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.

    If you're chowing down on a runza ( with a capital R, as in Runza,) sandwich there's a good chance you're in the great state of NEBRASKA, not North Dakota. The Runza was started by the Evertt family in Lincoln,NE. They later franchised the Runza in other states. It is Great!

    Chipped ham sandwiches in Pittsburgh - processed ham sliced so thin you can see through it. Spread your white bread with lots of ketchup or mayo, pile on the chipped ham, and enjoy! The ultimate comfort food, and since I no longer live in the Pittsburgh area I can no longer get these - so sad!

    My hometown is known more for its abundance of meth labs, teen pregnancies, backwater hillbilly/rednecks & a pretty black/white racially segregated community as far as housing goes with little to no other races populating the area (my mexican fiancee is truly a sight to behold down there). Not so much kniwn for any special local fare in the food sense..

    El Paso, Texas

    Machaca is stripped roast beef, mixed with eggs, roasted green peppers (usually long green chilis), onions, tomatoes, garlic, cheese sauce and a few others things like salt and black pepper spices. In El Paso it usually is a breakfast plate. It's typically eaten with fired flour tortillas, but some prefer corn. Rice and beans are the side dishes that are typical to most Mexican dishes. It's also widely considered a great anti hangover dish, but in truth it's just good.
