Do you like this?

It's no secret Chattanoogans love to make their voices heard in comment sections online, and Reddit is no different. Search “Chattanooga” on the site and, like the city itself, you’ll find a small but vocal community full of opinions and hyperbole. The most recent post asked, “Favorite lunch spot in downtown Chattanooga?” to which 89 respondents rave over the entire landscape of downtown dining. But by far, most threads involve advice solicited by potential newcomers to town. On this subject, the “advice” runs the gamut from the pros and cons of living downtown (“just avoid it,” says one commentor), to opinions of Mayor Ron Littlefield (“a complete idiot and total slimeball”) and a rather involved argument on the merits of McKay Books. In general, Chattanoogans give their city an upvote and are quick to point out its high and low points. A group of Chattanooga Redditors once gathered at various downtown restaurants, but the group now seems dormant.
