Results of our annual reader survey of the best
food and drink, services, shopping and more

In this year’s BEST OF SOUTHLAKE reader survey we received confirmation that many of you have strong opinions and want to share your insider perspective with others. The BEST OF SOUTHLAKE 2019 survey had more than 1,000 completed ballots, and local businesses received over 11,000 votes in one or more categories. A statistically valid survey at the county-wide level is approximately 500 responses, so to have such a high number of completed ballots from a smaller geographic area like Southlake ensures the accuracy of these picks. To prevent ballot stuffing, readers were only allowed to submit one ballot per email address, and also had to reside in the greater Tarrant County area. In addition, to encourage a broad base of votes in each category, participants who cast votes in 20 or more categories were eligible to receive a $500 grand prize. To be among the BEST OF SOUTHLAKE winners you had to meet certain criteria. First, you had to have a location in Southlake or, in the case of a service-based business, Southlake had to be part of your service area. You also had to be a top vote-getter in your category. In many categories we are recognizing two winners — both a Readers’ Choice and a Publisher’s Pick. Both winners were top vote-getters in their respective categories. While we congratulate these winners, we recognize that many successful and popular businesses did not make the list. Our area is fortunate to have a variety of choices from which to select and this list is provided as a service to readers who may be new to the area or are looking to branch out and try a new restaurant, service-related business, or other retailer. You’ll find the complete list of 96 winners in 64 categories on the following pages.
