What regional cuisine can New York call its own? Pizza? Hot dogs? Sorry, those foods are delicious, but there's nothing too special about them. No matter how great you think your local pizza joint is, somebody in Wyoming can make pizza just as good. And hot dogs—any ballpark in America has those.  

Texas is home to the nation's greatest barbecue. And let's not forget about Tex-Mex, which is Southern American cooking and Mexican food. This hybrid is actually what heaven is made of. Heaven is a brisket quesadilla. 

Then, there's Whataburger, the greatest fast-food joint on the face of the Earth, founded in none other than Corpus Christi. It looks like it will kill you, because it really will. The best foods are things that will kill you, not that bullshit healthy stuff. And that is fact.
