15. Atlanta

Population: 5,286,728 (MSA)
Atlanta is so much more than Chick-fil-A. Actually, that’s a lie. But you DO have to eat something on Sundays, and ATL’s a hotbed of Georgia food, plus some of the best ethnic food in the entire South. Do you know what happens when you combine the native cuisine of a huge Korean immigrant population with all that Southern food? Miso-scented brisket and some of the country’s finest wings. (And a lot of Seoul food jokes.) The city has no shortage of soul food spots, from the big names, like Gladys Knight and her famed chicken and waffles, to tiny holes in the wall with deliciously rich and porky collards swimming in potlikker. Plus, there’re peaches. And peach cobbler. And peach pie. And peach jam.

If you think soul food is the only type of food Atlanta does well then you are missing out on a lot of great food.

Ranking us as 15th is just ridiculous. We have one of the hottest dining scenes in the U.S. here.

I'm waiting for that poster who hasn't eaten anything besides Applebee's and Waffle House to come in here and say that she agrees...

We should rank at least as high as we do on population charts.

I don't think 15 is a bad ranking necessarily (although Louisville at 16 is just lol...higher than DALLAS wtf?!?), but the writeup makes me question the ranking. Aside from pointing out our large Korean population, it didn't even hint at an understanding of Atlanta's dining scene.

Just in the last week I've eaten some amazing Vietnamese, Mexican, Szechuan and Korean. All of the establishments authentic and filled with the beautiful people who brought these cuisines to Atlanta. I adore Atlanta's international community.
