50 STATES, 50 SANDWICHES! Sat, 01/18/14 1:55 PM (permalink)
The folks at Zagat's have compiled a list of Sandwiches that represent the 50 United States of America.
The list looks pretty accurate to me.
Do you feel your state is properly represented????

    One of the better thought out lists than most...I do believe Maryland should have been  crabcake and or softshell crab, perhaps even pit beef.

      Never heard of a red brat. However, in Sheboygan, there is a split brat on a hard roll. Milwaukee has the best brats........

        Yeh, I questioned that one also and agree with you.

          Arizona could have just as easily been the Sonoran Dog.
          Which raises the question---Is an encased meat (Like a Hot Dog) in a bun considered a sandwich?

              Pretty much right on for the state sandwich of Texas. Although, I always thought THE Texas state sandwich consisted of nothing more than chopped brisket on a bun with sliced raw onion and a little sauce. Nothing more!

                I would of thought the state sandwich for New York would have been a hot dog or, pastrami on rye.
                Oh I'm sorry, I forgot. NYC isn't the only city in the state of New York.

                  Culturally speaking, Western NY and Eastern NY might as well be on 2 different Planets! 
                  Same with Southern FL and Northern/The Panhandle FL.

                    As someone who was born & spent most of my life in the NYC area & is now a resident of Central east coast FL, I couldn't agree more. I never had a Weck until I was almost 30.

                        Kansas should have been the slider - its where the damn thing was invented, for Pete's sake! So either Bobo's in Topeka, or more likely, Cozy Inn should have been featured!

                            Even with some questionable choices, still a great list of delicious-looking sandwiches!  Catfish Sloppy Joe!!!  Oh my!

                              I had some business up in Pittsfield Mass which caused me to fly into Buffalo NY and drive up. I tried the Beef on Weck and loved loved loved it. Had the Italian beef and brocolli rabb at Reading Station. Wish we could get a decent pastrami on rye down here. There was a decent Cajun place that had a good (not great) muffaletta but it fell victim to a turkey frying accident ...sigh.

                                Michigan should be either the Coney Island or a Perch, Walleye, or Whitefish sandwich. The Pasty although very Michigan usually only found on menus in the northern portions and the Upper Penninsula of the state. Most of them are sold to Fudgies in as they pass through while the Coney Islands and fresh caught fish sandwichs are every day fare.

                                  I'm from northern Wisconsin, and I've never heard of a red brat. I think the WI sandwich should be a beer-boiled brat. (But I think it's cheating a bit to call a brat a sandwich.) A walleye sandwich would be a better choice (with apologies to Dews who would claim it for Michigan).

                                        It's a pejorative for a tourist in Michigan. They seem always to have to buy some of that state's "famous" fudge.

                                             The nearest decent pastrami on rye to Austin would have to be Kenny & Ziggy's in Houston or, Deli-News in Dallas.
                                             The nearest (excellent) chopped or sliced BBQ brisket closest to Houston or Dallas would be in Austin.

                                                I think what they are are referring to with is a "red brat"  is to differentiate it from a German style "white brat". Years ago on the east coast (Maine/Northern Virginia) that is what was more common, if you bought bratwurst. The "red brat" is more like the color and texture of an Italian sausage. My first exposure to a Wisconsin style brat was when I first visited my in-laws in Des Moines in the late 80's. It was love at first bite. My humble opinion.

                                                  My turn. Shoobies?

                                                  In the early days of Ocean City, people would come down by train for a day at the beach.  They would carry a bathing suit and toiletries in a shoe box.  People started calling day-trippers shoeboxers or shoobies.  Or so the story goes.

                                                      I'm from northern Wisconsin, and I've never heard of a red brat. I think the WI sandwich should be a beer-boiled brat. (But I think it's cheating a bit to call a brat a sandwich.) A walleye sandwich would be a better choice (with apologies to Dews who would claim it for Michigan).

                                                      No offense to either Michigan or Wisconsin but you are more likely to get a walleye sandwich in Minnesota in many more restaurants. Wisconsin is more perch inland and all along the Great Lakes in Wisconsin and Michigan it is more white fish.
                                                       
                                                      Restaurant walleye is all Canadian anyway. There is only one commercial walleye shipper in the United States and that is from the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Minnesota.

                                                        In general,I think the list is pretty accurate. However, having lived all my life in Virginia, I was wondering why the best they could come up with is an "Alamo Cuban"?!!! That sandwich says nothing about Virginia (although it's probably a pretty good sandwich). On an earlier thread here another list of state sandwiches listed Virginia's as a "Country Ham Biscuit", a much better representative of our state.

                                                          Brats are a serious thing in Wisconsin.
