San Fran because certain C-D posters bragging like it's the best thing since sliced bread,
Scrantix and Montclair18 in particular and big SF-Bay Area boosters.
Frisco is nice but it ain't that good.

They are both southern cities, so what do you expect.

I voted Boston, NYC, Philadelphia. Boston has plenty of braggarts-the only problem is most of them are not from the actual city.

And also the kind of people who look down on you for going to Red Lobster and Olive Garden when the "hip" restaurants and bars they frequent are not really more expensive or classy.
Hmm... I haven't seen much of what you describe in the first 3 sentences. People in the DC area enjoy living in nice homes and driving nice cars. They hardly know much about Dallas, except at one time a lot of school kids used to root for the Cowboys and their cheerleaders when they were doing good I guess. lol.

The selection and kinds of restaurants in DC, Maryland and Virginia have increased dramatically in the last 10-15 years. So, nowadays people might consider it a little "simplistic" to go to a chain restaurant when you have so many other choices. Personally, I enjoy trying out all kinds of different ethnic foods and it makes for a lot more variety in dining experience.
