The Best Things to Eat and Drink in Georgia
We know the first food item that might pop in to your mind for Georgia: peaches. But there’s more to the Empire State of the South than those stone fruits. Although many of the top picks are in the capital, don’t overlook Savannah, Augusta, and Athens as a foodie destination. The heart of the Coastal Empire is giving Atlanta a culinary run for its money. Find out the details in our first-annual guide to the best food and drink in every state.
Southern food has seen its reach extend far past the Mason-Dixon Line over the last decade. Fried chicken and barbecue has spread far beyond their roots to across the country. Trying to pick a single restaurant from the state to represent these crowded categories was quite a challenge. Hopefully you’ll see your favorites here (or at least the start of a very good debate).
Over the course of the past year we’ve honored everything from its best hot dogs and brunch spot to its best bar and craft beer in our comprehensive and wide-ranging lists and rankings, compiled through extensive research and with input from a wide network of site contributors, bloggers, journalists, and chefs.We’ve compiled these into individual galleries celebrating the best food and drink in every state, and you can find our Georgia gallery here.
