The Phoenix metro area is very underrated in the food scene.

How is LA underrated in any way? I usually see it as #1 to #4 depending on the metric, but never anything lower than that. Sacramento though seems like it would be great, given the diversity and the fresh ingredients being readily available.

It seems everyone will name their hometown.

Nope...live near Orlando FL and it's not even close to underrated. I visit both DC and Asheville often, and from my recent experiences continue to find them underrated/overlooked food scenes.

Underrated or unknown, but I must say that Knoxville, TN had some great restaurants while I was there last month!
It's not comparable to Chicago or NYC by any means, but far better than most similar sized cities I have had the pleasure to visit.

Detroit. Food was one thing I did like there.

I grew up in Texas where people would think it's the be-all, end-all of food. Go on the Houston forum, it's like the top selling point. When I left people would ask what I would do for Mexican food. Same thing I do anywhere else, find a taco truck. It was more the Louisiana stuff that I was going to miss.

Really I can go anywhere and miss something from somewhere else.

Raleigh is very underrated. Forbes Ranked Brewery Bhavana as one of the 10 best Restaurants in the world

I know exactly what you are saying. I plan to leave all this Southern down home cooking goodness one day at retirement to one of those chilly Great Lakes cities - looking forward to Friday night supper club fried fish in one hand and a Whiskey Sour in the other!

That's if all the fried foods dipped in Ranch dressing down here doesn't kill me first
