Last January to March, our magazine encouraged readers to submit nominations for their favorite local restaurants in Kansas. We received more than 100 nominations through our website and social media. The tally left us with some close results, including a three-way tie for the 50th slot. So we took the top 53 nominations and held a daily online voting through May for our final readers' choice list. Here the final twenty top eateries picked by our readers and fans.
