A burger stands a solid chance of deliciousness just about anywhere, and great chocolate cake knows no geographic boundaries. If you're chowing down on a runza sandwich, though, there's a good chance you're in the great state of Nebraska. A big, bubbling dish of burgoo in front of you means that you're kicking back in Kentucky, livermush has landed you in the Tarheel State, and a steamed cheeseburger centers you smack dab in Meriden, Connecticut.

CNN Money is in search of the Best Places to Eat in America, and they're asking readers to share their favorite hometown dishes and explain why they're so loved.

Submit your favorite dish using iReport and ask your friends and neighbors to vote. The food with the most hometown support will be named Fan Favorite.
