    What is America's national food?

    Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding was England's, but now I think is probably chicken masala:]

    According to Wikepedia it is apple pie, hamburger and hot dog.
    I think in each state you will find that there is probably a different food for each state. There are so many nationalities in America that you will probably get many answers for your question. I am assuming that you are referring to the United States of America when you say America.

    Hot dogs, apple pie and hamburgers are usually cited.  Here in Texas, we love tamales and chicken fried steak.  JustaskSusan is correct.

    I would like to add the US celebrates the food of our immigrants.  I even think hot dogs and apple pie have German origins.  I am not clear on where hamburgers came from.  Pizza restaurants are found in almost every town, along with a Chinese restaurant.   If you want to get technical, popcorn is a native american food.  Roast beef is very popular although I have never tried Yorkshire Pudding.  The foods of Thailand, Vietnam, Morocco, France, England, and Spain are just a short drive from where I live.  I saw a food truck selling Korean Tacos.  Maybe that is new national food.

    There is no national American food. America is a huge nation with a patchwork quilt of cultures. It's doubtful it can be called a nation atall, actually. Foods in America  vary as much as the people.
