Best of the Taste

All restaurants are entered into the Best of the Taste Competition.  Judges spend a few hours on Friday
afternoon sampling almost 100 menu items to determine our winners.

The Winner of each category receives the Silver Plater Award.  Look for the Silver Plater displayed in the Restaurant’s booth throughout the weekend and in their restaurants throughout the year. 

 A special thank you to Fox46 and Good Day Carolina’s morning anchors for hosting the 2018 award ceremony.  

Thank you to our 2018 Presenting Sponsor for The Best of The Taste Awards:
