We want to remind you to check the Magnolia Voice Restaurant Section. We have information on all restaurants in the neighborhood and you rate them based on your experience. Each computer is only allowed one vote to keep the system fair. While the rating system is certainly not scientific, we think it is a pretty good indicator of how people feel about our local eateries.
We started the restaurant ratings in September and after five months there are some clear favorites. Here are the current top five restaurants (in order) as chosen by Magnolia Voice readers:
Number one Red Mill has been a consistent favorite from the start with comments like this one from C.J.:
“There isn’t a better burger joint between here and Chicago (unless you count their Phinney location). The shakes are thick, the onion rings are crisp and tangy, and the burgers are worth risking arterial sclerosis.”
Ichiro also feels the love from readers, with this recent comment from Valentijn:
“I’ve always liked this place, but it’s gotten even better lately. Very fresh sushi, lighter tempura batter, more flavorful gyoza sauce…… And the staff are friendly, attentive, and fast!”
There is a lot of loyalty to Nikos too, this from DB:
“The best little dinner in the Village! Food always hot and fresh. Not a lot of fanfare but consistently good. Thank you Nikos”
High praise for Mulleady’s from Lesley:
“We love this neighborhood restaurant and bar! The food is consistently good and it has that wonderful neighborhood feel.”
And a restaurant that is new to Magnolia cracked the top five already. The Fightin’ Cock Roaster just opened in November and is getting rave reviews like this one from Cathy:
“Fantastic food. My husband and I had the Mauler, and can hardly wait to go back to try all the rest of the menu. Friendly staff were fun too.”
