Best of Memphis 2008 Intro 

Readers came out in record numbers this year to vote in the Flyer's Best of Memphis Readers' Poll

Readers came out in record numbers this year to vote in the Flyer's Best of Memphis Readers' Poll, and if there's something to be discerned from this year's results, it's that Memphians are fed up with Mayor Willie Herenton's antics and that they love fried chicken. It was the mayor in a rout to win "Best Failure," and Gus's, the winner of the "Best Fried Chicken" category, received the most votes out of all the winners. Rounding out the top-five vote getters: 2) Memphis Pizza Café ("Best Pizza"); 3) Flying Saucer ("Best Beer Selection"); 4) The Orpheum ("Best Live Theater"); and 5) Huey's ("Best Burger").

Best of the Best of Memphis winners — designated by "BOM" — are those places and people who dominated their categories, receiving three times as many votes as the second-place winners. Readers' Choice means the vote was too close to call.

As always, the Flyer thanks our readers for participating and our advertisers for their support.

The Best of Memphis issue was written by Alicia Buxton, Mary Cashiola, Shara Clark, Chris Davis, Pamela Denney, Susan Ellis, Michael Finger, Leonard Gill, Chris Herrington, Bianca Phillips, and Bruce VanWyngarden and designed by Carrie Beasley.
