Deep South Magazine has ranked Winston-Salem, along with Atlanta, Birmingham, Oxford MS, Savannah, Baton Rouge, Houston, and Durham, as the eight best foodie cities in the South. Good reading.

Just a slight correction: it's a list of eight of the South's best foodie cities, not the eight best foodie cities. Slight difference of wording, but different meanings. But it's definitely great press for Winston-Salem.

Glad you pointed out that distinction. I love W-S as much as anybody, and happy for this publicity, but I couldn't see how they could include W-S and leave out Asheville, and possibly even Greenville, SC. Now it makes more sense.

Or, ah, Charleston.

Not many of the transplants I know.

And the thing about these "food cities" lists is that editors skew toward the cities people don't think of first. People KNOW Charleston and N'awlins have second-to-none food cultures. They might not know how good the food is in Winston. And it's not just this site. Southern Living raised eyebrows last year by naming Durham the south's "tastiest town." But they had their reasons (besides just selling magazines, which was surely part of it )

But all that aside, Winston does have a very good food culture, and the spots they mentioned in that post only scratch the surface.
