The people have spoken.

We're happy again to announce the winners in the Arkansas Times' annual Readers Choice awards to the best restaurants in Arkansas. It's the state's longest-running restaurant contest.

We ran ballots on successive weeks in November. We spent weeks afterward tallying thousands of votes. Now we present the winners, accompanied by features on a variety of food-related topics from all over Arkansas. We have barbecue, curry, a historic Heights haunt, baseball park cuisine and a find in western Arkansas, among other gastronomic delights.

The winners follow. Runners-up are listed alphabetically.
