The surveyors have covered a ton of restaurants between them, but folks in this city are actually eating out less, 3.2 times per week compared to 3.3 in our last survey. Even so, that is more than the national average of 3.1, which may have something to do with the city's low prices - an average meal cost $30.15, which was down 1.9% since the last survey and is five bucks lower than the national average of $35.57.
So which eateries came out on top? Drumroll! For the 17th straight year, Bacchanaila has been named the city's best restaurant, scoring a 29 out of 30 in the Food category. That eatery also won the Most Popular title, while Nan Thai Fine Dining won for Decor and Buckhead's Bone's Restaurant took the top honors in the service category. If you're looking to try something fresh, hit up Woodfire Grill, which was named the city's Top Newcomer.
