That's the place over in Weldon right? We stopped there once on the way through. Not bad.. not the best BBQ I have had.

Yep, that's the place.....granted it ain't exactly local to where I live...about 30 or so miles away....but it is one of the best in these parts.

I live in Minnesota, but grew up in Wisconsin. So here are some regional Wisconsin foods (pretty much statewide) that I recall from my youth:

Bratwurst
Polish Sausages
Sauerkraut
Beer Cheese Soup (with popcorn "croutons" - yum)
Tater Tot Casserole
Cornish Pasties

Also popular, but not necessarily regional, were a lot of eastern European type foods like Pierogis and stuffed cabbage rolls.

why are so many polish foods mentioned as regional u.s.?

lol, i'll avoid the obvious joke.

and i won't mention it was polish immigrants who came up with city chicken... (eastern poland was part of germany back then).

i'm kidding! relax. i married a pole, so i get to make fun.

ok, picking a regional nyc dish would be tough, but i'd have to say that an open faced reuben samdwich would be quintessential nyc.

and a taylor ham (taylor brand pork roll), fried egg, and cheese on a hard roll or bagel would be true jersey.
