All Time Favorites 2019-2020

A tried and true list of All Time Favorites since 2006! 50 Favorites Winners in each category change every year, except for the "All Time Favorites." These are dishes that Birmingham Restaurants publisher, Jan Walsh has enjoyed more than once, and some many times through the years. Only when she finds a dish she likes better than the current All Time Favorite, at a restaurant, does its All Time Favorite change.
