Number one is Portland, OR; 5 is Austin, TX, and Las Vegas is 9. Portland, ME is 17, New York is 18, Charleston, SC is 19, and Oakland, CA is 20.
If you don’t think Louisiana/Mississippi has the best food, you’re clearly in the wrong place. We can take you to several corner shops, gas stations and hole-in-the-wall to bring you one of the best meals you’ll ever have.
