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.
