I still can’t believe McDonald’s has lobster rolls in some states.
Note: Some of these menu items and restaurants are available in multiple states – these are just the fan-favorites.
Alabama – Junkyard Dog from Sneaky Pete’s
It's got pretty much everything you could think of, from mustard to sauerkraut to their famous chili and signature sauce.
Alaska – Kodiak Islander from Arctic Roadrunner
It's also topped with bologna, salami, and ham.
Arizona – Carne Asada Fries from Humberto’s
The Carne Asada Fries are perfect drunk food. They also don't skimp on the cheese, guac, and pico.
Arkansas – Buffalo Chicken Finger Plate from Zaxby’s
I'm very picky about chicken, but I love their chicken plates.
California – Caliente Burger from Tommy’s
It's heartburn on a plate, but soooo worth it.
Colorado – Smothered Burrito from Illegal Pete’s
It's so messy, you'll have to use a fork and knife.
Connecticut – ‘Shroom Burger from Shake Shack
A burger + a portobello mushroom that's filled with cheese. You can't go wrong here.
Delaware – The Bobbie from Capriotti’s
It’s basically Thanksgiving on a sub roll. It’s a cold sandwich with roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and mayo. It’s SO good.
Florida – Chicken Tender Sub from Publix
Everyone in Florida has a crazy obsession with Publix. There are actually social media pages dedicated to alerting people whenever these particular subs go on sale.

Georgia – Chili Cheese Fries with Ranch from Krystal
They also pair perfectly with the chicken sandwich sliders.
Hawaii – Saimin from McDonald’s
It's a local Hawaiian-style ramen. They also serve Portuguese sausage and Spam with rice on their breakfast menu.
Idaho – Chef Lou’s Famous Idaho Ice Cream Potato from Westside Drive-In
I know it sounds nasty, but it’s really just a cleverly-shaped scoop of vanilla ice cream, rolled in cocoa, doused with chocolate syrup, and covered with whipped cream. Your eyes will say WTF, but your tastebuds will be happy.
Illinois – The Original Double ‘n Cheese Steakburger from Steak ‘n Shake
Get it with an Orange Freeze!
Indiana – Butter Burger from Culver’s
The pork tenderloin sandwich is great too!
Iowa – Mac ‘n’ Cheese Burger from Zombie Burger
They also make the most amazing milkshakes.
Kentucky – Whale of a Sandwich from Moby Dick
This is from Kentucky's local seafood restaurant, which is similar to Long John Silver’s.

Louisiana – Crawfish Étouffée Dog from Dat Dog
This is what I call a dog that is well-dressed. It's jazz improvisation on a bun.
Maine – Potato Doughnuts from The Holy Donut
They're so good, you'll want five.
Maryland – Mac & Cheese Dog from Heavy Seas AleHouse
It's exactly what it sounds like.
Massachusetts – Roast Beef Sandwich from Kelly’s Roast Beef
This sandwich is a staple in Massachusetts, and Kelly’s is the place to go for them.
Michigan – Pepperoni & Cheese Potato from The Potato Place
You can get potatoes the size of your head there. Then you can choose from sooooo many different toppings, and they'll bake it to perfection.
Minnesota – Sweet Martha’s Chocolate Chip Cookies from The State Fair
Mississippi – Big One from Ward’s
Ward's is a small chain in Mississippi, and their most iconic item is called “Big One,” which is a burger that's topped with chili, onions, and mustard.
Missouri – Biscuits and Gravy from McDonald’s
McDonald's biscuits and gravy are LIFE and are always my go-to quick breakfast.
Montana – Fried Pork Chop Sandwich from Pork Chop John’s
Nebraska – Yankee Burrito from Amigos
Amigos is a Mexican fast-food restaurant, combined with American options. The Yankee Burrito is a seasonal item, which is a hot dog and cheese, wrapped in a tortilla, and deep-fried!
Nevada – Chicken Tenders from Raising Cane’s
They'll be the best chicken tenders you've ever had.
New Hampshire – Lobster Rolls from McDonald’s
They're a specialty item in the summer, but of course they’ll never compare to getting one from the boardwalk off the local beach.
New Jersey – Fat Sandwich from RU Hungry
It's absolutely insane. The fillings can include, but are not limited to, french fries, chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, cheesesteak meat, Italian sausage, marinara sauce, ranch dressing, and onion rings. I plan on eating one if I ever find out I have 24 hours left to live.
New Mexico – Green Chile Double Cheeseburger from McDonald’s
They're soooo good.
New York – The Garbage Plate from Nick Tahoe Hots
It is a beautiful edifice. Half the plate is home fries, and the other half is macaroni salad. Then top it with any meat you want, like a cheeseburger or a hot dog or a sausage, and then smother it in their special secret meat sauce. You then cover it in mustard and ketchup and then shove it down your face. It is a caloric carpet bomb and should not be missed.
North Carolina – The Witch Doctor from Whataburger
It’s a mix of all the sodas, some pickle juice, and a few pickles.
North Dakota – Firehouse Meatball from Firehouse Subs
And the pickle is so good, too.
Ohio – Tacos from Burger King
Our Burger King also had baked potatoes and chili, but they didn’t stay on the menu for very long.
Oklahoma – Theta Burgers from Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler
This isn't super crazy, but it is one of the best burgers ever. They come with barbecue sauce, bacon, cheddar cheese, and an insane amount of pickles.
Oregon – Voodoo Dolls from Voodoo Doughnut
Any native Oregonian can attest to their yumminess!
Pennsylvania – Pastrami & Cheese from Primanti Bros.
The sandwich is huge, and it's topped with fries and coleslaw.
Rhode Island – Pizza Strips from D. Palmieri’s Bakery
It's pizza that's served at room temperature, minus the cheese but with tons of tomato sauce. The crust is delicious and thick. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
South Carolina – Hash Brown Scramble Bowl from Chick-fil-A
South Dakota – Chicken Grilled Burrito from Taco John’s
If you've never had it, you've gotta try it!!!!
Tennessee – Cheddar Rounds from Pal’s Sudden Service
Hash brown bites with real cheddar cheese inside. Yum!

You can't go wrong with a fried chicken taco.

Bacon cheeseburger on a glazed doughnut!

You can get just about anything you can think of on a biscuit there. America!
