I love Asian and Mexican food, so California gets my vote.

Home cooked food: Georgia

Everything else: California.

I'd give the edge to California because the food culture there is much more diverse. However, when it comes to home cooked American food, I think Georgia has a clear advantage.


I'd rather have Asian, Mexican and other ethics food from California.

I'd rather have a meatloaf, mac and cheese, green beans and cornbread from Georgia.

Overall, by far: California > Georgia

California's fortes are ethnic cuisines, hamburgers, and fresh, organic fare. While Atlanta has its share of good ethnic fare, it can't touch what can be found in Orange County, Los Angeles or especially the Bay Area. While Atlanta has it share of fresh, organic fare to cater to its yupster crowd, a trip to Los Angeles, much of the Central Coast, and especially the Bay Area would satisfy's anyone's cravings. The Bay Area has the best food scene I've experienced anywhere in the world; as a bonus, it's really about food and far less about scene than it is in other American cities.

However, I would rather have fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, fried okra, boiled peanuts, mashed potatoes, green beans, and just other good ol' Southern fare in Georgia--honestly, in that regard, California can't compare. These foods are simply mouthwatering.

I love both Asian & Mexican cuisines and I love Southern food so it depends on what I'm in the mood for, though I'm sure both states have phenomenal seafood.

Of course, you can get this food anywhere in the country, but it just taste better coming from the south!!!

California may have better crab legs, shrimp, and as u stated Mexican food!!!
I can always tell when someone is a Yankee around thanksgiving, because they will say stuffing instead of dressing like we all do. I also notice they say pop or soda instead of coke too.
