ITT: food related quirks specific to your town
here in Peoria, IL, there's a local pizza chain called Monical's and everyone dips it in their French dressing, or as they call it "sweet and tart" (your mother's a sweet tart)

      I swear you could make a thread about some dive bar in the middle of bumfrick nowhere and somebody on Culinaly will have eaten there before.
      I'm always in disbelief because it seems like only 100 people actively post here and half of them aren't even American

        I'll test that. Funk N Dive in Ogden Utah has gone downhill since they stopped 5 dollar steak dinners.

    Up in Dixon, IL there's a place called Angelo's that does spaghetti pizza. Always wanted to try it

    Struggling to think of anything like this for Hartford. We kinda just do whatever. Don't have much culture here.

      By do whatever I assume you mean lots of heroin. Hartford is one of the worst places I've been and I worked in Africa for a while.

        Yeah, after night falls it’s dead except for whatever weirdos lurk at night. And even in the day there are plenty of neighborhoods you don’t wanna be around. Godforsaken place.

        I honestly can’t think of a single food or dish that Hartford could even claim influence on, never mind inventing

    I thought I'd post something interesting and not horrible, about Peoria, because this thread AIN'T IT....fricking sweet 'n sour sauce on pizza.

    Ironic. My ex moved out there after going full schizo. She must be right at home.

    Not sure if it's a "food" quirk per say, but in San Diego the local ICE office frequently raids all the good taco shops.

    On two occasions I've seen non-hispanic regulars activly interfere. Not because they care about the people, but because the raids always results in the taco shops shutting down for a week or two after.

    My city once had its own "style" of pizza which was just regular pizza poorly made with a shit sauce. That place closed down and no one has attempted a local pizza "style" since. It's a small town.

    I live in Amish country, so I've got plenty related to that, but that's sort of regional. Cup cheese. Looks like cum. Might taste good, IDK.

    There's a diner down the street from me. I got a "Mexican omelette" once. It was an omelette with spaghetti sauce on it. I've yet to find a place that's really good. I miss good Mexican food.

      I feel you brother. I moved from SoCal to Virginia about a year ago and what passes for Mexican here is beyond terrible.

      Everything from tortilla chips served with ranch instead of salsa, to Kraft singles in enchiladas, to "made to order" horchata (they bring you a glass of milk and mix in cinnamon and powdered sugar in front of you).

      It's so bad that Taco Bell is the high water mark.

        I've lived in the southwest my entire life. I think if I moved somewhere where mexican food wasn't native I'd die of sadness. I fricking love street food around here.

    In my state we all drink this shit, it's putrified corn extract or something, the whole point is that you never clean the pots you make it in so the microorganisms keep fermenting it or something?
    I don't know how good or bad it is but it's fricking delicious
