Polls such as this are an exercise in silliness, and should be reported to the Minister of Silly Walks.
For years now, The Weekly Alibi has produced lists of the Best of Burque food that is populated by reader polls. While such polls are not scientifically constructed and are not subject to tests of statistical significance, they often result in some surprising choices. You need to be careful to not interpret such lists as being collection of the best in each category, but simply the most popular in each category on the day that the readers entered their choices into the poll.
This is a popularity contest, purely and simply. That being said, let me show you where I agree and disagree with the results.
(These are my opinions alone)
Nonsense. Try India Kitchen ghost heat.
I don't miss it at all.
NFW. Nicky V's is, hands down.
Not even close. Budai is the star here.
Nope. The Gurung's Namaste is. Followed very closely by Ajay & Rajul Gupta's India Kitchen.
No way. Cafe Giuseppe and Golden Crown Panaderia tie for this spot.
No freakin' way. Five Guys is a cruel joke. There are at least a dozen better.
Nope. Smokehouse and The Whole Hog are far superior.
What a joke. Mary & Tito's and El Bruno's (on 4th) are far superior. And Mary & Tito's was given a prestigious James Beard America's Classic award. So there.
Nope. Mary & Tito's wins this hands down.
Urbanspoon creates a list of the top 100 restaurants in the Duke Cith area. Again, this is a popularity contest and not a "best of" list. Here are some off the top (on October 8, 2011):
This is rightfully the most popular restaurant in Albuquerque, and it defines what New Mexican cuisine is all about. It is not the best in town, but it is dear to the hearts of generations on UNM students, families, and various camp followers. It is like Nelson Algren's Lovely with a Broken Nose.... (FGI)
Why is the best restaurant in town way down here?
Beats me all hollow.
I still love the Alibi.
