I've never understood the tendency to make burgers and sandwiches so big that no human could possibly fit them in their mouth. How the fark are you even supposed to eat that?

California showed In-N-Out Burger??  Really???

You know how I know the author never visited a decent San Diego Mexican joint?  They didn't list Carne Asada Fries.  that's right mu-fuggahs...pile of french fries, topped with carne asada beef, guacamole, salsa fresca, cheese (sometimes shredded, sometimes nacho sauce), sour cream, and as much salsa as you can handle on the side.

First off, the trend for very large portions is in part to make "big eaters" feel comfortable because big eaters are often the most profitable customers. They feel better if they can eat 2 or 3 servings worth packaged as a "normal" single serving. Also doubling the amount of food in a serving costs much less than producing 2 equivalent servings.

Now as regard the super large servings that very few would be able to completely eat, they are usually not meant to be bought but instead they are used to reframe the very large 2 or 3 serving portions as not that huge because there is something hugher.

This is similar to many consumer product lines where a top-of-the line product may cost a lot and have too many features and it isn't  meant to sell well. Instead its presence promotes the buying of those products 1 or 2 down from the top and if it was removed from the line the old 1 down wouldn't sell as well because it becomes the new top.

Louisiana: Beignet

Yea, well..It's fried dough.  But how about a po-boy made of hollowed-out French bread, with layer upon layer of bacon, lettuce, tomato, and fried shrimp, then topped off with melted butter?

TuteTibiImperes: I lived in Delaware for over 15 years and not only did I never see one of those crab rangoon pastry-puffs, I never even heard of them.

Scrapple would be a much better choice, though they gave NC livermush, which is similar, but NC could just as easily get whole-hog bbq and the problem would be solved.

I've lived my whole life in NC, and I've never once heard of livermush. And there are some down-home deep-South bonified rednecks in my family. 

I'm going to go with 'this author picked crap at random out of Google searches'.

Bah, the fried brain is unique, but it's certainly not delicious. Very spongy texture and you're getting all the flavor of the breading and oil.

Pulled brain (like in a slow cooker) with hot sauce is delicious. That's much closer to a sweet bbq flavor. Or, if you want to really show the state pride, get a fried tenderloin sandwich with home-jarred pickles.

ultramarinblaa: This list doesn't make much sence.
Eg. Crab Louis Salad look like a rather low fat dish, but it's on the list because it's served with a mayo dressing.

Newsflash!!!! anything becomes high fat if you cover it in mayo

You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It's just common sense

Lamb? A Smithfield ham?
Good grief. You could walk through any grocery store (every grocery store!) and find 100 things worse. Hell....you could find 50 just in the cereal aisle.

Sure...if you make a QuintupleStupidBurger as a store advertising prank, it is bad for you. But no one actually eats those things.
OK, maybe Dewey Oxburger, but he was gonna die of fatness anyway.

El Dudereno: Isn't frying butter kind of like boiling ice?

Reminds me of the time I tried "fried Coke" at a state fair.  There was not, in fact, Coke inside, nor did it taste remotely like Coca-Cola.  Supposedly some Coke was used in the batter.  Essentially a stupid marketing gimmick.

I have several problems with this list.

First, it doesn't count for a state if it is made by a chain restaurant that is not unique to that state.

Secondly, for Arizona, the Heart Attack Grill moved to Vegas around two years ago. I did eat there before they moved and yes, the burgers were pretty damn good.

Third and final, growing up and living in Indiana until my late 20's (moved out to AZ about 5 years ago) I have never, ever, ever heard of a fried brain sandwich. Seriously, WTF? And I've been to the state fair several times.
Now what we do have there that I haven't seen anywhere else are pork fritters. They're made by a company in Muncie. I freaking love them, especially pan fried in oil. Haven't had one in years.

This list is useless. Eating fat is not solely responsible for weight gain. They should have listed a total caloric content as well as a cabohydrate content.

As it is the last thing they listed, Lamb, is actually packed with healthy fats and overall a much healthier meat than grain fed beef or pork/bacon/ham. This is because they do not feed lambs grain, but instead let them graze like all sheep. So if I am looking for grass fed beef and can't find it I always get lamb as a back up.
