(page 1 of 3)

The Memphis magazine Readers’ Restaurant Poll is our community’s definitive annual survey on where to eat. Treat it like gospel; verily, our readers’ choices are the truth.
The readers’ poll boasts 44 categories that cover all types of cuisine and every part of the meal from cocktails and salads to late-night dining. Whether you’re looking for the best comfort food or adventures in eating you can get it in Memphis.

Because dining out is a social experience as much as a culinary one, we include such categories as Best People-Watching, Best Patio Dining, and Best Ambience, as they speak to our desire to share delectable tastes with our buds.

Presentation is always on the minds of our finest chefs, and it’s no different for our restaurant poll. Each winner is in bold type and tops the category’s finalists. Suffice to say, all of our leading vote-getters are distinguished representatives of the local food industry and are quite deserving of your patronage.

Congratulations to all our winners and finalists, and, also, thank you, from the bottom of our stomachs.
