Dining out in 2020 evolved into dining outSIDE due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It's also been the year of curbside pick-up and delivery, something most all restaurants initiated in the last eight months. And if not all offered delivery, they HAVE all offered curbside.

Recently I conducted my own survey, asking folks to pick their favorite Owensboro restaurants, I got an enormous amount of DIFFERENT selections. And I need to remind you that I began the survey prior to new restrictions issued this week for Kentucky restaurants and bars.

Those new restrictions include the suspension of indoor dining from November 20th through December 13th. And some of the comments about the restaurants that made the cut reflect indoor service.

But we encourage all of you to support ALL restaurants over the next three-plus weeks by ordering take-out or delivery. And we will do the same.

Anyway, I took all the responses and formulated a top ten. Accompanied by quotes about select locations and some of my own thoughts AND including a list of "honorable mentions," these are all the restaurants that got multiple votes.

(SPOILER ALERT: There's a three-way tie for number one.)
