If you are looking for some foods that are definitely not dull and bland (and pretty much truly American), try some: Bar-B-Que ribs or brisket; Cajun seafood gumbo or some Cajun BBQ shrimp; Tex-Mex fajitas, nachos, chili, or enchiladas; some chicken and dumplings (yum!); or chicken-fried offerings such as chicken-fried steak or chicken-fried chicken........the list goes on and on .

Hi, zakk. Well, American-style food encompasses many cultures/cuisines, so I'd have to ask you what foods you prefer and then I or other members could suggest choices for you. The selections are dizzying. Give us some hints and we'll run with them.

I agree that it is hard to consider what foods are truly American since there is such a blending of cultures in the food and it is different across the country. But here is a kind of cute link to 10 foods:
