I can't fathom a burger better than an italian beef.
I like both but I'd probably prefer a really good smash burger.

The top 8:

1. OK: Onion smashburger
2. IL: Italian beef
3. GA:  Lemon pepper wings
4. LA: gumbo
5. MD: Crab cakes
6. CA: California burrito
7. CO: Colorado verde chili
8. MA: Clam chowder


I'd never heard of onion burgers being on Oklahoma thing, nor lemon pepper wings being a Georgia thing. The more you know.

Sports bars around here have wings of course with usually a large variety of sauces.  Lemon pepper is by no means anything singular.  I don't think we have a "state food" though, if pressed I might suggest shrimp and grits, as it is very popular here.  Boiled peanuts might be a state food, though it's not unique to GA of course.

I really like them.

Its apparently a combo of a scene from the show Atlanta and from the Atlanta strip club wing scene.

We miss you… (secretatlanta.co)

Dove tails on the ranking of ATL as some top tourist destination.  I didn't know indoor skydiving was unique to ATL.  It probably isn't.  Some of these things I'd opine are worth doing.

This is our year, Atlanta! From [color=var(--theme-primary-color)]candlelit concerts[/color] to indoor skydiving, check off your Atlanta bucket list with experiences you can only live in The Gate City.

I miss boiled peanuts in every gas station.  AZ people have no idea about them.

If this was a menu, I'd take the italian beef, some gumbo, and crab cakes.

Based on what you've said (or perhaps not said) before, I don't think you cook much, right? 

If you're a crab cake fan, I recommend actually learning to cook them. They're super easy. 

Also easy are these salmon cakes, given how expensive crab meat is... If you try it I recommend forming it into 4 big cakes rather than 8-9 small ones as suggested in the recipe...

All those things sound great but I’d have the wings a distant last.

I enjoy some wings from time to time, but I can't imagine they would be atop the list of ANY state's food.

This is how I feel about crab cakes

I do like good crab cakes quite a bit, and good NE clam chowder, and good gumbo (which I make at home, a variation probably).  I guess I like seafood, I see food and eat it.

The only thing I won't eat is fried liver.

I'm not too big on "sweet meats" or sweatbread but they are quite tasty.  Whoever named those items was out of his or her mind.

Yeah, I've made them a few times.  As you say, kind of expensive to probably do a good job, lol.  

I could eat 10 of those things, but 2-3 is a serving at a fair price.  

90% of places that serve them are low on the crab and high on the breadcrumbs, which stinks.

Nebraska's food was the runza. Get that runza!

I put crab with lobster and beef tenderloin in the category of foods that I understand people like, and it's not like I hate them, but what you get for the money spent is never worth it. Give me those wings.
