What Dish Is Your State Famous For, i.e., What Was Invented There?

I was reading the New Mexico thread about Huevos Rancheros and started wondering which dishes originated in my home state of California. I know that Cobb Salad was supposed to have been invented at the Brown Derby (or something like that) in Hollywood, but that Caesar Salad was supposed to have been invented just south of the Califa border in Tijuana.
I was trying to think of other dishes but couldn't come up with any. So what dish(es) originated in Oklahoma or Montana or New Jersey?
The particular variant of a crab salad called crab louis was supposedly concocted in San Francisco (though some say Portland). Cioppino is also identified with S.F. though it's obviously based on Mediterrean dishes.
Also, several creole and Cajun recipes.
Hot Fudge Sundaes ~~ CCBrown
Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas ~~ Balboa Island
French Dip Sandwich ~~ Phillippe's
Green Goddess Dressing ~~ Palace Hotel
