where to go? Readers of the Arkansas Times have plenty of good ideas.
January 31, 2003
Many familiar faces return to their accustomed places atop the categories
in the Arkansas Times' annual reader poll of the best restaurants
But there are many
fresh faces this year. And that was a marked change from the 2001 contest,
which reflected a decided lull in the state's restaurant business. .
Not only are there
more restaurants to choose from, the balloting reflects a growing diversity
of choices . . .
Ballots were distributed
in two issues of the Arkansas Times. They were counted by the Times
staff. As usual, we made efforts to eliminate ballots that were
produced by restaurant-organized campaigns. We also attempt to limit
voting to individual restaurant locations, but some chains have
become so standardized and ubiquitous that, in certain categories,
we didn't attempt to differentiate.
