Asheville is ranked 10th in the list of cities that offer first-class restaurants and cuisine, according to the results released on Wednesday, January 18.

When examining food and other categories, the website said it considered “quality and quantity ratings and reviews” about “accommodations, restaurants and places of interest” across the country.

Asheville was the only North Carolina city to make the top 10 in the food rankings. Tripadvisor has been recognized as a popular travel destination for great restaurants near mountain scenery.

“If you love eating local and supporting sustainable agriculture, come to Asheville — and eat, eat, eat,” Tripadvisor wrote in its report. “In this city with a population of less than 100,000 people 17 farmers marketsand the local restaurant scene is about taking advantage of the seasonal produce that’s sold there.”

For those who come thirsty, Tripadvisor also ranked Asheville for its breweries. It may come as a surprise mountain tourist town recently made the list of beer-drinking cities in the U.S., according to McClatchy News.
