Who Has the Best Burger in Central Florida?

Who Has the Best Burger in Central Florida?

Burger generic

So much has changed since the last time we conducted a search for Best Burger in our Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants, one of our most popular categories.

For one thing, many of the nominiees from last year are no longer open, including North Quarter Tavern, Oblivion Taproom, Nova, TR Fire Grill and Nona Tap Room. 

For another thing: The burger game has really been kicked up a couple of notches by some newcomers, some of whom you’ll see in the list of nominees below.

What’s the Best Italian Restaurant in Central Florida?

Terralina clams

There was a time when a restaurant would boil up some pasta, toss on some meat rolled into a ball, douse it all with tomato sauce and call it Italian.

My how things have changed.

Now you can find more nuanced Italian food inspired by the many regions of the country: Ligurian, Neapolitan, Tuscan, Sicilian. And so much of it is so very good. So let’s find the restaurant most deserving to receive the Foodster Award for Best Italian.

This is going to be a difficult category to narrow down. The restaurants listed here are among the best Italians in town. You may select up to FIVE of your favorites you’d like to see advance to the finals.

If you have a favorite Italian restaurant not on the list, you may write the name of the restaurant in. But please, be certain that the restaurant isn’t listed elsewhere on the roster already. If it is, your write-in vote — and any subsequent votes it receives — will be deleted; the votes will not be added to the previous entry.

Also, remember that the Foodster Awards are for Independent Restaurants with three or fewer locations. Any chains written in will also be deleted. No chains.

Nominations will close on Oct. 17. The restaurants receiving the most votes will advance to the finals.

Here are the nominees:

Who has the Best Greek Food in Orlando?

Kebabs

Our next Foodster Award for Independent Restaurants will be for Best Greek. Who has your favorite souvlaki? Whose ouzo oozes warmth? Let us know.

These are the nominees for Best Greek Restaurant. You may vote for as many as five nominees. You may also write in a candidate, but please, make sure the name isn’t already on the list — if it is, your entry and any subsequent votes for it will be deleted. Also, do not nominate a restaurant with more than three locations.

Note: This category is for restaurants that identify as Greek — Mediterranean and Middle Eastern categories will be separate.

The top vote getters will advance to the finals.

Nominations will be accepted through Aug. 29.

See the nominees below.
