Vote for the Best Restaurant in Cumberland Valley

Every March brings a collection of various brackets to determine who is the best. Now, for the first time, Cumberland Valley's top 64 restaurants will compete in the Meal Madness bracket to determine the Best Restaurant in Cumberland Valley!

Cumberland Valley's more than 250 local restaurants serve a tempting variety of palate-pleasing dishes and drinks – from classic American comfort foods to international flavors and everything in between. Whether it's sweet or savory, spicy or mild, healthy or indulgent, both visitors and residents can find a spot that will delight their taste buds. The Meal Madness bracket celebrates the rich diversity of these culinary offerings and supports these small businesses that contribute to our community's unique character and economic livelihood. 

We chose the restaurants included in the bracket based on the number of pageviews their listing received on during 2021, as well as TripAdvisor ratings. Beginning on March 1, 2022, you can vote for your favorite restaurant in 32 matchups on our social media stories over a 24-hour period. The winner of the vote advances in the tournament and through their region (Downtown Carlisle, Mechanicsburg, Boiling Springs/Newville/Carlisle/Mt. Holly, and the West Shore).

Plus, you have a chance to be a winner yourself. Once we unveil the bracket, we want to hear who you think will be in the Final Four. Entries with the correct answers will be entered in a raffle to win a $50 gift card to the winning restaurant. You can leave your guesses on our social media channels. 

So, show your love for your favorite restaurant and vote to help them advance to the next round. And, be sure to share with your family and friends!
