Nominate Your Favorite Places to Eat & Drink – The Best of Abilene

The goal of The Best of Abilene is simply to identify the very best business in each category, according to you, the public. We believe the best judge of a great business is the consumer, not some out of touch panel of judges.

So, we’d love to know who you think is the best in Abilene and the surrounding area when it comes to restaurants, bars, coffee shops and more.

We are changing things up a bit this year. Not only are we adding some categories, but we’re also changing the name of a couple of categories.

To help streamline the process, we’re automatically including as many businesses as possible (based on previous winners and nominees). So, if there’s a business missing from any particular category, that’s who you should nominate, not the businesses already listed.

The nomination period ends at midnight on March 7th, 2017. Voting will start shortly there-after.

Here are the categories currently represented in The Best of Abilene:

  • Best All-Around Restaurant

This is our fourth year of The Best of Abilene awards, so we wanted to make sure the entire process was a good experience for everyone.

Our goal is to give the Abilene area an actual voice while maintaining a high level of integrity and credibility.

With that said, please feel free to let us know which categories you think should be added next year. Thank you.

We reserve the right to dismiss votes we believe are fraudulent. We also reserve the right to re-categorize a business based on our views of said business.
