As you can see, the most disproportionately popular cuisines are donuts in New England, bagels in the Mid-Atlantic, soup in the Great Lakes, Southern in the Southeast, gelato in the Southwest, Tex-Mex in the Plains, buffets in the Rocky Mountains, and Mongolian grills in the far West.
And hey, Midwest? Stop hogging our A&W All American Foods.
