It's that time of year again where 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 and your votes determine which restaurants move on until we ultimately crown a winner.

We've divided the Munch Madness bracket into four regions: Crimson, White, Houndstooth, and Yellowhammer. We start voting tomorrow (Thursday, March 15), 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 2018 Munch Madness winner on The Steve Shannon Morning Show on the morning of Friday, April

Take a look at the voting schedule below so you'll know when to vote for your favorites.
