I dont think Little Cannoli Bakery should be considered for this award. It isnt really a restaurant. Just my opinion tho. It doesnt fit with the theme of the poll.

I Agree. they make really good cookies but that is all. To run a restaurant it takes a lot more than a good cookie.

Did you mean to set up the poll so that you can vote more than once? Just curious.

Wow, I guess I'm just too picky to pick ANY of these the top restaurant in Salem. I choose Rudi's. But it didn't make your list.

Da Vinci's is overpriced for what you actually get, and I have gotten not so great food there, and snobby service.

Aren't there two La Hacienda Real's?

I'm really out of this one - I think I grabbed a slice at Straight from NY several years ago, but other than that....

My boss took my co-workers and I to Rudy's for a Christmas gift last week. I thought it was excellent. I'll write a review and post it.

This poll seems pretty arbitrary...very unscientific.

It will be very embarrassing for Salem if La Hacienda Real wins. I love Mexican food, but this place just gives you a lot of slop.

Salem, wake up!

In my opinion the poll should be category specific; i.e., Chinese, Mexican, Italian, American, Asian, BBQ, buffet, cafe, coffee, deli, pubs, bakery, Japanese, pizza, seafood, steak, Thai, Vietnamese, Mediterranean/Greek, breakfast, burgers & best place for kids, etc. Out of 6 choices there are 2 pizza places on this poll alone!

Have you ever filled out one of the "best restaurants of the year" forms from the SJ?
You have to fill out a certain percentage of the categories to have your form accepted. How many people have favorites in more than 4 or 5 categories? I know we don't. The one time I tried filling out the form, I ended up nominating places I'd heard about from friends and at work. Then I couldn't bring myself to enter it.

I think Kwan's is the best ever. Why isn't it on the list?
