When you think of American cuisine, hamburgers, pizza and apple pie come to mind.

But each state has its own touch of flavor.

The Huffington Post and Yelp have teamed up to show the most disproportionately popular food in each state.

Coastal states seem to be crazy about seafood, that’s no surprise.

However, Utah ranks Hawaiian food at the top of the list, which appears a bit more unusual.
