Georgia is home to an incredible selection of restaurants, and while there are plenty to add to your bucket list of eateries to try, there's one that was recognized as being the one restaurant in the state you simply have to visit.

The Daily Meal took a deep dive in rankings and reviews of top restaurants in each state, both casual and upscale, to see which eateries are a must-try for both locals and tourists. Additionally, the list factors in restaurants that are "emblematic of their state's history, culinary traditions and preferred cuisine."

According to the list, the one restaurant in Georgia that all foodies and lovers of delicious meals need to visit at some point is H&H Soul Food in Macon. Founded in the late 1950s, this longtime restaurant serving up incredible Southern comfort and soul food has been an institution in the community for decades.

H&H Soul Food is located at 807 Forsyth Street in Macon.

Here's what the site had to say:

"Enjoy the best of Southern cuisine and culture at H&H Soul Food, an iconic Georgia landmark in the charming town of Macon. Founded in 1959 by Inez Hill and Louise Hudson, the restaurant was made famous during the 1970s when it was frequented by members of the Allman Brothers Band and gained even more fame in 2007, when it was featured on an episode of 'Oprah's Favorite Things.' Classic soul food on the menu includes fried chicken, smoked turkey, barbecue brisket and more, with a rotating menu of vegetables that includes collards, squash, lima beans, black-eyed peas and okra."
