Houston is on Zagat's new list that ranks the 30 most exciting food cities in America for 2017.
The dining website asked editors nationwide to make a case for the city they believe had the biggest year in food, based on the number of exciting new restaurant openings, award recognition, and attention from the national media. Then it asked media food critics for their input.
Houston ranked at Number 13, with Zagat referring to the "diversity" of cuisine available and the "exploding" number of restaurants.
Other Texas cities on the list include Austin at Number 2and Dallas-Fort Worth at Number 16.
