America is a nation of comfort foods. Everyone has their own idea of a perfect meal —Something that makes them feel happier with each bite after a long day. Those favorite meals are often determined, at least in part, by where you live. In the spirit of determining which comfort foods reign supreme, Comfortable Table compiled a list of the best of the best in each state.

So, what's Nebraska's best comfort food? Runza Sandwiches. Here's what Comfortable Table had to say about them:

"Runza Sandwich is made from fluffy bread, seasoned beef, cabbage, and onions. It's the food of comfort in Nebraska, and it can be thought of like a hot pocket with class. It's the perfect after school snack or what you should go to after a long day at work. As an alternative, you can also go for the German Russian beef sandwich as your food of comfort."

If you want a Runza Sandwich, you have to go to Runza. They've been around since 1949 and have expanded to multiple locations across the midwest.
