10 Regional American Foods to Try This July

There's no better way to ring in an all-American Summer than with hot dogs, hamburgers, fresh ears of grilled corn, and giant slices of watermelon. But if you're in search of a national adventure, might I suggest scoping out the country's regional food scene? Whether you're in Cincinnati or Central Texas, the United States of America is a veritable chest of gastronomic treasures just waiting to be discovered. A few of my favorite local specialties are right this way.

It is impossible to drive between Houston and Austin and NOT stop at Weikel's in La Grange. Yum. I might have to plan a road-trip just to stop by now. And the beignets at Cafe du Monde - sourcherries is right, to die for.
