Delicious, strange and must-try regional dishes from across the U.S.

En español | The United States today is an eater's paradise, rich with signature state dishes, bold ethnic flavors, and plenty of good ol' American creativity. We’ve gathered the best from all 50 states. Did we get it right? Go to #greatstatefood to tell us what you think.

Best of the West

This region encompasses states as diverse as Hawaii — where they eat Spam musubi (right) — and Wyoming, and their foods are just as unique.


Southern Comfort

You've got key lime pie (right), possum pie, peach pie and plenty of other savory delights from Texas to Virginia.


Feast in the East

Seafood's big in New England and the mid-Atlantic, including quahogs (stuffies) and lobster rolls (right).


Meaty Midwest

Lots of meat and some sweets from the heartland, from Kansas City barbecue and toasted ravioli (right) in St. Louis.
