With everything that Las Vegas has to offer, where does it rank when it come to “foodie” appeal? That’s what The Mike & Carla Morning Show talked about this morning and you might be a little shocked (SHOCKED) when you find out where we rank with other big cities!
A new study published by Wallethub looked at 182 U.S. cities and ranked them based on was tabbed as their “foodie” appeal. They weighed 29 different factors, including the cost of restaurants and groceries . . . the number, diversity, and quality of gourmet options . . . and the local food, including food trucks and farmer’s markets.
Once again, cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles not even able to crack the Top 10, but place respectfully, however, it was Pearl City, Hawaii that was the least “foodie” city in America! Other cities that came in near the bottom of the barrel, Montgomery, Alabama, Moreno Valley California, Shreveport, Louisiana and Jackson, Mississippi!
Now considering all the restaurants in Las Vegas up and down the strips that generate a five star rating and those establishments off the strip that locals tend to favor, sorry to say that Las Vegas was not even in the Top 5!
Pretty amazing for a city like ours NOT to be considered a “foodie” favorite when it comes to big cities in the country, considering our diversity, cultures and all the different type restaurants available here! However, we shouldn’t feel that bad since a few other cities that you would think ranked higher didn’t make the Top 5 as well…cities like Seattle, Tampa…even San Diego didn’t make the cut!
So what major metro areas made it into the Top 5, scroll down and check it out…and you can also see where Las Vegas is ranked! Just one of the things that came up this morning in The M&C’s segment we like to call, “A Few Things We Think You Should Know”!
