No. 20 Houston

21 of 22

A good beer is essential for washing down this city's top 5 barbecue and its No.1 burgers. Voters here perhaps had eyes more for the food than for other folks-the city ranked in the bottom five for people-watching. For local flavor, check out Saint Arnold Brewing Company, which offers tastings every day but Sunday, and whose namesake was supposedly involved in a spontaneous beer miracle.
