I know the south is the most religious area in the country, and the west and northeast tend to be less religious. Just going to take a guess and say the most religious major cities are San Antonio, Memphis and New Orleans. While the least religious would be Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Buffalo.

While not necessarily a list of the most and least religious cities in the US. It is a list of cities of the US that take the Bible the most and least literally. The 5 most bible minded cities were all in the South with the 5 least bible minded cities in the US were all in the Northeast except for Cedar Rapids, IA.

They must only ask millennials the question. Pittsburgh should be higher on the list. This city introduced me to the Friday Fish Fry, the Feast of the Seven Fishes, and the King Cake. Some of the local national fast food restaurants even offer fish specials during Lent.
