Mellow Mushroom? Santiago's?  Heavy, heavy sigh ballot stuffers...

This is a disgrace that Russel's Smoke house wasn't nominated for best BBQ.  Brothers BBQ got the nod? Are you kidding me?  That is fast food compared to Russel's.  Across the board, everything at Russel's is far superior to those on that list.  Quite frankly, its better than the so-called best BBQ joints in the country (Blue Smoke, Salt Lick, etc.)  Just my $0.02

I can't imagine what would bring a person to submit Beau Jo's or Mellow Mushroom as best pizza or even best specialty pizza with as many truly great pizza restaurants we have in this town.  In fact the only decent pizza listed in either of the two groups is Hops and Pie.  IMO all the others listed are hacks.  Who is stuffing the ballot boxes?

Are you going to release the results so far for the entertainment categories?

Seeing KFC and Popeye's as finalists for friend chicken has killed any desire I had to keep on responding to this reader's poll.

BBQ: Country Time and Winston Hill's. Seriously, just go eat at either place and then change your vote.

Why is Hey PB&J in the food cart category? It is a Food Truck.

@david.m.roth Not exactly nominated, but rather voted on by Westword readers. These are just the top choices so far. Voters are still free to select other options. Otherwise, I totally agree with you.
