America's Greatest Food CitiesThe American cities with the greatest quantity and quality of fine restaurants.
The Top Ten
Fun fact: If you went out for dinner in NYC every night at a different restaurant, you would never repeat restaurants for 59 years
New York, the best food town in the world, if I could permanantly STICK myself to times square, I would, I love it that much. - MasterThrasher
Delicious! So many choices that are all 5 *****! Especially in Times Square - mvh0419
Their Vietnamese food in Chinatown was meh. It lacked flavor. Even my relatives and my mom makes better food than them.V 23 Comments
Chicago HAVE THE BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD PERIOD GREAT TASTE ANYTHING YOU EAT TRY PLACES LIKE LEONS, HAROLD CHICKEN, BEGGAR PIZZA, HOME RUN INN, ETC ASKS ANYBODY IN Chicago WHERE TO GO TO EAT YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO EAT NO OTHER PLACE
Best pizza in the world. Most ethnic and most authentic food in the world. We do know sports despite what jnormanii says... White Sox, Bulls. New York has decent pizza not best. Chicago is the greatest city in the world in every single aspect! - crazyeyes56
What's great about Chicago is that there is such a variety. One night you might feel like some good old pizza and then next night you might feel like some Chinese. Either way there are a ton of options. Some of my favorites include: Portillos, Lou Malnatis and the Purple Pig (check it out, I think it is only one location though).
Johnnies Beef, Portillos Hot Dogs, Shaws, Berkoff,Italian Village,Paradise Pub on and onV 22 Comments
The sour dough bread made IN SF is THE best that I have ever tasted. The lore is that sour dough bread made in SF is better tasting because of it's environs. Some of the best Northern Indian food I've ever tasted as well. - mgenet
Best Asian food choices outside the Orient.
San Francisco has amazing food because it is so diverse and so many cultures bring their food.
Their Chinese food is good. My relatives, however hated a Korean BBQ place in Oakland.V 7 Comments
Why is this #4? It's the realest real food in all of the US. Hard working, honest food that has roots. Bursting with a diversity of flavors from past and present which you don't see anywhere else.
No other city has genuine Creole cuisine. And no, that doesn't mean deep-fried. #1, easy. Just ask all the people who come here for the Superbowl and other major events - THEY'LL tell you it's the best!
We in New Orleans can make anything taste great. We make something out of nothing, and people love it. It's that, that makes New Orleans Cuisine so special.
By far the best food in the U.S.. The fancy restaurants are great, but also the hole in the wall spots may be even better. The flavor and love that is cooked into this creole city is to die for. The Seafood, Po Boys, Homemade Beignets mixed in with the great atmosphere and some of the most humble people makes this Not only my Favorite city, but it has the food to go with it!V 5 Comments
you can get almost anything you want in L.A. THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD( ITS RIGHT NEAR THE BODER, C'MON!)
THE BEST CHINESE FOOD, BURGERS, SOUL FOOD, INDIAN FOOD, ETC...
Truly an ethnic food melting pot.
Read Jonathan Gold, then thou shalt understand.
Not as good as NYC, but I would give it the number 2 spot.V 2 Comments

