In the last episode of Season 1 of The Eater Upsell, a foodie podcast hosted by Greg Morabito and Helen Rosner, they chatted with Alton Brown who just so nonchalantly named Memphis as his pick for the best food town in America. He gave a shoutout to Gibson’s Donuts, Gus’s Fried Chicken, and Dyer’s. High praise indeed!

“I’ve gotta say, Memphis, Tennessee: probably my number-one food town in the U.S.” – Alton Brown
