The waffle cone was invented in Norfolk,Va.

I thought it was in St. Louis during the 1906 (?) World's Fair. An ice cream vendor ran out of bowls and tried using a rolled up waffle to hold the ice cream.

While it certainly doesn't taste good, it is very famous in my area:

Lutefisk (Codfish that has been soaked in lye for about a week, and then boiled to a gelatiny goodness. Served with mustard. BLEH! Christmas dish)

Lefse (Scandinavian flatbread. Very tasty warm with butter and sugar, rolled up. Traditional at Christmas.)

Swedish meatballs (Also a Christmas dish. Every grandmother has her own recipe.)

And, more of a Minnesota favorite, but famous locally too: (made with wild rice harvested from local lakes.)

Wildrice soup:

Yes. We are very much meat and potatoes country.

Atlanta's got a lot of soud food and barbecue in the Sweet Auburn area.

I think it could also be argued that the standard naked dog or burger could have a significant stake in our city with the main Varsity being located there.
