I just don't remember the places I've eaten at. I remember a couple restaurants I ate at in Las Vegas that were phenomenal from 4 years ago, but I can't remember the places I ate at in, say, St. Louis from just two winters ago. It was just sub-par and nothing worth remembering. I don't know how that's difficult for people to understand. You think Atlanta has world class restaurants, so of course you're going to remember the names of the places you ate.

If you're coming from somewhere that is known for bagels and pizza, then why would you go somewhere that's known for something else and complain about it. hmmm? Then again if she had the best Pizza in the world in Atlanta she wouldn't admit it because it didn't come from NY or CA.

LOL! Sounds about right.

Because all my local small town friends want to go there and claim it's good pizza/bagels.

Some people seem to get overly emotional on this thread. The issue is food and what each state is characterized for. We know that Georgia probably has all the same chain restaurants that California has & that Atlanta probably has some very fine restaurants. But the difference is what do people eat and how the two states may differ. Southern food in general is not healthy food due to too much starch\ calories\ fat content\ cooking. It is not as healthy as what a typical person would eat in California. Most of what is grown in California is shipped out to the rest of the nation\ world but the availability of very diverse & very nutritious crops for the average Californian can not be matched in Georgia or anywhere in the U.S. Its a simple fact of life that food is produced in huge amounts in California & its citizens have more of the fresh & healthy products grown here.

No put-down on Georgia but Southern food is basically not healthy food, period!

In these "which state has better food threads" there should be a footnote. Anyone voting should have actually eaten food in both states at least several times to vote since food actually has to be tasted for the opinion to be valid.

Hearing it from someone else does not count

Still, that's like me going to New York and complaining about Creole or Vietnamese food. Same thing with California and all the ethnic places they have.

All good points. Don't fool yourself into thinking that people here eat the unhealthy stuff every day, though.

After lot's of visits to the Southland, I am absolutely convinced I could make a fortune there with an authentic Southern restaurant. It is very hard to find "good" Southern food outside of the region, and there is a market for it.

Oh, and btw, we don't share all of the same chains. We just got el Pollo Loco, and we still do not have Marie Callender's or In and Out.
