Dallas has a pretty good handle on its burgers. Here's The Mark Cuban burger from Rodeo Goat: a beef patty with ham, sweet whole grain mustard, agave mustard and house pickles.

The S-N-O-B word has been used a time or two when describing Dallasites. It rears its head in Travel + Leisure's latest list, though look here: We are way less snobby than Houston or Austin, according to a list of the 20 "Best Cities for Food Snobs."

Pecan Lodge certainly feeds Dallas' ego as a top food spot.

The magazine also claims Cleveland, Ohio, is a better food snob city than Dallas. I turn my nose up at that.

All joking aside, this is a compliment: The magazine picked 20 cities that any food lover might enjoy traveling to. Seattle and San Francisco are at the bottom of the list, and Dallas comes in at No. 17 of 20.

The meat lovers in Dallas like Pecan Lodge and Rodeo Goat, and we "also clean up nicely for brunch," the article says. It describes Dallasites as adventurous eaters who can get into new foodie districts such as Trinity Groves.

How do we burn off all those calories? "Dancing in the well-ranked nightclubs," the article says. If anyone out there really burns off their calories by dancing in nightclubs, I want to be your new Saturday night best friend. And I want to know where you buy such comfortable high heels.

The "brainy hipsters" of Austin ranked at No. 12 -- which seems low for our capital city's food-centric scene. Austin might not need another ego boost, anyhow. But now Houston's going to have to keep its in check: T+L gave Houston the No. 1 spot.
