    Luther burger: sweet and salty? Yuck. Fried brain sandwich? That's disgusting. :scream:

    ETA: And so is the Michigan BLT. I think I just threw up a little.

    Yeah, ice cream is definitely my weakness. :lol:

    Everything else looks disgusting. :scream:

    Well, I've had the In-N-Out double double and it's really quite good...but I certainly wouldn't have it more than once a month! :lol:

    I must admit the Lobster roll looks tempting, as well as the Smith Island cake, but everything else looks pretty. :yikes:

    Is there a human being alive who can actually finish that Michigan BLT?

    Empanadas are amazing and I eat them way more often than I should :shuffle: Although I don't think Colombian ones are made with lard.

    I do love beignets, in moderation...

    Why the hell would anyone eat something called a garbage plate? :scream:

    The In n' Out double-double, beignets & burnt ends are all fantastic. I certainly enjoyed them when I had them & would eat them all again.

    That lobster roll looks yummy! I do like to sample chicken fried steak sometimes, if I order it at a restaurant I cut it up and the plate lasts me 3 different meals. Now that I think about it, I have no idea how people are able to finish their entire plate at restaurants. My hubby is 6'2 1/2" 220lbs and HE can't finish plates at restaurants!

    Ah, Rochester, my hometown. Yeah, the Garbage Plate is actually popular there, although I've never had one (thank goodness). It was really disturbing when I took a bunch of high schoolers out to a baseball game (I worked with city school kids, I'm not a creep), and a few of them ordered 2 and scarfed them down.

    As for me, I do like Lobster rolls, clam chowder, veggie empanadas, and catfish (although not quite like they prepare it down south).

    The huge burger stuff really grosses me out.

    I'm a New Englander. For many of the more traditional things like the chowdah and lobstah roll, they chose ones that are prepared by chains, rather than the ones that are served at the clam shacks. Really, cucumber and scallions in a lobster roll? The real recipe calls for lobster, celery, and as little mayonnaise as possible. We judge the quality by the ratio of lobster to celery and mayo. Too much of the minor ingredients and we won't go back. Some places may put too much butter/margerine on when grilling the roll, but that's usually not a problem at the places I go.

    That people would actually eat something called a Quadruple Bypass Burger at all, let along at somewhere called Heart Attack Grill weirds me out (I think the same about Fat Burger which just opened here), and I think it's disgusting that they would encourage already obese people to eat more unhealthy food by letting them eat for free. :(

    MA is a chocolate chip cookie????? are you kidding me? That's it? that's like a mere blip on the Fat screen. Obviously they didn't check the restaurants by the Universities;they seem to specialize in fast n' fatty!

    Empanadas are goooood (the veggie ones at least) but most of that looks so revolting that I just have no words for it. Meatloaf wrapped in bacon?! I love me some bacon, but that just takes it somewhere it shouldn't go.

    I live near a boring state. The fattest thing in Washington is a salad?

    That meatloaf looks fantastic.

    They did a version of that meatloaf once on Top Chef. And not only did they cover it in bacon, the chef deep fried it instead of putting it in the oven. I must confess, it looked kinda good, and the judges lurrrved it.

    I can't believe the fattiest thing they found in South Louisiana was a damn beignet, which have less fat (though not by much) than a Krispy Kreme donut, and if made right, they are light and airy. Though not 30 minutes after you eat them. A good chicken (real Cajun cooks leave the meat on the bone and skin on, usually dark meat) and sausage gumbo will run up some mega calories. What about bread pudding--bread, rum sauce, sometimes caramel and/or white chocolate? Oh, and fried chicken. HOW did no state in the south have fried chicken? :drama:

    Kentucky did have KFC's Double Down. Which I don't care if it does have Kentucky in the name, couldn't they have found something good like Derby Pie or Burgoo?
