    Your #1 Favorite Thing To Eat In Specific Cities?

    New York - Pizza, no where specific though. I was there the other week and I got some overpriced late night pizza. Still way better than every other overpriced late night pizza place I've been too.

    Baltimore - Obviously crab cakes. But I love this place there called Joe Benny's. They are known for their foccacia and meatballs. It's in their Little Italy area, which is very very little. But it's actually a nice little area to check out.

    Buffalo - Probably the Beef of Weck, probably.

    Rochester - Where I live. Garbage plates are our thing, but specifically with Zweigles White Hot Dogs. There's also some good poutine here. I'm not sure if that's a trendy food these days across the country, or if it's because we're fairly close to Canada.

    Pittsburgh - I've never had a Primanti's sandwich. I don't think I can comment here. I've had some of good food in this city though.

    San Diego - Burritos. All damn day.

    San Fran - Chinese. All damn day.

    Chicago - Never had enough to really judge.

    Nothing else comes to the top of my head. I'm sure ya'll can load this thread up. I'm going to Nashville next month for the first time. Any suggestions? Maybe we'll stop in Cincinnati for some grub on the way.

    Austin - Barbecue (specifically brisket and beef ribs) and Kolaches

    Houston - Pho and Fajitas

    Denver - Beer and underrated Banh Mi

    LA - Tacos or anything Korean or anything Thai

    Baltimore - Crab

    Nola - Muffalata or Oyster Po Boy or anything really, too many things to mention

    San Francisco - Cioppino

    Seattle - Oysters

    NYC - nothing in particular, really overrated food city imo

    Haven't been to too many different cities where I ordered something specific but:

    Boston/Cape Cod - Clam Chowder
    Philly - Cheesesteaks
    Florida/Gulf - any fish really, gator.

    oh and Nashville - chicken fried steak, biscuit and gravy

    I'm going to be a little more specific.

    Memphis
    Barbecue nachos from Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous/BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos from Silky O'Sullivan's.
    I used to enjoy BBQ nachos at ballgames until I tried them in Memphis and it ruined BBQ nachos anywhere else for me. They just don't compare. I really couldn't choose between either place as the better option, so I listed both. Both are made the same way; BBQ sauce, nacho cheese, smoked meat, jalapeños, and the ingredient that sets them apart for me, they both sprinkle a dry rub on top. If you're at Silky O'Sullivan's, get them with a Diver bucket.

    New Orleans
    Cajun jambalaya pasta from Oceana Grill.
    This isn't just my favorite dish in New Orleans, but probably my favorite pasta dish I've ever had. It's fettuccine pasta with alligator sausage, shrimp, onions, bell peppers in a Creole sauce.

    That sounds delicious

    Baltimore and Annapolis have a great breakfast restaurant called Iron Rooster. The Cake and Cake (pancake and crab cake) is very good, and they have homemade pop-tarts. Of course, also getting crabs and rockfish are great as well.

    That's no good, but as much as I like Gordon Ramsay, I hate that show. At least the American version. Just a bunch of overproduced and instigated episodes.

    I remember that episode now. Looking at it online, it has new owners now, but has very good reviews on Google and with over 2,000 reviews.

    They were. I've never had anything but great service there and the food is good. Like any restaurant, the menu is hit or miss, but the jambalaya pasta is most definitely a hit.
