Real estate has "location, location, location." Here in Western Kentucky, we have "barbecue, barbecue, barbecue." Usually hickory-smoked, long and slow until the meat falls apart. Served with all the fixins', which would include a good dose of the preparer's secret sauce, coleslaw and French fries.

Another typical food here is fried catfish usually served with a slice of white bread (like Wonder) and a slice of onion and a couple of dill pickle spears. A "plate" meal would also include some slaw, fries and a helping of white beans and ham. Are we having carbs yet?

All yum, yum, yum!

Katie, don't you and Buck live in "burgoo" country? Or is that another part of Kentucky?

Even though burgoo is a Kentucky dish, it is regional. And, no, it's not typically served here. It's good and is similar to something served in the north country - Minnesota, for example - called booya. I lived in northern Minnesota on the Iron Range and booya was always served at a summer festival called "Old Settlers Day." I like both booya and burgoo.

Yes, Bob Dylan is from Hibbing, which is where I lived. And it is beautiful country there. I loved living there.

I have to say that if Chicago has a signature dish though, it has to be the deep dish pizza. So many great places to get a deep dish in Chicago and the surrounding areas. That's definitely one of the things I miss most about Chicago.
Absolutely, Chicago's deep dish pizza is a very famous dish. It's something they're very proud of doing so well. It is not so much a regional dish though - just something they are very good at.

And Portillo's is great for Italian beef sandwiches. I have a Portillo's restaurant within a mile of my home. Yummy!

gray peas and bacon is a Very local dish almost unique to this area (and they can keep it as far as I`m concerned).

it`s basicly dried pigeon peas boiled down into a gray/brown mush, served with chopped up bacon that`s been fried, the fat from the bacon goes over the peas too.

Yuck!

Yes, I'm game to try most things, but I think your very descriptive 'yuk' just about covers it for that dish!

Here in the Bahia de Banderas region, shrimp is on every menu, cooked in many different ways. The worst I've ever had is shrimp surrounded by a big glop of cream cheese and a strip of bacon wrapped around it. Yuk. But if you are ever in the Puerto Vallarta area, have some fresh seafood. The other day, I ordered a sopa pescado from a little restaurant here in Bucerias. I had a rich tomato/chile broth filled with lobster, crab, shrimp and fish. For 850 pesos (about $8)! It was wonderful. Of course, there are also tamales, pozole, quesidillas, tacos and birria (goat stew - haven't tried that). Wonderful food.
