- You are voting (by midnight Wednesday) to add two places to the lineup of 14 listed below. So only comments about places NOT already in the 14 will be counted. (You'll get to vote on matchups beginning Friday, and votes will be part -- not all -- of how we decide winners.)
- Anonymous comments don't count. (I'm posting them because I'm trying to wean us slowly off the anonymous thing here, but will NOT count them -- so if you "voted" with an anonymous comment, go back, get a sign-in and vote so it will count! More on anonymous posting in general to come.)
- No chains with locations outside the Carolinas.
Big Daddy's Burger Bar.
Jake's Good Eats.
Lebowski's Neighborhood Grill.
So: Did your fave not make it? Comment on this, and the two top ones will be added to the bracket of 16. Have at it!
We'll announce the full bracket of 16, including pairings, in this Friday's CLT section.
The above 14 are in no particular order, and the order has nothing to do with eventual pairings.
Trying to remember prior year's brackets and results? Let me help!
The 2010 Fries final story is here and the bracket is here. (Use control + to zoom it bigger if you can't read it.)
The 2009 Pizza final results are here and the bracket is here.
And the 2008 Wings final wrapup is here and the bracket is here.
