OMG I just love the Chuy's queso with beef - gotta agree on that one.
Do also love all the appetizers at Houlihan's and those amazing fries with dip at Splitsville!

We could create our own categories, but YES, they were all 'really a category' in the magazine.
They do this every year - Critic's Pick and Reader's Pick for each category.
That makes the judges pretty much Everyone who bothered to vote!

Hmmm, not so hard to find, but here's the links:

El Gabaco and Mi Tierra are both KEEPERS! We'll definitely revisit both of these spots. YUM!

Interesting lists! I've been to Pizza Nizza and India Star and agree they're the tops. Is there any place in Arlington to get top shelf Bulgogi?

I absolutely love Jamaican Gates and they have music and dancing on weekends. It's small but great atmosphere and the food was well worth a nod on the Food Network
