Burien’s first-ever B-Town’s BEST Food & Drink awards has closed its polls and is ready to present our winning restaurants and dining establishments! Our contest was designed as a hyperlocal food and beverage service competition that included only those establishments within Burien, competing amongst a handful of selected categories. The flagship competition was met with a wonderful reception by many of our blog’s readers and other local voters. In fact, nearly 1,200 locally-sourced responses were gathered, providing a large sample from our “foodie” population. The website which hosted the voting form, b-townsbest.com, saw 2,275 unique visitors during the duration of the contest (polls were kept open for 45 days). What a great turnout! At long last, The B-Town Blog is pleased to present this year’s winners:

  1. Agree on: Elliot Bay, Tin Room, and El Riconsito, but not sure of the others. Is it that they’re the best, or that more people go to those establishments (due to price, etc.). Definitely prefer Countryside Cafe to Huckleberry square
