Yes! South Mississippi is known for it's seafood and is more influenced by New Orleans/Cajun cuisine than traditional southern cooking. We have a lot of common culture heritage with Louisiana natives in our area and not as much with our friends in North Mississippi. Although, the coast of MS has become somewhat of a melting pot with the influence of the military bases and retirees and Vietnamese population.

Barq's Rootbeer was also started in New Orleans/Biloxi and I think of that when I think of food down here.

NY is more than NYC and Buffalo (BTW one for Buffalo would be wings! )
-Apples, cider, etc (NY is I think 2nd to Washington in Apple production, I pass by countless apple orchards/farms every day)
-wine from the Finger Lakes and Niagra regions

Maine - lobster
Pennsylvania - cheese steaks
California - wine
Alabama - biscuits and gravy
Florida - key lime pie and conch fritters
Texas - BBQ, Tex-Mex
Lousiana - cajun/creole food and Natchitoches meat pies (and the best food anywhere IMO!)

Born and raised in Ohio. Why are we known for 'chili?' Please don't say Skyline-ulk. Ohio to me means Angus steaks and fresh sweetcorn, tomatoes and did I mention sweetcorn? Just ask ironchef Michael Symon. He'll tell ya 'sweetcorn!'

Pork roll, egg and cheese on a hard roll is a staple in our family!
Jersey tomatoes and corn, too, although only in the summer

What ? It's a diner staple. Taylor is a brand name of pork roll. It's usually cooked like sausage and put on a hard Kaiser roll with or without cheese.

You can get that in MN, too, oddly!

MN - walleye, hot dish, sweet corn, lefse, etc.

I don't think of NYC as pizza, either. I think of NYC as street food.

Chicago - pizza! Yum.
San Fran - clam chowder, sourdough, Ghiradelli
Texas - Tex-Mex
Missouri - BBQ
Ohio - chili
WV - possum (sorry...one too many Andrew Zimmern shows!)
PA - Amish food
MD and all the way south - seafood
ME - lobster
Vermont - maple

No joke, I never heard of it, and we are not Muslim or Jewish. Is it a South Jersey thing maybe?

ME- Lobster

NC- BBQ
Add to NC's BBQ: Cheerwine, Cherry-Lemon Sundrop, RC cola, moon pies, fried chicken, liver pudding/liver mush -- same thing but goes by two names, pecan pie, Red Velvet cake, buttermilk biscuits, country ham & red eye gravy, Brunswick stew, fried seafood on the coast . . . and let's not neglect sweet tea.

Maryland lobster, I can see.

I couldn't say about North Carolina, but looking up the tourist guides it talks about livermush made from pigs and fried chicken, no mention of BBQ.
Note that liver mush is made from pork products -- not pork and fried chicken.

BBQ is absolutely the quintessential NC food. For y'all Yankees, when we say BBQ, we mean pulled pork. I know y'all say you're BBQing when you're cooking out hamburgers and hot dogs -- for us, BBQ is a noun, whereas for y'all it's a verb. Specifically, Lexington style BBQ with a vinegar-based sauce (as opposed to a tomato-based sauce).
