Best of West County Food & Dining 2018

May 01, 2018 12:00AM ● By Brian Saucedo
Hear ye, hear ye! The Best of West County winners are announced. Thank you to our loyal readers who took the time to vote for the tops in town when it comes to favorite foods and dining experiences. In January, we called upon you to write-in your restaurant recommendations in more than 50 food and dining categories. After carefully vetting ballots for any duplicates or multiples originating from one source (no ballot stuffing allowed), we arrived at the resulting winners. Please enjoy perusing your list of who’s Best of West County and pay them a visit. And coming in our July issue, we’ll publish the Best of Retail & Professional Services results. 

And the winners are for Best…
