Yes, we're already there again. Even now, in these Venus temperatures, we're gearing up for our big ol' issue: Best Of Dallas. If the Rapture goes on as predicted, we're looking at one of the last, great Best Of's ever. So, naturally, we want your feedback.

After the jump, you'll find a sampling of the Readers Picks' categories from last year. We're asking you: which foodie categories do you like? Which need to be thrown to the curb? Which categories are so irreplaceable, it'd be better to chisel them onto some sort of dual stone tablet?

READERS' PICKS: THE CATEGORIES FOR FOOD & DRINK, 2010:


Best Appetizer

Best Breakfast

Best Cup of Coffee

Best Fancy Restaurant

Best Bagel

Best Sushi

Best Salsa

Best Pizza

Best Greek Restaurant

Best Wine List

So, which to keep and let go? And what are we missing? Let us know what you think in the comments. We'll let you know how's it going, of course.

There so many different and interesting food categories. I think it is difficult to choose the Best of Dallas from this categories. I am little bit confuse. I think I need more time for it.

Best Greek Restaurant? Kind of random, especially if you're not including other ethnic categories.

People need to get over their boner for gross-ass street tacos.  It's  Goddamned TREND, and none of 'em are that great.  Ooh!  See how that corn tortilla immediately fell apart and I've got grease and shit down my arm now?  How authentic!

Best BYOB restaurant.  Best burger.  Best Mediterranean.  Differentiate breakfast and brunch--I like to go out for weekday breakfast, but most people lump weekend brunch into the mix.  Best neighborhood restaurant.  Best cheap restaurant.  Best dessert!!!!!!!!

Out:best - coffee, "fancy" restaurant, bagel.While I agree that putting PF changs as best chinese, seems like homework wasn't done, I would still like to know what the best really is.  Along with, best seafood.I think you should hold a competition for the local culinary schools too.

I was surprised there wasn't a 'best fajita'! If there was, I'd definitely say the fajitas from the Pasados off central - their butter sauce really makes them one of a kind :)

No
No

I stopped reading when I saw "PF Changs" win "Best Chinese" and "Starbucks" win "Best Coffee"

Unless you're also gonna run Best Donut and Best Breakfast Taco,  Best Bagel needs to go.

Is there an official Readers' Pick Best Taqueria category?
