are you assuming this or are Atlanta and Dallas really ranked number 6 and 7? Because I know that Seattle, San Fransisco, DC, Miami, and Boston usually rank very high on these lists. Even then, what does it matter who is 6 and 7?It means that Houston beat out Atlanta, Seattle, DC, Miami, and Boston (I'm assuming that San Francisco is 4), that's really good. Those are all great cities for restaurants.

Not every thread has to be Atlanta vs Houston vs Dallas. I think it's time to give it a rest. This dance is getting old.

Well, don't tell me about it...there are people who thrive on these contests, but I'm not one of them. Although I choose to live in one of these 3 cities, I really like all 3 and have many friends in each.

It matters because if someone is saying that Houston is clearly superior to the other cities because it is ranked #4, then that is not a true statement IF the other cities are ranked 2 or 3 places behind Houston. That would prove that all three cities are very competitive with each other - not that Houston is far superior. See what I mean?

I don't know where Atlanta and Dallas rank...I don't really care that much. It was a hypothetical statement.
