Aaaaaaaaaand we're back!

We apologize for the delay – we wanted to pause Munch Madness until after all the severe weather left our area. We simply didn't want to be promoting a bracket contest when the chief concern should have been on our communities' safety and wellbeing.

But now that the skies are (somewhat) clear, let's get back into Munch Madness 2021!

We're down to our last quadrant of first-round voting. The Yellowhammer Region is set to be a tough one, but we know all these restaurants' loyal patrons will pull through and make them proud! After the eight-best from this region is decided, we're headed to the free-for-all: the Tasty Thirty-Two kicks off TOMORROW!

Let's take a look at our contenders:
