It's that time of year--we're asking our listeners to help us find the best restaurant in Tuscaloosa with our Munch Madness competition! Munch Madness is a bracket-style challenge that pits the best restaurants in Tuscaloosa and Northport against each other; your votes in our online polls determine which restaurants advance to the finals--and which restaurant will win the 2016 Munch Madness competition!

We've divided the Munch Madness bracket into 4 regions: Crimson, White, Houndstooth, and Yellowhammer. We start voting tomorrow (Thursday, March 16), and the restaurants with the most votes will progress to the next round until we've determined a winner.

You'll be able to vote as often as you like as long as the polls are open, and the results of each poll are shown in real time on our site--until we get to the finals, when we'll keep the vote totals hidden. We'll announce the 2017 Munch Madness winner on the air Thursday, April 6th!
