Dunedin Smokehouse Wins Best Customer Service in Dunedin
After six rounds of voting, the family-owned barbecue restaurant on Main street edged out Art from the Heart Cafe for the 2012 title.
We started with 64 businesses in mid-March, but in the end there could be only one champion of customer service in Dunedin: The Dunedin Smokehouse.
The downtown restaurant ran away with the crown in our tournament, with strong support from Patch readers and customers.
Here's what some of our readers had to say in the final round:
"This place has THE most amazing BBQ I have ever tasted. The Montreal Corned Beef is to die for!!! And to top it off, some of the best drinks this person has ever had!! If you haven't already you must try some of their shots!!" (marty)"I think this is the best spot around Dunedin. Always fun to go there with my wife and kids and play some corn toss on the patio, eat some ribs and enjoy watching the walking traffic around Dunedin. My favorite server is Sherrie and the managers do a great job, too!" (Miles Miller)"Great food, cool place to meet people and the staff is second to none." (Bill Storck)
The Dunedin Smokehouse has until next week to prepare its acceptance speech, when we'll be paying the owners a visit, asking about what makes their service special and presenting them with their 2012 Readers' Choice certificate.
Thank you to all of the readers and local businesses who participated in our tournament, and stay tuned for more Readers' Choice competitions in the future.
