    I dunno, I would say Texas is a tie between Tex-Mex, BBQ, and Chinese.

        In my street, you can choose from Italian, American, Chinese, Turkish, Indian, Pakistani, Scottish... - and that's one street in a city of 44,000 (we're a city because we have a cathedral, not because it takes 6 months to walk across the centre).

        People bring their food and traditions with them.

              Well the first question would be, how representative of each state's population are Yelp users? Their definition of "disproportionate" is also a bit on the fuzzy side.

              Going by the actual number of restaurants around me I'd say BBQ, and Mexican are the one's physically over-represented. Probably because those are easier for a mom & pop operators to set up and run. The rest are either chains or too expensive for my blood.
              Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

                In the TV food shows like Hell's Kitchen, Yelp reviewers are now sometimes sitting alongside with Michelin Start Chefs as judges.

                The simplicity and short list of ingredients is why BBQ and Mexican are everywhere. But because BBQ exists is a part of just about any cuisine I think it should not qualify.

                And how the hell is 'Southern' cuisine disproportionate in Southern States?

                I think Japanese is the disproportionately popular food in America is Japanese.

                  Living in the I-95 corridor between Baltimore and DC you can find damn near anything you have the stomach for. I'm going to miss this when we retire.

                    Oh you mean the oatmeal and offal pudding we flog to foreigners ?

                    Real haggis is banned for export as the populations still haven't fully recovered from the '47 and '49 seasons when the hunt (haggis' 2-year breeding cycle means that the animals are only hunted in odd years between mid August and late September) was conducted using war surplus Jeeps and PIATs.

                    These days, the return to steam-powered carts and the 2-inch haggis gun (which has a 9ft barrel and - even with the cart to absorb the recoil - a kick like a mule (after spending the 91 season as a gunner, I was convinced I'd never use my right arm again, but was fine once the bruising healed) and strict quotas are allowing the population to recover.

                    We'll never return to the plague proportions of WW2, (the '41, '43 and '45 seasons didn't happen, and the White heather on which the animals fed was virtually wiped out), but we hope that there will be a viable level in the next 10 years.

                      Given the number of Chinese eateries and their endurance, I disagree.

                        PAKISTANI? In Illinois? I can damn sure tell you the far southern end is more of a Southern flavor. Especially when there's like 3-4 catfish places in one county?

                          North of Houston along I-45 you can get just about anything. Along I-59 there is a place before Livingston called the Texas Grill that I really like. You can get Chicken Fried Steak, Steaks and Buffalo meat half pound Hamburgers, but I go to get a salad and a Baked Potato. I love huge Baked Potatoes!

                          In Louisiana you see more Seafood places that also serve steaks. Cajun means more than burning the meat Black.

                              Just that most BBQ is most likely grilled meat and not BBQ meat. Night and day difference.
