Foodaton : noun : [food-uh-tuhn]

Definition:  An area high in eating-out options.

     Coined by my father (assuming it hasn't been used in the past), this word is more or less what it sounds like: a ton of food.  It's that part of town that every decent-sized town has that is just jam-packed with chain and local restaurants.  From IHOP to Cracker Barrel to In-N-Out to Five Guys to Cafe Río to everything else one might think of as common fast food or dine-in locations.  Add to that the plethora of local eateries one might find in any given tourist trap, and you have a veritable food-a-palooza.  Or, in other words, a foodaton.  Have fun choosing where to eat in that mess.
