  • For us, I'd say: 
  • chicken fried steak,
  • fried okra,
  • onion-fried burgers,
  • sand plum jelly,
  • watermelon
  • Indian Tacos
  • calf fries/mountain oysters
  • squeaky cheese (cheese curds)

Anything seafood.  Chowders, ravioli, crusted, seared, piccata, beer battered, stews, on a roll, in salads. :)

Lobster Rolls!! Love them and love to live by the water to get some great ones here Laughing

I love lobster rolls, too. Believe it or not, the best one I ever had was two years ago in Tucson, Arizona. We stumbled on the place when the place we were wanting to go turned out to be closed on Sunday. We're going to Tucson next weekend and I am wracking my brain trying to remember what the name of the place was so we can go again.

I had the BEST Taco Salad in Arizona (basically the best fried tortilla around the salad). Never found anything as good yet. Will be going to Mexico soon though so maybe I will be able to try one there.  Laughing
