Primanti's.

Texas: Chopped (BBQ) beef sandwich. Add-ons (sauce, onion, relish, pickle hot sauce, etc, etc, etc.) are up to the eater and what's available where your eating it.

I have my doubts about the Italian Beef for Illinois. It's more of a Chicago area thing and I don't think you see it much when you get 100 miles away. Also in the area I live in the add on are gardinera or sport peppers, not green pepper.

+1, though pit beef may be a bit more centralized to the greater Baltimore area.  I'm going to guess the crab cake will be the state sandwich of Maryland.

Where did they find that roll on CT photo?   Without a doubt, CT has the best hot-oven grinders anywhere - primarily due to their grinder rolls.  That pictured roll looks like something from subway.
 
 
That ham on the VA photo also seems way out of line.   It needs to be country ham, as someone else has mentioned.

Fully agree - steak sandwich on a hard roll, hot (or cold) lobster roll or a hot dog from numerous roadside stands is much more a draw for me than a chicken parm.

My vote for AZ is the Sonoran Dog. While the folklore of Sonoran Dogs remains fuzzy, this much is known. American Hot Dogs migrated to Mexico in the 1940's. At some point, either in Mexico City or Hermosillo, Sonora, someone wrapped it in Bacon, grilled it, put it in a Bolillo Roll and dressed it with tomatoes, pico or salsa, beans, onions, guacamole, mayo or creama. 
In Tucson alone, more than a 100 vendors known as hotdogueros peddle Sonoran-style hot dogs. While unique to AZ, Sonoran Dogs are starting to migrate to other areas after visitors, (Like Buffetbuster & Wandering Jew) discover them.

It's over 840 miles by road from Key West to Pensacola, so I don't think there is any one sandwich that represents that whole route, but I'd vote for the Cuban (mixto) sandwich down here in SoFla.

A rye bun?  As good as that sounds I think a Sheboygan hard roll would probably be the more likely choice.

I think it would be difficult if not impossible to find ONE sandwich that could represent an entire state.  This strikes me more as the artist's vision of what a "state's sandwich" would be based on what is most well known/what comes to mind first when someone from outside of that state is asked to name a sandwich from that state.  Interesting displays on the cutting boards though I am more a fan of "food porn" shots showing a sandwiches in their fully-constructed, natural state.

If I had to pick between Iowa and Indiana for the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich, despite the pride of both states, I would have to pick Indiana if only one gets to claim the sandwich. Despite what Iowans think, they are more pervasive in Indiana and extend into more restaurants of all strata. Does Indiana have an alternative? A fried catfish sandwich was suggested by another site reviewing state sandwiches but I had always known catfish as a plate dinner and not a sandwich in Indiana.
 
For many years the Maid-Rite loose meat sandwich was Iowa first and foremost when it came to mention. I think the Iowa Pork Producers Association elevated the BPT over the Maid-Rite in just the past decade with its best pork tenderloin sandwich contest - a stroke of marketing genius.

The thing is, Hon, you've gotta know that the crab cake shouldn't be served on bread, it's served on saltines. Nuf said!!

I associate Maid Rite's with Iowa not the BPT. So on that, Iowa should be a MR.
 
BPT for Indiana.
 
I was also thinking, for Kentucky, the Hot Brown of course. Although in the eastern half the Chili Bun would be the choice.
New York almost has to be cut in two. Pastrami on Rye in NYC area and Beef on Weck in WNY.
West Virginia and Virginia could both use the Hot Dog "All the way"
The Coney Dog for Michigan although the Pasty may qualify.
Ohio could also use the Coney Dog however it would have to be with Cinci Chili as well they could use the Double Decker.

While it's a great sandwich, it's so regionally oriented to SW Pennsylvania and not well known by non-yenzers, I'm inclined to give the honor to the Cheesesteak. Even Buffetbuster agrees in the above post.

I have my doubts about the Italian Beef for Illinois. It's more of a Chicago area thing and I don't think you see it much when you get 100 miles away. Also in the area I live in the add on are gardinera or sport peppers, not green pepper.


I think she has it covered -- giardiniera for the hots, roasted green bell for the sweets (don't usually see sports on a beef, only dogs). But I think you have a point about it representing the whole state. Maybe a better candidate would be the horseshoe, which was invented in Springfield, the state capital.

No surprise that N Carolina gets represented by a bbq pork. Lots of variety goes with the cut of pork, type of sauce base and slaw. I'm wary of the type of slaw pictured. Looks like simple green cabbage with a vinegar tang but most will offer slaw with a tomato/vinegar base or opposite direction with mayo. Sad to say most Carolina restaurants feature bbq in some fashion and fail in one or all the aspects of the sandwich. The best are usually not from retail but church or community bbqs. Just be looking for a cooker or smoke stack with piles of hickory feeding a fire barrel.

I just found out we, here in Wisconsin, near Brookfield-are getting a Maid-Rite! Curious to try one. Back to our state sandwich- I agree with others it would be a brat. Screaming Chicken suggests it would be served on a hard roll-which is fantastic. But having lived in Sheboygan for 5 years, thats an area thing. Everywhere else I have been, a brat is served on a good old brat bun( very different from a hot dog bun)