Meat lovers paradise! Best steak houses and BBQ joints.
Great diversity of cuisine, couldn't say that 10 years agoV 1 Comment
Extremely diverse! As a port city, there are influences from all over the world that come to Houston and stay here because of the food culture! The best kept secret in the country, as far as I'm concerned. And growing faster than anywhere else. Give it a shot!
Very diverse. People from all over the world and all over the nation have brought a great mix of food to this city. Especially great food choices inside the Loop. Don't forget Chinatown.
Best food in the nation. A LOT of everything you want, and it tastes great. Houston has something for everyone.
Houston should be number 1
Tons of cultural restaurants
STEAK AND BBQ
How did san fran and LA beat it?
Please -- get hold of yourself people -- Philly food ROCKS --- all around this town its a struggle to keep your waist line down, this town has such incredibly good food -- almost unfair to the rest of the country.
And our bread -- it's like a narcotic --
Invented water ice, invented cheese steak, invented soft pretzel, invented cream cheese, invented hoagie, PHILLY HAS THE BEST FOOD (AND I don't EVEN LIVE THERE)
...How is Philly not AT LEAST in the top three, must be more of a vote for the city you "think" has the best food.
I live here and my sister absolutely LOVES Geno's.V 8 Comments
There's no limit to your dining options here! You can dine in just about every hotel you see. You can eat outside, inside, in a pyramid, even in Paris! Vegas will amaze you, so make your way down there!
Cheap buffets gave way to top notch dining.
Most high end restaurants in America next to maybe NY
Mirage buffet was a OK, not too bad. I’m trying a different one on a future visitV 1 Comment
Well, I'm biased 'cause I live in the area, but restaurants like La Casa, Lo Sole Mio, Jaipur, Brother Sebastian's, etc. , are just great food. - drpeppersnapple
Lots of choices, many are chains, but a great variety of independant ethnic places!!
Best family owned Italian places in America. everything included and in some cases the wine also
I'm biased because I live in omaha, but there's so many diverse restaurants. Great affordable hole-in-the wall eateries owned by locals. Just drive down leavenworth!V 1 Comment
Farm-fresh and more micro-breweries putting out top-notch products than anywhere in the country. Portland won Food network's prize and is found on most top ten lists.
Amazing diversity of farm fresh ingredients meets creative inspired preparations at low prices, what's not to like?
Best BBQ in the world. Hands down. Period. Best combination of sauce and perfectly prepared meats.
The best steaks and BBQ on the planet.
KC has the best BBQ and great bars.
Northwest cuisine is contemporary, unpretentious and always fresh. Also, Dungeness crabs and our local salmon are far superior to any east coast equivalent. I'll give you people your lobster, but we'll stick with our own crab and salmon, thank you very much.
There is this food truck near my workplace and their crab is the freshest I have tasted they say that they get them from the harbor every few HOURS!
Seafood lovers heaven. Fish so fresh, you feel like you caught it yourself.
So many different types of food to choose from... Especially Maryland steamed crabs, my fave!
Baltimore has the best crabs and seafood because of the creshness of the Chesapeake bay.
Love Baltimore! FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT!
We have all different types of choices for BBQ, Tacos, Mexican Food, Asian Food, Coffee Houses, etc. - shiftaltkey
Baltimore and Boston have the best Seafood, Seattle is quite good as weel all should be in the top 10 - fanilyguy

If you love wings, you have to thank this city. Chicken wings were a garbage part of the animal, people didn't know what to do with them. Thanks to Buffalo, now chickens don't have enough wings! BUFFALO WINGS FTW - VADERtheIMPALER
I live here food is great... We have great homemade Polish food and Excellent Italian In Niagara Falls... huge little Italy... I suggest Micheals on Pine Ave...
You will never find another city in America that offers this many non chain restaurants and 90% of them are great. With a melting pot of world cultures all in one area you can always find what your taste may be... And no other place on the earth does wings like wny.
dude buffalo who invented HINT buffalo HINT wings! - x1240tony
Detroit is incredibly underrated when it comes to great food. Some of the best pizza and burgers anywhere. plus a myriad of choices for great ethnic foods!

There's actually some nice places to get a bite there.
Tons of seafood restaurants, chains, 5 star restaurants - mjoon
Charleston has to be top 10 seriously
Boston, Maryland best seafood? No. Portland is a hidden Jem of restaurants that feature classic & creative new age dishes that compliment the complex flavors of the locally harvested seafood.
I went here a few summers ago they have amazing food choices such as the two fat cats bakery and di millos floating restaurant I personally think its way better than LA granted LA is also probably the ugliest city>
best seafood and cajun food you can get. Crawfish is king down here - haharenee1
Phoenix has the likes of the Sanctuary's Executive Chef Beau Macmillan, healthier foods influenced from California (dungeness crab! ), much Mexican, Indian & many ethnic choices. AND Queen Creek Olive Mill (across the street from Schemfs farm with great peach orchard)...
Come on wheres atl
Although great food places aren't plentiful in Providence, the ones that you find in Providence are sure to make you freeze at the first bite and make you think "How does such great food come from such a small place? "
