Does your town/region have a "special" sandwich. Philly has the cheesesteak, NY corned beef, chicago hot dogs and Italian beef. My wife is from Springfield Il and they have the Horsehoe. It's basically any normal sandwich: ham, turkey, hamburger, etc. But they cut it in half, spread it apart and place french fries in the middle. Then they cover the whole thing in cheese sauce. Not Cheese Wiz, but a classic bechemel (sp?) sauce with cheese. An half order is called the Pony Shoe. That was always half the fun of being on tour, eating the local specialities.
