If you're a self-described foodie, you likely enjoy searching out and trying new restaurants to sample the best of what a city has to offer. And you're not alone!

LoveFood compiled a list of the best foodie city in each state, searching around America's "sprawling metropolises filled with Michelin-starred establishments [and] surprising small cities whose restaurants champion regional ingredients" to give food connoisseurs the best shot at finding incredible dining experiences.

According to the list, the best foodie city in all of Tennessee is Nashville — after all, it even has a famous style of chicken named after it! This destination has plenty of must-try restaurants that are sure to impress any foodie. Here's what LoveFood had to say about Tennessee's best foodie city:

"Music City has a food scene that really sings. No trip here would be complete without a taste of Nashville's famous hot chicken; this zingy dish is ubiquitous in the city, but many swear by Prince's, the veteran joint that invented the concept. There's a lot more to Nashville food than fiery poultry dishes, though. Try imaginative spots such as Moto, an Italian restaurant whose menu features the likes of lobster strozzapreti pasta, and bucatini (hollow spaghetti) carbonara. Later, head to the down-to-earth Mas Tacos Por Favor in East Nashville for the best Mexican food in the city."
